  #1 Black Friday Sale - K-5 for $985
Posted By: stevejs2, 11-18-2011, 11:19 PM is currently selling the K-5 for $985 or with the 18-55 kit lens for $1079 with free shipping. Has anyone had any experience with Fumfie? Deal sounds almost too good to be true. I've had my eye on the K-5 for a while, and I'm ready to jump at this deal if it is good as it seems.

From the picture on the website (Pentax K-5 Digital SLR Camera W/18-55mm Zoom Lens (Black)) it appears that the kit lens is the weather resistant version. Is it safe to assume that the K-5 kit lens is indeed always the WR lens?

For the record, I've never hear of this.

And yes, the kit lens that comes with the K-5 is the WR version.

Sounds like they are decent, but try to up sell things quite a bit: fumfie (see also: JerseyPhotoStore) Reviews - Ratings at ResellerRatings. I hope B and H/ Amazon drop their K5 prices below 1000 soon.
