Pentax K-5
Posted By: dndcdr, 11-19-2011, 04:35 PM

just saw a price of a new K-5 for less than $1,000. I will be buying at least one of these when the new model comes out. The price may drop to around $800 or $700 if lucky.

Yes, also $995 at e-bay via a Canadian site that has been mentioned here before (prodigital2000) - marked "this weekend only!" And maybe next weekend, and maybe other times too.. one never can tell.

Anyone know if the place in the first link (AJ Richies) is reputable?

UPDATE: Never mind, a quick Google search and reading reviews at confirms they may not be the best place to buy from.
