Amazon K5 Body $979
Posted By: seachunk2, 05-02-2012, 03:05 PM

I saw that Amazon itself has the K5 body for $979 and with the 18-55 WR for $1079.

Looks like a good deal to me! If amazon is allowed to sell them cheaper, other US retailers should also be able to...

I want a K5 so bad I can taste it! But when I see these price cuts, my suspicious side asks, "If they're discounting their top of the line camera...what's coming just around the bend?"

Well a new model will be $1500+ so if the money is there and the want is there GET IT! and use the rest on lenses Also a new model may have some initial quirks to iron out too.

The DA 35mm is also selling for below MSRP. Are these prices just unofficial dealers dumping what's left of the pre-UPP stock? The sold-by-amazon 35mm is also below MSRP, but its availability is 1-2 months out. Hmm...
