Super find! Makes me wonder how soon the K-3 is going to hit shelves with all the discounts, pushes, annoucements, etc.

Yes, I came here to post about the deal too. The K-5 discount is really getting silly. They had better be shipping a K-3 (or whatever) pretty soon, because a lot of people are now going to officially sit on their hands and wait for it.

JinDesu, it's a one day sale event on the K-5 with the Summer Electronics Sales event on eBay. The K-5 can only be bought today only at $799 for the body only.

Yes. The 2 year extension for US customers is $19 from Adorama, Amazon, etc. and PRIC has said that if they are purchased within a month of each other they will be honored.

Kaiserz, I don't know if you could get a extended +2 years manufacturer warranty with this for 20 bucks like you can on BHPhotovideo and Adorama. However there's an option on that K-5 from BeachCamera that allows you to get extended 3 year non-manufacturer warranty for an additional $99 or a extended 3 year non-manufacturer warranty that covers even accidents for $149.

EDIT: Nvm, I guess you can! Thanks Docrwm from above ^^ You might as well get the cheaper warranty for 20 bucks!
