I wonder what "unboxed" really means.

I think they procure Body+lens kits from Pentax at a lower cost than the individual items, then separate the two and sell them individually. Since the kit comes in one box the individual camera and lens are therefore 'unboxed'.

Means the camera came as a kit, but the kit lens (most likely a 40XR) is taken out, so you'd only get a camera w/ in a kit box, but no kit lens in there

$410USD is probably as low as you can find for this camera nowadays ...

i wonder how that pentax Singapore site is able to sell all these and other pentax gear so cheap. Prices are cheaper than any other store or even some used items for sale here.

The unboxed 18-135 is $345AUD! (add 3% for USD)

Amazing!

I guess they are trying to gain some market share now, so the profit might be pretty low at the current price level. Eventually the prices might go up a bit (as what we've seen for the 18-135 lens price). So if you think the deals are good, better just grab them now I got my K30 during the launch week, it's $50 cheaper than the current price (which is still pretty good).
