Here's a real deal, A brand-new KX camera (body only) for...$8,420.03.
Yep, you read it right, eight thousand four hundred and twenty bucks and three cents.
Pentax K-r (Black) 12.4 MP 3.0" LCD Digital SLR Camera 027075175280 | eBay
Which includes free shipping, by the way.
The seller, BigValueInc, provides a stock photo and the standard Pentax blurb/specs, but precious little else to explain why this particular KX is worth about $7,500 to $8,000 MORE than any other KX on the market.
Even if it's a one-period typo, that still means it's $842.03, slightly more than the KX sold for new IIRC.

Technically, the KX was a film body and the K-x was the digital body.

It seems to me its a K-r. What really worries me is that it says 4 sold.. I hope people didn't actually buy it for that much money.

I live an hour from Somerset, NJ. Maybe they'll knock $100 off if I pick it up!

It's what I've been saying to people that are holding off on buying a new K-5 - once the replacement is out there the price goes up on the discontinued model. Hurry, run, whatever it takes - if you want a new K-5 then get it now before it goes up to it's post-production price too!

You're both right, my bad. I did get the price right, though. My jaw just about dropped when I saw the price. Nobody wrote the seller and questioned it or so it seems.
It'll be interesting to see if it's re-listed at a more reasonable price.
