Pentax K-30 for $660-700 New
Posted By: ChrisTrevino, 09-19-2012, 07:42 AM

I've had no experience with the seller Electronics Basket but at over $100 cheaper than BH/Ado I'm definitely tempted to try them out.
Two other sellers with decent rating as well listed in there.

Amazon.com: Pentax K-30 Weather-Sealed 16 MP CMOS Digital SLR (Black, Body Only): Camera & Photo

Thoughts?

I decided to take the plunge with a $640 K-30 from one of the resellers at Amazon a couple of weeks ago. I figured why not, as I was considering one of the $670 K-30's from Singapore anyways and Amazon has a decent handle on their resellers.

I contacted Electronics basket (via Amazon) and they responded promptly, but by the time I decided to buy for $640, they had jacked up their prices to $741.

Luckily, this other company Sunset Electronics had about 20 of the cameras available for the same price (at the time, I think they sold out last weekend). I placed my order through them. It came in the mail last week. The box was slightly crushed when I got it. (Not the packing box, but the Pentax box). The box was for the kit with 18-55 lens, but with the lens removed. Everything else was there. The camera works great. I'm really impressed with the K-30. The EXIF showed the camera was brand new. I took the first shuttercount shot. So all is well.

It was gray market, but for $160 less than an authorized dealer, I thought it was worth it. So far no problems....

That was my experience, hope it helps.
Oh, you were lucky!
I noticed that low price from Sunset Electronics too, but it was shown that the items were sold out in few days.
I have never known I should have tried to contact the seller to confirm the stocks.

Hopefully there is a big price drop very soon, especially near to the Christmas season.

Just found this while looking for the cheapest price for the K-30: ajrichies Pentax K-30 for $599 (Body only)
Run away as fast as you can they are scammers. Search for ajrichards as well it's the same clowns.

I went into B&H in NYC today to pickup a flash and some lighting...long story short they have the Black 18/55 kit for $744, the Blue for $811 and the White for $846, so their pricing in store is all over the place. I know their site doesn't reflect these prices, but if you can get to the store, or can call and request them to match their own price, might be worth it to go through them.

Unfortunately I don't, I was just glancing at them and saw the prices but didn't see the body only price listed and didn't ask anyone.

wondering when they will sell it under $700, as some sellers with 99% positive feedback at Amazon have already asked lower than that.
