Black K-01 = $449
Posted By: Docrwm, 09-21-2012, 05:41 PM

PENTAX® K-01 Black Digital Camera*|*Quill.com

It is pictured with the 40XS and the description includes it. It's a Body Only price but it appears to include the lens.

I would go by the "In The Box" page; no lens.

Would it still be covered under warranty? Something tells me Quill.com is not an authorized dealer.

Even if it doesn't come with a lens, wouldn't this still be a good deal?

It's a very good price, but not a reputable company according to Reseller Ratings:

We used to deal with Quill all the time at work. We never had any issues. I'm more concerned about the warranty being honored. I also wonder if it would be possible to buy one of those two year extended warranties from BH Photo or Amazon if I bought it from Quill.

Hello David,

Thank you for writing Quill.com.

That camera does come with the lens. Great deal by the way!

We value your business. Thank you for choosing Quill.com.

Sincerely,

I'm now deciding whether to trust Norma and go for it. I would probably just flip the K-01 after playing with it and just keep the lens.

I've bought office supplies form Quill for 20 years, and the fact that I'm still buying from them says it all.

I called as well and was told the same thing. Just ordered myself a K-01. Here's to hoping the warranty is honored by Pentax in case something happens.

it also says "Camera Type: PNS (point and shoot)"

Maybe it's a X90 stuck on 40mm
