There will be some, but you'll have to wait and see.

In the mean time, I'm going to see if they can't re-enable online ordering for the IIs. Obviously they don't want to part with too many at the lower price

I'm quite impressed with B&H. Here it is 2 days after Black Friday, and they are still trying to honor the special Black Friday price.

I'm not sure I understand those who come here wondering about the price today - Black Friday was 11/23/12.

B&H is an amazing retailer. Normally the best price doesn't come with good service. B&H is in a class of its own.

True - it does seem this year it has all blended together from Friday through Monday at a lot of vendors.

You can now once again order the K-5 IIs online. The price remains at $1049!

Sadly, I won't be joining your IIs club. My budget was tighter than I thought so I couldn't get an IIs and a 18-135WR which would be $1500 total, so I instead cancelled my order and got the K-5 II with the 18-135WR kit for $1350. I guess that means some other people will receive their IIs faster.

I'm not sold on the whole idea of no low pass filter. In a lot of real world shoots that have nothing to do with camera reviews and pushing the latest and greatest gear, the K5IIs still is unpredictable when it comes to moiré. I just went with a K5II body and the Epson R2880 deal at B&H. My original K5 went to a real estate agent who is a long time friend and wanted a good camera.

If you haven't seen Adorama, they do have the original K5 for around $700
