Man...this is tempting....but I just ordered the $199 Q of the Groupon deal. If that ordered gets cancelled, (it may, because I'm in Canada) then I'm going to order this. Just an FYI for Canadians, you can order this from Amazon.com. They ship to Canada, and included an "Import Fees Deposit" that covers all brokerage/tax charges. If the actual brokerage charges come in below their estimate, they refund the difference back as well. Landed costs for me in Ontario is $377.09US Still a pretty good price.

Items: $314.95
Shipping & Handling: $19.93
Total before tax: $334.88
Estimated tax to be collected: $0.00
Import Fees Deposit $42.21
Order Total: $377.09

I agree absolutely... this is even less than the price before tax from BH photos.

The groupon deal for Q was really good too; except that I already have the 01 lens, otherwise, I would have grab that also.

Doh! I can't believe I did it....but I ordered it. I'm not confident the Q is going to ship....and if it does, I will likely still be able to cancel this order. After further thought, I could see myself keeping the K-01 as a backup someday if Pentax does finally put out that FF. Can let go of the K-5 then. I'm such a sucker for a good deal. Our Canon video camera gave up the ghost....perhaps I can convince the wife this is a good replacement.

I ended up ordering the K-01 + 40mm kit locally in Toronto (Henrys) for $360. Shipping was free.

Henry's was doing a brisk trade in these, because a couple of days ago they had every colour for that price, plus body-only for $319. Last night when I ordered they were down to two colours, kits only, and the number of units available was dropping by the hour. I finally clicked when they were down to the last three black body kits. I got confirmation of shipping today.

Wow, never even thought to check Henry's. Just got off the phone with them, and every single unit they had in stock both at their warehouse and store locations is gone. Missed the boat. They have 1 unit on hold for someone....if that falls thru, that it'll be held for me. Amazon is still cheaper by $40, but I'm not confident that Amazon will get enough units to fill all these orders. Henry's will be a backup plan....should have jumped on this earlier.

B&H down to $399 with 40mm. Amazon has yet to give me a ship date for a 12/29 order.
What are your thoughts on the two lens -18-55mm & 50-200mm- kit for $519?

Came to US 334.90 shipped to Oz. Ordered one no idea when it will be shipped to Oz or if it will ever be. If I do get out, my mirrorless situation is a shambles, as I already have both a Nex 5n and a Q. Still this is a great deal if only for the lens, which I always wanted and the spare battery and charger for my K5; I'll consider the K-01 to be a fancy rear lens cap for the 40mm lens.

I look at the brighter side of things in general; if I get it I am happy, if I don't I am not upset either, there will always be deals that come along. The Henrys deal is good too, however, with Henrys online orders... you may be getting a demo version or customer return-version (as in the case of my Q) - I am not saying that it is always the case, but there is a chance and it is the nature of business since you are getting a discount. On the other hand, there is no guarantee that Amazon will ship a 'brand new' one as well. Either way, it is certainly a good deal for those who has a need for now. Don't forget the extra year of warranty in Canada vs the one from Amazon.com.

why not order from amazon? you can save like $40 on the spot shipped, and it's in yellow!

Canada is a lot closer to the US than Oz, I pay $377 included delivery... ?! something is not right - probably the most heavily taxed country among the industrial nations.. sigh.
