I love my K01 in black but, Oh, how I'd love to go down the yellow brick road!

At these prices the temptation is tremendous.

Or, also at B&H, $369 for the kit with 40mm XS (white, yellow or black, though only white is showing as currently in stock). Almost as good as the crazy Amazon deal... [EDIT: I see someone also mentioned this deal in another thread here...]

It's an absolute steal at that price. (Not that I feel really bad about having paid $316 for one in November.) I debated whether or not to order the yellow at this price (I have the white now) but I already have two q's (one white, one black - one with the prime, one with the 02 zoom) so I think I should hold off on any more dupe camera bodies.

But it is tempting....

What I really need (OK, want) is the DA 70mm limited to go along with the 21 & 40 limiteds I have. I think that will round out my K-01 kit.

Pentax k-01 white body is marked as discontinued in b&h. I am almost certain that pentax is going bring newer version in CP+.

The K-01 is out of production and there will be no replacement for now. I haven't confirmed this 100% but I will have a definitive answer for you by tomorrow. The K-01 is not on display at CP+ and a rep said that it was no longer being made.

So, if you guys want one, it's now or never because it's not coming back!

Adam, do you think our back-orders from Amazon will be filled, based on this info?

I just called B&H. All with lens on back or shipping in 7-10 days, may not even be able to get one with lens. Now need to decide whether to get body only. . . but dang, want that yellow with the 40. . .

Seems the stock is really running dry if the kits with a lens are iffy. Better to get on this now and find an XS lens later - or a DA40 Limited

I sold my 40mm XS and got the DA 35mm f2.4
It gets really great reviews in the database and just $220 new, or less in the Marketplace
