K-01 with 40mm: $358 (last stock)
Posted By: Adam, 02-28-2013, 09:18 AM

Don't forget that the K-01 + 40mm kit can be your for just $358 from B&H, while supplies last. If you look at the price of the lens, you're basically getting the camera for $100, so why wouldn't you?

So very hard to resist, but I can't come home with this when we still haven't bought a dishwasher for the new place. Imagine explaining that to the wife.

I've tried to convince several people who are "looking" to pick one of these up, but nobody seems interested. I can't fathom why, at this price.

The black model with the 40mm lens is also availiable on Amazon here
Particular good for overseas people because shipping cheaper. Althoughh.. 2-3 months delivery time because it's on backorder...

I jumped to buy one when it was discontinued

Funnily enough, all the prices for the k-01 (body only) on eBay jumped from $300 to $400 overnight... I wonder why that is...

It looks like mine is set to ship tomorrow. I was going to pass on the lens. The 21/3.2 is more my range for a small walkabout and I have one already. Then I looked up what I could get for the 40mm XS and realized that I couldn't really lose -- either I'll love it or I'll sell it and make myself a few dollars.

I bought the yellow K-01 without a lens from B&H Photo on Tuesday (don't need the lens) and it was shipped yesterday. I have the white one already, and decided to get a brother for it before they were no longer available. It's an amazing camera for under $300. If you don't already have a 40mm lens (I already have the DA 40 limited) you can't beat the $358 price for the kit. Personally, I'd be leery about ordering the camera from Amazon if it's on backorder. Since the camera is discontinued, I'd much rather place an order with B&H or Adorama where it is in stock. Just the way I feel about it. What guarantee is there that any place showing it as discontinued will really get any more stock?

This is exactly what I was thinking. Maybe they know they have another batch coming, but I wouldn't trust Amazon stock to be that closely managed. That's probably a line that doesn't go anywhere.

The black is sold out. Only the, slightly more expensive, white remains. $379.00. I was able to convince one friend to buy the black on Friday. So I'll get to play with one for a bit. It's a real shame I had to pass.

Bought the black kit from Adorama today just before noon PST as B&H was sold out.
Did go through the affiliate link of this forum.
