There will be a two hour window to get this for $229. Adorama sells through the Rakuten marketplace. From 12pm-2pm Pacific there will be a $20 off $50 Rakuten marketplace coupon. That coupon code is IWANT20. So it should be $229.

Rakuten.com - Pentax k-01 16.3 Megapixel Mirrorless Camera (Body Only) - Black - 3" LCD - Optical (IS) - 4928 x 3264 Image - 1280 x 720 Video - HDMI - HD Movie Mode

Also, you can try to shave another 5% off through cashback.

Rakuten cashback - Up to 5.0%. Compare cashback rates.

That would make it $219.

Now that's tempting! Since it's through Adorama through Rakuten is there anyway to use any affiliate links so that this site gets a kickback or is that only on Adorama directly?

Just use the links in the first post of this thread Don't think we get any credit from those third-party sites.

I want to live in the US, here in France the brick still costs 400€ and you still find offers at 800€...
I for my K-01 in France for the same price as our friends on the other side of the pond get theirs - and this simply by monitoring amazon.de's price evolution and hit "buy" at the right time.

That's probably what I'd recommend (other than getting it shipped from B&H to,a friend in the US and visit him on your next vacation....)

Well I caved and got a yellow one. Don't really have a need for a K-5 and a K-01 but hey why not, life is short. Maybe I'll do some wide angle and narrow angle simultaneous astrophotography.

Looks like it's time to welcome a bunch of new K-01 users I bet this deal will be sold out by the end of tomorrow!

My yellow K-01 gets dirty too easily but at these prices I could get a black one and keep the yellow to gawk at,

Or I could get another yellow one to gawk at ,

The firmware revisions have helped the focusing issues immensely. I find I take the K-5 and the K-01 and use them as complementary companions.

I ordered mine yesterday (black), and it's already on the way. I have a K-X and a Q. Can't wait to try the K-01.

Be curious to see if the Pentax revives the line with updates and better price point. Also, see how many have sold since the price has dropped and discontinued. I can see the K-01 having a large cult following. :-)

Black ones are sold out and the White ones with the DA40xs went up to $500, but this time they are bundled with the "designer" sheep skin pouch.

I feel sorry for Adorama. I wonder how many of those $300 Leather pouches they have sitting around - I'd venture that its 100% of what they ordered initially or 100% - 1.
