Emmy Photo is a good vendor - the <$1K price has been met...... You can get free shipping without Prime also.

I actually bought mine April 30th from Emmy Photo on Amazon. I was bonking my head on the wall when I realized that Emmy Photos price + the warranty was equal to BH new rebated price + their warranty.

Plus I got prime shipping so not too snazzy.

But Adorama is still $996 (as long as you are gonna buy something else from them in the future, what are the odds , then the $100 gift certificate effectively reduces the $1096 by $100).

The original link was from Emmy Photo - now they aren't even in the list. Must have sold out of what they had this morning at $999.

Typical of Amazon pricing - it is now Friday afternoon and I bet the price stays up over the weekend.

Adorama sends an electronic Gift Card code for $100 when you buy a K-5IIs for $1096 thereby reducing the cost to $996 from a known seller and an online AD for Pentax.

I managed to catch one of the elusive Emmy Photo deals while it was $999 and fulfilled by Amazon, so I got Prime shipping. Everything was kosher - US warranty, shutter count of 0, and all accessories included.

Can't wait for the weekend so I can start shooting with it for real!

$1,009.00

You gotta jump on Amazon deals quick. A few bites at the low price and they bump it up ~10%.

Yeah they do that a lot... but it still in there:

Big Value Inc $987
Electronic Basket $1006 (K-30 reviews mention this seller sending him grey market one, I would avoid them)
Emmy Photo $1009

Why? Seriously, why would you deal with Gray Market when you can have one from Adorama for $996 once you count in the $100 Gift Certificate? I boggles my mind.
