Pentax K5II $798 @ Amazon
Posted By: krebsy75, 06-05-2013, 09:08 AM Pentax K-5 II 16.3 MP DSLR Body Only (Black): Camera & Photo

I popped on one yesterday. Should be here tomorrow. Slightly concerned about the reseller. It's fulfilled by Amazon and their return policy applies. So.... hopefully it will be fine.

Whatever happenend with this? Did it arrive, any issues with the seller? There are still a couple of great deals listed for under 800 bucks on amazon. Wondering if I should pull the trigger too. My k-r is having shutter issues (double firing, getting locked open, etc.. and I think it may not be worth it to get it fixed.

I just recently bought a K-5 II new on Amazon for about $760. It was just the body in the box that was the body & 18-55 kit (minus the lens). It was perfectly packed, brand new, w/ no clicks on the shutter. No problems with it so far.

Mine came in a K5II 18-135mm kit box. The 18-135mm was missing.

The cam and related accessories appeared brand new and untouched.

This is crazy. The last time the K-5 was at this price the K-5ii had already come out... Something new must be coming soon

I just bit the bullet for $766.68. We'll see when it shows next week.

It dropped this low a couple time this week.
