You can get the K-30 body only from Amazon for $445.19.

Amazon.com: Pentax K-30 Weather-Sealed 16 MP CMOS Digital SLR (Black, Body Only): Camera & Photo

If I had to do it over again I would probably buy the K-30 body and then get the 18-135mm WR lens. I bought the K-30 w/ 18-55mm WR from Hunt's for the $499.95 but I want to get the 18-135mm lens anyway and i'd be lucky to sell this 18-55mm lens for $70 on here, so buying them separately is essentially the same price.

18-135mm WR Lens: Pentax SMC Da 18 135mm F 3 5 5 6 Ed Al If DC WR Lens UV Cleaning Kit 002707517376 | eBay
$393.66

So $838.85 for the K-30 w/ 18-135mm WR is a better deal IMO than the K-30 + 18-55mm for $500.
I noticed the price on Amazon, and the K-30 body only can be had for $450 in Canada too.

I'll either grab the K-30 body for $450 or perhaps buy the K-50 body only bundle from Adorama and then sell the $200 gift card for $180, effectively making the K-50 body only + 32gb SD card + bag + 2 years extended warranty cost $517, which is a good price, I think, from my limited/no experience buying cameras.

Btw, if you ever feel like shipping the 18-55mm to Canada for $70 or so, I wouldn't refuse.

Nice try!

I'll do $100 + shipping though
