Price was $796, but it is $496 as of now....
It is the APS-C Ricoh GR, right?

Just spoke with B&H. This deal is not a typo, but it won't last

K-5 IIs image quality in your pocket for just $496? Now that's a steal.

I've never done much research on this cam - are you saying this is the same sensor as the K-5IIs without the AA filter?

Edit to add: just clicked on the link and I get $796.95........oh well........

And it looks like the price has gone back up again (except on the accessory pack: Ricoh GR Digital Camera Deluxe Accessory Kit B&H Photo Video).

Congrats to those who managed to secure the steal!

Yes, it's the same sensor. Better image quality than the K-5 IIs + 18-135mm @ 18mm because the GR's lens is very sharp.

Here's our review of it:
