Not sure if this belongs in the Price Watch forum or here, so mods feel free to move it if I misplaced it.

B&H will be able to do a lot better than that on the K-5 IIs this weekend

Those Ricoh deals uses the infamous Pentaxwebstore, with its notorious pricing mistakes and order cancellations.

One SNAFU, albeit a pretty big one, does not a reputation make. Or at least logic says it shouldn't.

And I'm more than confident that there won't be a repeat offense, especially with something this deliberate

First impressions are lasting ones, as they say..

Absolutely. I would have liked to hold an upper management position because I would have honored every purchase and made a few heads roll for the abysmal customer service. I agree with you entirely that they have work to do to overcome that.

That aside, I stand by my previous post. In more candid terms, I despise hyperbole. Being less emotional and sensational and exercising even just a bit of logical thought would go a long ways around here.

Don't forget their abysmal stock policy. Here is a member that appears to still be waiting for his delivery of a Pentax K-3 from the Pentaxwebstore.

I now have a little voice in my head singing "on the seventh day of Christmas, Ricoh gave to me... a Theta with video in HD!"

They usually kick it off at midnight, but I can't remember when they started last year. Thursday would make more sense for B&H, since they stop taking even electronic orders at sundown on Fridays.

I just spoke with them, they said either Wednesday around midnight or Thursday. Our homepage post will go live at the same time as the B&H deals, so stay tuned for that!

BTW, here's a nice K-5 IIs deal ($849):
