I bit on this as well with the 18-135. This is my pattern to wait for the bargain when the new model comes out. If it does not have the focus problems of its predecessor, this will be more than worth it.

I'm now kind of wishing I had gotten the 18-135 kit. My daughter would probably find that perfect to keep on the K-x for Disney.

I went ahead and bought the body and will have to hope that I can find an 18-135 at a reasonable price somewhere. Not sure if I will get support credit or not as I originally used the PF link but in the process of comparing had an unbelievable number of tabs open at once, so who knows where I actually ended up.

Sure hope it's the step up from my Kx that I anticipate.

I would keep your eyes peeled on the marketplace here for 18-135mm WR lenses. I bet some people bought the kits with the intent of selling the lens to turn a little profit (I mean for $200 extra, $100 profit is realistic).

I was going to refer back to this post on another thread for someone but noticed that it is now discontinued. B&H most have sold out of all the body only K-5ii's. They still have the K-5ii with 18-55 WR for $699.

They offer SquareTrade warranties when you are checking out at B&H... I think that is all they do.
Squaretrade emailed me 3 codes for 40 % off- pm me if anyone wants one of them
It expires today [they emailed them today]


edit - all spoken for at the moment!

I can't believe the K-5 II sold out- but this means that thanks to this sale, there are hundreds of new Pentax users out there. I think only a fraction of these went to our members, as even alongside the D7000 for $699 the K-5 II for $599 was a steal.

In any case, the 18-55mm WR kit is still available at an amazing price of $699:

I'm glad I pounced on one early on! Can't wait until my K-5ii arrives. Don't worry K-30 it was nothing personal

I am among the ones who are coming back to PENTAX after earlier brief affairs. Earlier while I really liked PENTAX I was worried about its longevity
But with PENTAX being in good hands ala Ricoh which some of pentax fan seem to hate, I feel safe enough to put my $ in.

Anyone who ordered Thursday for international shipment get a shipment notice yet? Mine is still pending/ "Being prepared for shipping".
Picked one up to replace my K7. With our first child on the way, wanted a low light and AF upgrade

I got in on the body-only deal; I was gonna think about it for a day or two but now I'm so glad I just went ahead and bought it. I think I may have even found a buyer for my K-x!

Ordered early Thursday morning, shipping to Ottawa (ON, Canada), got the notification yesterday. Tracking number still not in the Purolator system though.

I am in a similar situation. I had a samsung gx10 (k10d) and for some reason switched to Canon. Had a 40d for a brief while but sold it.
I recently got a Ricoh GR and loved it so much I jumped back on board with the 5II because of this sale. LBA to soon follow I am sure.

it was only up to 40 usd off using the 40% off codes and that meant the price for the ST warranty is quite a bit less in price at BH on checkout than using the coupon directly with ST after the fact. But better than nothing if you missed the offer on checkout and wanted this sort of warranty!
