Good deal but if you get the MX-1 (in silver) from Adorama via this link below also for $229, you can get free shipping and possibly save on sales tax depending on where you live.

I've been going back and forth on getting a MX-1, and sort of set a mental "buy" reminder if and when the priced dropped to $199. Now that it has, I am re-evaluating my desire to buy it. While it gets generally good reviews from both users and professional review sites, I'm not sure how this fits in my camera bag. My Canon S95 is an excellent compact camera with a 1/1.7" sensor, although it's aperture range is definitely eclipsed by the MX-1. I am intrigued by the articulating screen on the MX-1 but the size and heft of the camera is a bit of a turn-off. I also have a K-01 and a K-50, so I'm not sure when I would find use for the MX-1 if I can't easily tuck it into my pants pocket the way I can my Canon S95, or even my iPhone, for that matter...

Ah, the curse of CBA... makes me want to buy equipment even when I don't really need it!

I'm fighting the same urge, even though I recently picked up a Fuji XF1 and love it, but.............

Can't figure Ricoh/Pentax out.
They come out with kind of pricey cameras, and within a year or so have fire sales on them.
It pays to wait that is for sure.

although it seems like the fire sales are only on the models that were overpriced and likely not big sellers anyway. Example: K-01, Q, and now MX-1. Although they also seem to do a good job of providing big discounts on popular models that are being discontinued and replaced by a new model, such as the $599 K-5 II sale over black friday.
