I managed to snag one! (At least I received a confirmation notice). I was also able to pick up a DA 50mm 1.8 for $116! Sweet deal indeed!

Got one Sunday as well. K5 ii + 50 mm 1.8 lens. $766 no tax free shipping. They seem to periodically get 1 or 2 in at a time. Can't figure out why that happens but I'm glad I lucked out

I saw a II body for $599 on the Global Auction Site a few days ago from a remorseful Black Friday buyer, so that's a place to watch now & then..

empty barrel now... be nice if one could put in a wish list for b+h if they get additional inventory.. otherwise it's like a bloody game show...
had a dialogue with b+h...this is what they say..
Jirel M: I just spoke to the buyer & he informed me that the K5 ii is discontinued & we will not be getting anymore.
and
Jirel M: Unfortunately, it will not be available from B&H any further

K-5 ii is back in stock at B&H as of 10am this morning, and there still kicking in deals on select glass. It seems to go from "in stock" to "discontinued" and back again quite often. Definitely worth keeping an eye on, if you're in the market. Mine is out for delivery right now, I can't wait!

Maybe some people cancel their orders, keep cameras in their shopping carts for a while, etc.

after 'they' told me yesterday they were'nt getting any more inventory...
lo and behold... more in stock at $649.00.... decided to pull that trigger... and added the extended warranty....
already have the k-5, but looking forward to the improvements in focus and low light performance which had been
an issue... and for this price... quite satisfied...

Well they're trickling in from somewhere. Quite possibly overstock at other dealers that the buyer finds and bids on.

I know the owner of a Honda dealership who "helps out" other dealers that way - 50 Civics or 400 Accords (from Marysville) at a time.
