The $599 price ends Jan. 7. So tempted.
Or till they're gone?

Can you do advance search on ebay on seller "quickndone"?
I suspect that you have inadvertently set some filters on your browser; perhaps, try another browser.
I can find the seller, click on it, but it won't let me see all the item for sale haha... so weird (it just return an error message if I try to click on "show all items for sale".)

Wasn't working with the US proxy either using 2 different web browser. Really weird.

Send them an email to see if they would allow you to purchase (don't know if it is provincial thing, not sure though).

It could be. I managed to access their store page, could see all the products (including that specific K-3 offer), but I can't access the description page for any of their item for sale. Doesn't really matter anyway. I won't purchase a K-3 before a couple of months, when Pentax announces their FF camera and the market gets flooded with cheap K-3 just for me

Thanks for your help.

If you order from Quickndone or Prodigital2000 you will not have to pay custom charges to the U.S.. I have ordered lenses from both companies and had no problems.

I just purchased the K-3 from Quickndone on ebay.ca. Total price with tax (13%) and paypal's USD - CAD conversion came to CAD $810.00. Way better than what I could have got it at thecamerastore.com (was $899.00 now back up to $1,063.87) and Vistek.ca ($1,135.00).

Wow, new low for the K-3! $599 is amazing. I bought one from this very Ebay seller around Black Friday for $620. Brand new, shutter count 1 on the first frame, FW 1.11, manufactured 5 weeks before it was in my hands. Very satisfied. YMMV. BTW, for Canadians, best to go directly to the listing on ebay.ca.

Does the price drop on cameras always occur this quickly? I bought my K3 around May with the kit lens and I believe I paid around $1300 USD on Amazon. With this kind of price drop it seems like a slap to people that bought earlier. An expensive lesson for a newbie. Do the other makers do the same?

Cycles vary but - yes, all cameras drop. Some more than others but they all tend to hit lows around Thanksgiving, particularly if the product is 1+ years old.

yes, unfortunately, it is the nature of the beast.

Locally, a manurfaturer of a completely different product did the opposite. They kept their prices for a redundant product at full retail through to the day it was replaced by the superior version. The consumer backlash was significant.

The best way to deal with these inevitable product replacement issues is to eventually discount the outgoing one (to clear inventory) to make way for the new. Either that or the company foes out of business .....

The company knows that there will always be vultures scalping the carcass of a dying product line to help them transition to the new.

There should be no Duty to pay in US. (I used an online duty calc. to assess this) They come with a 1 year Pentax international warranty for repairs. Just hit the button for mine
They also have the grip for $110 should you want to add that!
Anyone want an unblemished K5 with 7.5K shutter clicks and OEM grip????
