I bought the K3 from quickndone for 599. It came and works perfectly. It was shipped in a box labelled Carman's Photosource (same company as Prodigital2000... or at least all three companies seem to operate out of one location). The k3 is a pretty big step up from the K7 it replaces.

I've purchased from pro digital before. I like them.

Just bought one at $665.00
I just bought the last one for $655! And FREE SHIPPING! HA! I'm stoked! Brand new and USA Warranty for 1 year. Whooo Hoooo! Looks like I've got a K-5 and grip to sell after this

I purchased my K-5 brand new from buydig. My research on popflash shows they are a good retailer. So hoping for a good outcome.

Well you said they rejected your $650 offer so I thought what the heck lets try $655. I was surprised they would take such a low offer. Best of all I get a USA 1 year Pentax warranty. And so do you of course

I gotta wonder just how low retailers will go with this camera. $599 was the lowest I've ever seen, so paying $56 above that is just fine by me. And I don't want to wait another year just to save $100 if it ever does reach the K-5iis price of $496 now.

1-year vs. 2-year guarantee

Is that more tempting to have 1-year US guarantee than 2-year Canadian guarantee?

That seems to be in question by jayman_1975 and Richo. Besides the deal is done in Canada.

These come from an authorized dealer so the 2 Year Canadian warranty is valid. If you ever have an issue you can contact us and we can send the camera into Pentax for you.

Thanks!

This is what they replied with. Not sure what to make of it. I guess as long as they are in business for the next two years and do in fact honor this statement then it shouldn't be a problem. I'm thinkin I wouldn't mind paying and extra $50 or so to have bought from an actual dealer. It's supposed to show up today so I'll check it out and then try to decide what to do

Mine arrived this morning with a shutter count of 1 and a date of 2014/12/10 all looks fine so far. Used my K-5 battery to fire it up. SD card slot 1 was a little stiff but works fine now. Having both cameras side by side, I don't notice size or weight change!
I have gone through the review section for recommended settings to start off. Can't wait to enjoy it more.
Good luck with yours.

I bought mine January 6th. They re-listed again yesterday but sold out again. Looks like you missed it twice. So keep watching that item in your "watch" list and see if they re-list it again.

What most likely happened, was that payment was declined on one or two of the previous units, and they were just re-listed again.
You just happened to reap the rewards. Good for you.

Either way, I'll take your advice and keep watching. Unfortunately, so will others.

Mine showed up a few days ago as brand new. The first shot I took was the first shutter actuation. The camera works perfectly. I am very happy with this copy purchased from quickndone. With the US to CDN dollar conversion plus tax I paid $707 CDN total for this K3 with free shipping. I cant see getting one for cheaper anytime soon. In hindsight I'm glad I jumped on this deal!
