It looks like it has returned to the original price already. B&H had it at 987 for awhile this morning too but it is also back at 1098.

Amazon has it for $979 currently as well, with free 2-day shipping for Prime members.

I like to buy camera gear thru Amazon because if there is ever a problem, they tend to replace it overnight instead of waiting for the defective gear to be returned first.

The K-3 ii is also available from PopFlash Photo (a Ricoh authorized online reseller) for $996. May work better for NY state residents (B&H and Adorama must charge sales tax).

Please remember just because you're buying on the Amazon website doesn't mean you'll get the same shipping service from 3rd party vendors on there... I suspect they have to be fulfilled by Amazon to qualify.

I also believe that while Amazon themselves are am authorized reseller, if you buy through them from a marketplace vendor, the Pentax/Ricoh warranty will not apply.

all of the listed partners indicate they honor free 2nd day prime shipping in this case.

not sure why you would think that, but you are quite incorrect.

"Product Warranty: All our products are brand new and warrantied by the respective manufacturers, unless specifically stated otherwise on the specific product. All Manufacturer Warranties are subject to the conditions set forth by the respective manufacturers. "

Gadgetcircuit.com does not have any ratings on resellerratings.com; so I'm extremely hesitant to buy. The layout of their website hints at being one of the stereotypical "Brooklyn scam group" sites, unfortunately. But the review site that did have 250+ ratings for them, did have positive things to say. Anybody here bought Pentax gear from them in the past?

Either way, I'm gonna click buy on one of these sites!

I was just going by the wording in the authorized dealer list on the Ricoh imaging website:
http://www.us.ricoh-imaging.com/files/support/Authorized_Dealer_List_10-29-14.pdf
"The purchase of Ricoh Imaging products through UNAUTHORIZED retailers my exclude you from warranty service and support.
While Amazon is an authorized online dealer of Ricoh Imaging product, many resellers who sell through Amazon are not. When purchasing, it is important to note where the product is being “shipped from and sold by,” which is stated in the header for each product on Amazon.com."

we aren't talking about unauthorized (ie black or grey market) dealers here. I think consumers are smart enough to know what they are buying and you may rest assured that a purchase via Amazon of the camera for $979 or $969 via an authorized dealer is quite possible. BTW, even Bolton's and Focus Camera(listed on amazon) are on the Pentax authorized retailers list, as is amazon.
