Sorry, but we have to take two points off your man card for shopping this early.

Thanks for the information, great price from an authorized Pentax dealer. Just placed my order and waiting for Samy's to process. Rebate is instant with free ground shipping available. PayPal is holding funds until order is processed, so I hope all goes well.

Their web site still shows only 4 left in stock. Not many to support a front page ad, and at least 2 forum members have already placed orders.

Well, if it ships, great, if not, I find the wife a different gift. She's easy to please; she married me.

Samy's web site now shows only 3 left in stock, and your order was placed before mine. My PayPal payment has gone through, so I'm encouraged. It looks like you may not need to search for another Christmas present but I may have to explain why UPS is delivering another box!

Well, it's not like the K-S1 was a much beloved camera model. I got the distinct impression it was made for the Hello Kitty market - which is great for what it is - but not for serious Pentaxians. My wife is neither a Hello Kitty fan nor a Pentaxian but she appreciates good bargains like a hound dog appreciates a pile of something stinky to roll in.

Have to wonder if this is the first flicker of a fire sale, at least here in the USA.

although the fact that they're willing to sell this so low is encouraging as other retailers may clear out stock this fall, especially on Black Friday.

Web site now has "Add to Cart" and "Email Me When Available" buttons, as well as saying "usually ships in 3-5 business days".
