So originally it was 1796. Then it went up to 1946 (up by $150).
Now $100 GC from BH Adorama and $100 less from other folks on Amazon that arent offering a $100 GC which effectively means it is at 1846 (up by $50).
If you buy a lens with it lets say D-FA 70-200 then K-1+Lens is $150 less + $100 GC.
Originally both K-1 and this lens were at $1796 so it would have been $3592. Now with $100 GC and $150 combo discount it will be $3492. So if you buy more you are getting a cheaper deal from the original price. Still not better as this lens was marked down by $100 at some point so the original price of K-1 and that marked down price of this lens is what it equates to currently. I really hope it gets better than this on BF.

I'm not holding my breath for much more than another maybe $250 drop, max. I simply don't see it needing to go to $1500.

K3-II might drop a little to get the stocks out, but that's about all I can forsee from here, the k1 is still too new IMO.

Not bad! People have paid $1949 for this thing, so I'd take it at $1849 TBH.

I'll wait and see if steeper discounts happen after black friday. Frequently steeper discounts happen during the week b4 Christmas. There are also steep discounts sometimes available after Christmas.

Just because they overpaid doesn't mean we all should.

I think we're still underpaying at the full price Nikon wants $500 more for their D810, even at the new sale price, despite being 2 years older.

Nikonians also overpay, but by at least 500 more for their brick.

Currencies!

Dollar buys more Yen than last August, when the price went up, but not as many as last April. K-1 is cheaper than summer but still more expensive than spring.

A little bit! But I've barely used my D810 since the K-1 came out. As long as you have a DC lens you're in pretty good shape.
