Aww, man, that seemed sooo good.

But I see that it's available from Amazon for 399, which also seems a very good price.

Yep, it's a pity. That would have been an extra sale for Pentax as I wasn't especially looking.
Keeping my powder dry now for the D FA 70-200 F4. Just get it out there Pentax

I would call amazon for the inconvenience. At least the US one will give you like a giftcard or something for canceled orders assuming it was through them.

That's a sound idea so I contacted them to complain, as this was bait advertising which is illegal here.

They accepted the order and gave a delivery date which is a contract then cancelled.

I got two nonsense replies and then clicked on the 'Did this resolve your problem?' box and restated my case. Heard nothing more since. What a shower.

You have to call if you want any results.

Make sure if you think that they're not going to help to ask if you can talk to a manager. Be polite but firm and they'll probably compensate.

K-70 in Bristol Cameras is 369 with a free case, 16GB SD card, spare battery and screen protector.

That is where I bought mine and the freebies are good brand name accessories, Hama case, Hahnell battery, I didn't use the memory card, sold it.

Official Pentax dealers so 2 year warranty, good customer service too, good to phone up (remember phoning eh?)

I prefer to support independent camera shops and not give more money to corporate monsters!

What? When? How? I've never seen it quite this cheap. At this sort of price, it's a far more tempting proposition to off the K-S2 and upgrade...

It was that price last week when I posted, now up to 499, you have to strike while the iron is hot.

Bristol cameras don't appear on price comparison sites, google etc. They do great deals several times a year.

Had I know, I might've! Thanks for the pointer - I tend to check LCE Group for used lenses, and do the occasional eBay search, but Bristol Cameras have whizzed past me! I might get in touch with them and see what the cause of the price drop was. Thanks again for this.

Yip, I got mine there with all the freebies before Christmas for 379, great camera it is, I upgraded from a K-30 which was great but the K-70 is another step-up, especially the flippy screen.

DrawsACircle I got that beat, Bristol Cameras are doing the K-70 for 399 plus the freebies I mentioned before, OK it was cheaper when I first posted but still a great deal.
