I agree with Docrwm about the fluctuating exchange rates, but Paypal should only have charged you once, at the time you confirmed the order. It would have been included in your overall price. Unless you changed the order, Paypal would not have charged you again. I only got charged once, and it was a small fee which I included when I listed the price I paid of $987 and change. Did you change your order?

The price is in Canadian dollars and the exchange rate is probably changing.

I turned over my k-30 with the 18-55 mm kit lens to my friend for $400 this evening. I spent all evening taking photos with my new k-5. it was snowing a bit here (yes...Michigan weather sucks lol :p), and I was able to enjoy the new WR 180135 lens. Can't wait to get the photos into raw editor and into photoshop and see how they look. :cool:

mariopato2010 someone will buy your lens quickly if you post it in the equipment sale part of the forum. There are always people looking for a good deal on that lens. :)

Thanks again Docrwm for finding this awesome deal!

Same here. I do a lot of urban building shots and graffiti shots and I dont want to stop just because it's raining or snowing. I use my wide angle primes when the weather is good, but sometimes, I would like to have a versatile wr zoom that also can handle close focal lengths. the 18-135 totally fits that bill and I am very happy with it.

I agree Docrwm, it's a fantastic deal. The lens is a much better lens than the lenses offered with the Adorama k5 deal in my opinion. It is great if you only want to bring one lens with you when you want to shoot. :)

On another note, I am finding that I like the k5 better than the k30. The menus and buttons are more intuitive, and I really like having the 14bit raw, as I do a lot of design and post processing with my photos. :cool:

They do a fraud check to make sure your paypal address is a confirmed one or your credit card address is confirmed. It takes one day for them to do that. I called them to speed it up and after I called them they shipped immediately.

The kit is really a good deal. I checked the shutter count on my camera and it was literally at 1, so they are brand new kits.

Update: I checked on the extended warranty. Apparently, the regular Pentax warranty in Canada is 2 years. It is honored worldwide though, so...I did not get an extended warranty, but got a regular 2 year warranty since i bought it in Canada.

Thanks Docrwm! :) Even if the extended warranty was a packing error on Henry's part, (who knows, but I am glad the error was in my favor lol :lol:)the deal is still an awesome deal, seeing as with the exchange rate, I only paid 987.44 including shipping. :cool:

The extended warranty was not listed on the website as being included, but it was included on my packing slip and was in with my shipment when the package arrived.:)

I will use the top lcd on the k5, as I do landscape and graffiti/urban bldg shots with tripods a lot. :cool: I will also really like the quieter shutter. I will miss the focus peaking a little bit but I have a k-01 that has that and I also I think that i will use all the bells and whistles on the k5 that the k30 doesn't have and I also think that I will benefit from the sturdier construction of the k5 since I carry my camera with me a lot and it does get banged around a bit.

I cropped, adjusted the curves a tiny bit added a blue filter and then made hdr photorealistic low contrast on photoshop. I was going for a vintage travel postcard look :p

I am going to sell my 2 1/2 month old k30 to my friend for $400, so I just bought this deal. I decided that the k5 even though it is older technology, will suit more of my needs for the next year or so and my lenses that I bought for the k30 will work with it so its a no brainer at this price.

With todays exchange rate it came to $987.44 including shipping! I need this zoom so for me, this was a deal I could not pass up. I think I am probably a k30 owner with one of the shortest careers of owning a k30 :p:D. My friend is excited to get the k30, and I am getting a lens I need, and a camera that will be easier to use with my tripod and will give me slightly better raw files. :cool:

FAB is a members only design flash sale website. You have to join to buy there. Joining is free. I do shop there for home design stuff. :cool:

That being said, the deal for this camera is not a good deal in my opinion. As others have said the case will not fit any other lenses. Also, I think the case is overpriced.

I got my white K-01 kit with the 40 mm XS lens at B&H photo for $379 a couple of weeks ago and I think they still have some in stock. :) It shipped immediately, was a good price, and I have been using it non-stop since i got it.

I bought this same kit from B&H and I love it. The lens is great on my k30 or the k-01 and the white body is really cool looking and feels good to hold when taking pics. I have been taking it out more than the k-30 this week. :cool:

Repositioned surfer, added hdr local adaptation, changed hue and brightness and curves a bit, put a film grain on, then added poster edges to give it that japanese block print look.

Its rugged and grooved, and is a creamy white, not a pure white. I don't think dirt will be an issue.

I loved buying mine from B&H. The white one is really awesome looking and I got it in two days. It's my backup camera to my k30 and I bought it for the lens, but I like it and was pleasantly surprised when I shot my first couple of test shots with it. It feels good in the hands and I love the looks.

Well at least I am not as jealous of the price as I was when you posted it earlier at $169 CDN :D But that is still a very very good price.

Thanks Adam :). I can't like your post, apparently I have disproportionately liked your posts relative to other posters on the forum, but that is a topic that is still being discussed in another thread I believe. :p

I love my k30, but wanted to make sure I was not missing out on anything in the k-5 before they are all sold out.

I debated a k30 vs k5 for awhile before I bought the k30, but at this price, I am willing to get a k5 body only and sell my k-01 body that I bought to get the 40mm pancake lens. Is the color rendition better on a k-5 than a k-30?
