I didn't know the street prices for K5 have dropped over $100 in the past week! A friend of mine asked me to inquiry about the local prices, so I called OP, SLRR and Gizmobuy.com, all quoted me around $1500, all w/ GST included! I'm sure the price might be even cheaper if you can bargain ;) I knew the price was still $1600 to $1605 last week 'cause my friend just bought one at that price from SLRR.

Don't think a new Pentax dSLR would come anytime soon, but good to see that our favorite camera K5 has become even affordable.

Let's wait and see what the price would be for our little QQ. I don't mind getting one if the price is right ;p

Yeah. Last week when I got the K5 Silver, it was much lower than the price shown in the forum. ;)

Just grab one and you will never regret the decision. Keep shooting! (Better not have freebies since its not free anyway)

Good for some, but no good for the early adopters, especially those fervent Pentax supporters who upgraded. After 4 months, if I were to sell the K5, I will lose approximately 23% of its value, and possibly 60% at the end of one year. Good camera maybe, but lousy company and people running it. If I learn to love K5 (not Pentax) then I will buy the next one at the tail end of its life, otherwise, switch back to other more stable brands.

One good example of my previous experience, bought my 5D (4 yr old) at S$ 2000 and sold it for S$ 1700 after another year and lost 15% but gain 1 year of use.
