Just received an e-mail from B&H and then confirmed in a phone call stating they received 47 black body and yellow body K 01 cameras selling for $299. They have the white body with 40mm lens for $379

If B&H is getting shipments shouldn't Amazon also be re-stocking ? Should I wait for Amazon or spend another $60 dollars and buy the k 01 from B&H. If I wait for Amazon and they don't produce I could miss out on a great price

Hank, I just this minute checked Amazon, and the best deals that had on Amazon Prime (meaning sold by or "as by" Amazon) were $369 with 40mm pancake lens for the black body, and $331.48, body only, for the yellow body. While the price for the black body with lens is slightly below what B&H quoted you for the white body with lens, the body-only prices are higher, and all the other body-only (and with lens) prices I saw on Amazon were higher than the two I just quoted, and most were NOT Amazon Prime, meaning you'd be buying through a third party, such as Abes of Maine, and maybe have to pay extra shipping, as well.

Since I have 12-months-same-as-cash account at Amazon, that's probably how I'll go, if I see a deal I like. But you may want to make other choices, depending on your circumstances.
