That's the first time I've seen it anywhere for less than US $1000.

  • $977 - Pentax K3
  • $999 - Fuji XPro1
  • $1099 - Canon 70D
  • $1147 - Nikon D7100
  • $1291 - Olympus EM1
  • $1299 - Fuji XT1
  • $1698 - Panasonic GH4

But the "ultimate best buy" might be the Pentax K5 IIs, which Amazon is now selling for $689.

Of course, the fly in the ointment is that while Pentax generally has VERY competitive prices on camera bodies, their lenses tend to be pretty expensive. Especially once you get to the higher end lenses.
