Re: $316 K-01 on the way

I received an e-mail today from B&H telling me the yellow K 01, 40mm lens kit I was ordering could not be filled because they were told by pentax it has been discontinued and no more shipments would be arriving. I ordered the same camera, lens combo  from Amazon Dec. 29 and not knowing if they will be receiving a shipment from pentax I cancelled my order. I really do like the camera and lens so I ordered the black k01 with 40mm lens from B&H which is still in stock there for $50 more than Amazon was asking On Dec 29 but less than they are asking today. $369.00, 2% future credit and free shipping.

I hope Amazon will obtain enough cameras to fill the many orders. If they can't I paid  a little more to make sure I have one.  I have many manual lens and Fa an F lenses that should be fun to use on the K01.
