Found it:White K-x with 55-300 kit

I know some of us have been looking for this for awhile...I finally found it:

I just got a white K-x coupled with the standard white 18-55 AND the 55-300 lens! I ordered it through Amazon but it was through electronics expo....here is the link... $715 all in the same Pentax box.

I've seen the same kits in black as low as about $680...but prices are now back up for them too now...

Keep it in the box mint - it will be worth a fortune.
Just, kidding congratulations.

I went to their website and there isn't a button to click on to add it to your cart! How do you purchase one from them? The price is cheaper than the K-x with the 18-55 plus the 55-200, strange...

When I first saw it about 10 days ago there were 3 left on the Amazon site. I ordered the last one and it said something like "1 left ...more coming". It was a purchased through Amazon but it was shipped directly by Electronics Expo...if I dont count the weekend it came in 3 days. With shipping it was $722. The amazon link has since disappeared ...I'm not sure if you will be able to see this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003KWP8P2/ref=oss_product

Hello, and thank you for your reply, and pictures. I love the colored K-x, the white is my 2nd favorite next to the incredible BLUE (not the navy). Seeing your pictures makes me drewl. I have seen many pictures taken with that 55-300 that are really good in my opinion. I was in touch with Electronics Expo this morning and the guy said they had 2 left in stock. Your price confirmed theirs of $715 + 6.99 shipping. I had a chance recently to get the 2 lens kit for $644 (black) so I'm kicking myself as prices have ramped up and most retailers are out of stock. But I prefer white so I should just pull the trigger here.
Enjoy your new camera friend -

I called Electronics Expo this morning and the guy quoted the price $715 + 7% tax. That would total to $765, which is high compared to the Black 2 lens kit available on amazon for $722. Has anyone seen a Red+2 lens kit?
I would love to get the K-X Red or Navy. Worried about White getting dirty soon.

Hey everyone, electronics expo is a retailer participating in the bing cashback program too, so don't throw away your 6.25% cashback! (that is over forty bucks)

Icemanz, have you seen the red K-x in person? Think Pink. I haven't seen the navy but it is probably nice. Finally, I had the white (since sold sadly, no room in the bag), no signs of getting remotely dirty after 7-8 months (bought in Nov) - and the white is bad ass. Skip the red for sure.
