B&H restocked with K-5

Just checked B&H and they have K-5 back in stock. Good News. Now the bad news. They are now listed at $1593.95. Up from $1485.95. Those who hesitate, lose.

Pretty crazy pricing policy - and the yen's been going down the last couple of days.

I'm not looking nor am I paying any attention either.

Cheers.

Aaand they're sold out again. Just when I was finally ready to cause some damage on the credit card...

I keep telling myself...

...to be patient and wait for the K-5 price to drop into the $1400 range.

I almost pulled the trigger with Amazon over the weekend, but I'm convinced that the price will drop again either on Black Friday/Cyber Monday or after Christmas, assuming that the K-5 doesn't sell out by then. I got my K-x on Black Friday last year at $500; considerably less than the going price from the big boys at that time. Hopefully history will repeat itself...

Just an expression of a personal opinion, I reckon. It is what people in some lucky countries call "free speech." Those in unlucky countries, or in some unlucky centuries in the past, can be persecuted, prosecuted or even burned at the stake for expressing their personal opinion, especially if such an opinion offends the ruling class or the filthy rich.

I believe not interested means the price is still too high, which is a reasonable comment when a K5 price is posted.
