Re: Anthony, try this link instead.

Yes, but when you add it to your cart/order and then click the link description it takes you to the $439 page (which still shows it in stock) rather than back to the $316 page (which is not in stock).

It looks like the $439 one is from Ace Photo while this new $316 deal is direct from Amazon.

The don't click the link description.

All I can say is if you want the item then use the link I gave you and place your order. Your order will cost you $316. I just got an email from Amazon saying that my order will ship around Jan 22.

Re: Anthony, try this link instead.

Way ahead of you Ron - that's how I'm knowing about the link in an order. 

Anyway, more legitimate would be my valuing the lens at the original premium for a kit over the body-alone, ie $149, instead of the separate retail price of $250.

So $316.95 - $149 values a brand new yellow K-01 body at $167.95, nine months after release.

And it's only the yellow model (so far) - so I wonder if they have excess of that one to clear out because it was the poorest seller, or they just made more of them at the outset?

My guess is the yellow one is the slow seller, if I had my choice at this price it would have been black first then white.

Re: Anthony, try this link instead.

The yellow K-01 with the 40mm would be a great street camera. Everyone would think you have some Holga or some toy cam, and just ignore you.

Just got an update from Amazon in my mail for the $316 K-01 that I ordered:

"Pentax K-01 16MP APS-C CMOS Compact System Camera Kit with DA 40mm Lens (Yellow)"

Looks like they will be shipping soon and definitely looking forward to this.

Ha, ha. Here's hoping we get them. I ordered one two days ago. I thought I had lost my mind, but the price was just irresistible.

If you all look at the regular Amazon listing for the yellow K-01 + 40mm at $416.95, does it say at the top this is the item you purchased? Maybe that item, bit not that price.

Different vendor, the $416.95 one is Adorama.  BTW, it's now $399.95 at Adorama's site.  Anyone know if Adorama has anything like a 30 day price guarantee?

I placed an order for the Yellow K-01 + 40mm lens for US $316 on Dec 27 and got an email about five days later telling me that the camera would ship between Jan 17th and Feb 7th.  They also said that I would not be charged until the camera ships.  It is an amazing price and I hope we all get our cameras soon.

Re: Yellow K-01 + 40mm lens for US $316.

just ordered one too! im in the UK and for the first time shipping was agreed. charged an extra $60  import  fees bringing total to $400, which is about £240, still £150 cheaper than Amazon UK. Now to see if it actually ships and when; temporarily out of stock.  Many thanks for the heads up
