Pentax K-x DSLR w/ 18-55 & 55-300 lens $USD 650

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/control ... 673&is=REG

This DSLR has very good reviews, decent high ISO performance and with two lenses 18-55 and 55-300mm at us$649.95 this seems like an amazing price.

The lenses alone would cost us$470 separately, so you're basically getting the camera body for us$180 !!!!

b+h ships to canada. pay UPS for delivery, no brokerage, no levis, taxes to UPS when it shows up, and you're done.

Yes, I've ordered stuff from B&H before. Shipping costs are reasonable, arrives fast and I only paid taxes on delivery (5% in Alberta).

I had to pay PST + GST when I ordered from them, but this is still cheaper than Ebay with the instant rebate.

I do wish that the White version of this camera was offered with the package though, although that's combination is basically impossible to get anyhow.

Argh! I was just talking with my girl about picking up a DSLR. Now I see this thing! RFD is eeeevil!

So is this really a good deal on this camera? Two lenses seems pretty cool. I also wish white was part of the combo deal but black still looks nice.

Which shipping method do I pick if I want to avoid UPS brokerage fees and all? I see UPS Worldwide Expedited and UPS Worldwide Saver.

TIA!

I think either will be fine. I used Expedited with a $130 item through B&H and I was only hit with taxes. UPS Ground is the evil one and they don't even provide that option.

is $468 a good price for the white one with a 18-55 lens? I want one but I'm on a budget, prefer the look of the white one, and probably will just use that lens for a good while.

The White one is really nice. I wanted that one but settled for the black. That seems like a good price though still. If it's CDN dollars then it's really good a price.

it's a great deal ihmo. You guys were right BHP ships to Canada :D
If you're looking at a K-7, this is a good deal: http://www.abesofmaine.com/item.do?item ... id=PNK72LK

They ship to .ca but be careful NOT to choose UPS Ground as shipping. Also go to the coupon section and you can get $20 off.

It's not bad. Maybe 2-3% off of the official Bank of Canada exchange rate...

Yes, $468 is a sweet deal if you don't need or already have a tele lens. Pentax K-x is an awesome camera for the price (sorry, I don't own one, but the web is full of positive reviews...).

sucks dude! I guess you could order from bhphoto (pending a price drop) and just return the black one to amazon.
