[Newegg] Pentax k20d and 18-55mm lens - $800 with free shipping

Good deal on this kit. Weather sealed, in-body image stabilization, etc. Not great for sports (only 3 fps), but perfect if you already have a few pentax lenses.

I was looking for a k200d, but at this price it's probably worth the extra few bucks to move up to the k20d:

Newegg also sells the body only for $730 if you don't want the kit lens, and a spare battery is only $50 with free shipping as well.

Thanks for the post. Any idea if the current rebate on the K20D & lens applies? Also, is the warranty a Canadian warranty (i.e. 2yrs) or an international warranty (1 yr)? Thanks again.

As this seller is in Sratford, ON, and if the purchaser is in ON, applicable taxes will be charged.

Yes, but with free shipping & the $100 rebate, the net cost of the camera (assuming 90.4 conversion rate) is about:
650 / 0.904 * 1.13 -100 = $712.50 (or equivalent to ~$630 before taxes) :) .

Now I just have to find some good deals on a 18-200mm lens.

Newegg.ca is Canadian version of Newegg.com. They ship everything out of the states so I believe you may not be able to apply the rebate to this camera. The rebate specifically states that it must be purchase from an authorized Canadian Pentax retailer.

If it works, let me know. I am thinking of the k20d.

Not sure where you guys are.

Here in Vancouver, Multiple Londondrugs has the Sigma 18-200 (pentax) for $329
Best deal (from almost 20 years ago): 2 boxes (20 reams of 500) of HP 92 white papers from staples for $7.00
Back when staples price match and takes off 50% of the price difference. (2004)

Thanks to all that posted.

My K20D arrived yesterday. There was a slight hitch with the shipping (shipping address did not match payment address), but they called me right away to straighten things out. However, it took another 1.5 days before it was shipped - a bit of confusion on their part, but actual shipping was very quick, since it was coming from Stratford. Camera was well packed & everything appears brand new & works perfectly. Also picked up the Pentax DA 18-250mm for $500 at Henry's as it is being discontinued. Will be trying it out tonight :) .
