Hi folks,

From yesterday's press release:
    PENTAX LOWERS PRICE ON FEATURE-RICH, 14.6 MEGAPIXEL K20D

    GOLDEN, CO. (February 23, 2009)…PENTAX Imaging Company has announced a reduction in the minimum advertised price (MAP) of the award winning PENTAX K20 digital SLR. Effective immediately, the MAP price of the PENTAX K20D body and two K20D lens kit configurations have been reduced by $200.00 USD. The new MAP pricing is as follows:

      PENTAX K20D body only: $799.95

      PENTAX K20D with DA 18-55mm II lens kit: $879.95

      PENTAX K20D with DA 16-45mm lens kit: $1199.95
    “With this price reduction, PENTAX now offers consumers the highest resolution on one of the most fully-featured DSLRs priced under 800 dollars,” said Bill Zani, vice president sales and marketing, PENTAX Imaging Company.

    Along with the price reductions, PENTAX is extending the K20D FREE Three Year Warranty (one year standard, two years extended) on all K20Ds purchased by March 31, 2009.

    Highly rated by several consumer magazines, the PENTAX K20D digital SLR camera with 14.6 megapixels is equipped with advanced features including a dust-proof, weather-resistant body, PRIME image processor that allows full image customization, and PENTAX developed Shake Reduction that works with any of the 25 million PENTAX lenses ever manufactured. The PENTAX K20D is the most affordable high resolution DSLR camera in the advanced photo enthusiast category and allows more experienced photographers, who demand complete control, to fully customize the camera.
Be sure to have a read of Gordon's Pentax K20D review.

Bob.

I guess it was god thing that I was waiting even though the price of K20D in the store I want to buy from was at this price for last 3 months CAD $974.44 which is about USD $780-$800. I just called them now to check it out but the price is still the same even though they got new price sheets yesterday. I will wait couple weeks more to see what is going to happen.
