Newegg is selling it for $190 with free ship. Unfortunately, Pentax screwed up and used a really small sensor on this camera, so its price has been in a free fall for a while, and may fall even further.

Even the picture quality is not good. I took it for $250 but returned after 10 days. Few shots are good, say 5 out of 50 are good. No doubt very handy, easy to keep and easy to handle.

I think the fact that there is a newer model out is probably why the price has dropped significantly lately.

Poor quality camera.. Wait until it drops to low $100s

It would be worth if it comes to $100

One nice thing about Pentax cameras is the interchangeable lenses. You can use older lenses that you can get CHEAP on eBay.

I'm not understanding some of the replies. The less you pay for a camera makes the quality increase?

Yeah, that does seem a bit odd, eh? Who cares how little it costs if the photos are less than what you expect.
