How's the video on this camera?

All of the people calling it a bait and switch seem to me like self-entitled bozos, honestly. That 40mm is a $380 lens, but let's say that the package price of it is about $250, since they get to move inventory when bundled with a camera (and is easily what you could sell it for on Craigslist). That leaves an effective $350 for the camera body, which is untouchable by any company for anything comparable.

|travfar||Some people on the pentax forums are calling bait and switch. The K-01 isn't $300 cheaper than it was before. Friday, before the rebate started, it sold for $760ish. Then the rebate hit and the price became $600. People were thinking it would be $300 off of $760 so under $500. Turns out the retailers reset the base price back to MSRP and took the $300 off of that. There's more than a K-01 rebate going on. It's for a bunch of Pentax things. The reset to MSRP before taking off the coupon has actually made some Pentax equipment more expensive then it was before the rebate.|

The lens is awesome. It's only 1 cm thick. It's like a body cap.
