Looks like this will be the end of it. 

Amazon.de now lists the K-7 at 869 euros, some other online shops are
down to 840. Various Pentax premium resellers OTOH have no more K-7 in
stock. Theyr'e still sitting on heaps of unsaleable K20D and they'll
certainly not order any more K-7 only to see them flogged off by places
like Alpafoto of Neuwied for 699 in a few weeks.

Pentax-Hoya are proactively chasing away their premium dealers. Well,
it's their party...

Currently, used K-7 go for around 700 euros on ebay.de. That'll come
down real fast to 500 once people will have learned about the new prices
and the upcoming replacement model. Those who need the money from the
sale of their K-7 to finance the next model will have to act fast now.
