All-time low prices on Pentax DSLRs
By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Nov 27, 2015
Great deals on Pentax DSLRs are here this Black Friday— and most of these prices are the lowest that we have seen to date. The price drops themselves are nowhere near as dramatic as we have seen in the past, as everyday Pentax camera prices have been quite low this whole year. Without further ado, let's take a look at the best Pentax DSLR deals in the US!
Pentax K-3 II: $749 at B&H Photo
The Pentax K-3 II flagship has dropped to $749 from its previous selling price of $819. This represents a $100 price drop compared to October's price at B&H.
New features in the K-3 II include pixel-shift super resolution and built-in GPS on top of the already great performance of the original Pentax K-3 (the K-3 II has no on-board flash, however).
Pentax K-3: $649 at Adorama w/ free lens and flash
If you're looking for top-tier image quality and handling at a competitive price, you cannot go wrong with the Pentax K-3. Adorama is currently offering the body along with a free DA 50mm F1.8 lens and a AF 200FG flash (freebie value $161.99).
Pentax K-50 + DA L 18-55mm WR: $249 at Samy's
Thanks to an exclusive $100 mail-in rebate, Samy's camera has an unbeatable deal on the Pentax K-50 weather-sealed kit. The K-50 is a powerful DSLR with many advanced features at an entry-level price.
Pentax K-S1 + DA L 18-55mm: $179 at Samy's
This Pentax K-S1 kit screams "value" thanks once again to Samy's $100 mail-in rebate. The K-S1 is a stylish entry-level DSLR with the new 20.2-megapixel sensor.
Pentax 645Z: $6996 at Adorama / B&H
It's rare for professional cameras to see discounts, but photographers considering the Pentax 645Z medium-format flagship are in luck! This 51-megapixel behemoth has recently been permanently reduced from $8499 to $6999.
2-Year Warranty Extension: $17.96 at Adorama / B&H
Customers located in the US can take advantage of a unique offer from Pentax: this 2-year warranty extension increases the manufacturer's coverage to 3 years and includes one free cleaning/inspection.
Conditions: Must be purchased within 30 days of your camera (as indicated on the camera's sales receipt). Camera must be purchased from an authorized dealer. Camera may be purchased from a different retailer than the warranty. No registration necessary. No transferals.
Record-low US prices on nearly all lenses
By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Nov 26, 2015
The biggest US Pentax lens sale of the year is here, and many of the already-low everyday prices on Pentax lenses have been dropped even further at B&H Photo and Adorama— the largest authorized Pentax dealers in the nation.
Compared to last year's Black Friday sale, virtually every lens is cheaper in 2015 than in 2014. This year is a little bit different in that these price drops do not have a definitive expiration date and can fluctuate daily.
The full list of deals for both genuine and third-party lenses follows after the break. But first, here's a quick FAQ for those new to Pentax and for our international users:
What if I'm not in the US?
Both B&H and Adorama offer international shipping, though extra customs charges may apply based on your order size and where you live. Given the size of the current promotional rebates, your final cost may still end up being lower than at your local retailer. Proceed to checkout for an international shipping quote.
Remember that shopping at B&H and Adorama using the links below entitles you to free Marketplace Access on our forum. This will allow you to list your old equipment for sale for free.
Camera deals will follow in a separate post.
