New Fall Pentax Rebates and Price Reductions

In a press release posted earlier today, Pentax announces some welcome news: official price reductions on the Pentax Q and 645D as well as instant rebates on the K-30 DSLR, K-01 mirrorless, and 6 different lenses.  Furthermore, the lens rebates double if you buy a new Pentax DSLR at the same time!

We summarize the price reductions and rebates in the tables below.  We believe that the 645D's price reduction deserves special attention, as this is the first time any kind of deal has been made for this camera.

Camera Instant Rebates

These rebates will go live at retailers on September 1st and will result in instant savings.

Lens Rebates

It looks like Pentax has chosen to primarily discount their more expensive lenses from the DA* series.  Whenever you purchase any of the following lenses with a Pentax DSLR, the savings double.  These rebates will take effect at all authorized Pentax retail outlets starting September 1st - no forms required!
