Pentax K-1 In Stock at B&H Photo
By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Jun 20, 2016
Ever since it made its debut at the end of April, the Pentax K-1 full-frame has been in high demand and short supply. The camera has enjoyed popularity on the forum; our members have already shared thousands of photos taken with a plethora of lenses, old and new.
Today makes the first time that the K-1 has been listed as "In stock" at B&H Photo, the largest Pentax retailer in the US. All outstanding pre-orders should have shipped today.
B&H offers free expedited (1-3 day) shipping within the contiguous US in addition to international shipping and optional up-front customs clearance. By ordering through the link in this post you will also be entitled to a 1-year forum account upgrade.
Other major retailers that we've been following still show the camera as back-ordered, though user reports do suggest limited availability at smaller stores. Third-party grey market sellers on Amazon have even been taking advantage of this by offering the K-1 at a premium.
We've recently published our in-depth review of the Pentax K-1 and can safely say that it's among the most compelling Pentax cameras released to date, second only to the 645Z in terms of image quality, and more versatile when it comes to features.
If you are awaiting deliver of the K-1, be sure to stop by the review for usage tips and recommended settings, which can be found alongside our detailed analysis of the camera's performance.
