The Best Black Friday Pentax Deals

an overview of top savings · Posted on 11-24-2012 in Pentax Deals

Black Friday brought many great Pentax deals, most of which will continue through Monday, November 26th.  In addition, we expect retailers to post some new deals for Cyber Monday only, so please stay tuned!

Yesterday's deals were mainly for Pentax lenses, DSLRs, and the Pentax K-01.  While some of the deals can also be found on Amazon's web site and at smaller retailers, it was mainly B&H and Adorama of NYC who truly made an effort to price Pentax gear attractively, especially considering how expensive Pentax lenses have been over the past several months.  The only exception to this is the Pentax Q/Q10, which B&H and Adorama have neglected (however, Newegg is offering a great deal on the Q with the 02 zoom lens).

In this post we highlight what we've found to be the best USA Pentax & photo deals.  If you want to view all the discounts out there, please check these two posts, which have recently been updated to reflect the latest price drops:

"In addition, we expect retailers to post some new deals for Cyber Monday only, so please stay tuned!" I think Adam is hinting at something here.

Been trying to get the K-5 IIs from B&H this morning, and they apparently will no longer take orders at the current price. When asked if there was a way to get it at the current price, their rep said "I can not predict future pricing, I'm sorry." When pressed on the issue, they said" I can not speak for any web site other that B&H, the pricing on the B&H website is accurate. Other websites do not speak for us." Is there any way to secure this given the B&H/Pentaxforums relationship?

Oh my god, K-5IIs for just over a grand, man that just is not fair at all. Well, alright...

Still waiting for the K-5 IIS from B&H, cheers!
