Huge savings in the US
By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Jun 12, 2017
The US Pentax retailer Adorama currently shows the Pentax KP selling for $987 ($122 off regular price) along with a free Pentax D-BG7 battery grip— a $229 value. This pushes the final effective discount well below 30% off compared to what the KP was selling for early last week.
While we do not know if and when this deal will expire, other retailers currently show the KP at full price long with a free grip, so it likely won't last at the reduce price.
The KP is Pentax's latest APS-C DSLR, featuring an all-new sensor with sensitivity up to ISO 819,200. Learn more in the official announcement, and stay tuned for our in-depth review. For the latest KP buzz, visit the Pentax KP forum.
