Makes the K-1 II almost as affordable as the K-1
By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Mar 13, 2018
The new Pentax K-1 II is just around the corner, with an expected release in early April. If you pre-order yours today from either of the big two US Pentax retailers, you can secure a free BG-6 battery grip, which is a $219 value. This brings the price of the K-1 II within $100 of the original K-1. Check out with a credit card and you won't be charged until your order ships.
As icing on the cake, once your order ships, you can claim a whole year of Marketplace access by following these instructions.
This is a limited-time special; once the deal expires, the K-1 II will sell at its MSRP of $1996.95 with no free grip.
Current K-1 owners also have the option of purchasing a hardware upgrade that effectively turns a K-1 into a K-1 II.

Both Adorama and B&H Photo are currently offering the K-1 for $200 off along with a free battery grip and a free Pentax D-Li 90 battery. The final price of the combo is $1696.95, which yields a savings of over $450. if you factor in the value of the grip and battery.

Lowest price in 9 months

Last week, the Pentax K-3 II was marked as discontinued on the Japanese Pentax web site, capping off nearly four and a half years of the K-3 family's run as the Pentax APS-C flagship.
Unsurprisngly, a very good deal on the K-3 II went live shortly thereafter. Adorama has reduced the price of the K-3 II by $10 and is also throwing in the matching Pentax D-BG5 battery grip at no additional cost. That's a total savings of over $300!
Secure your K-3 II before they're gone for good:
Other US-based retailers are currently not offering the free grip, and show higher prices for the camera. We expect news of a K-3 II successor to follow at the CP+ photo trade show that's coming up in early March.
