Pentax K-01 for $249: All-time Low!

Excellent image quality at a bargain price

By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Apr 9, 2013

Adorama has just dropped the price of the Pentax K-01 black and yellow bodies to just $249!  On top of this, the cameras include free shipping as well as 2% back in coupon rewards.

Last November, Pentax USA dropped the price of the K-01 to $346, down from $599 amidst very slow sales.  Since then, the official price dropped to $316 and later $299.  This new low price, however, isn't going to last and to the best of our knowledge it is an Adorama exclusive.  The K-01 has officially been discontinued as of last month.

Originally launched in early 2012, the Pentax K-01 was the first mirrorless camera to natively support a DSLR lens lineup.  Even though it boasts excellent image quality (and at this price, it is unmatched), the K-01 received mixed reviews due to its design and lack of a viewfinder.  Combined with its high initial price of $749, this led to low popularity among photographers.

For more information on the K-01, including a comprehensive evaluation of its image quality and autofocus, check out our in-depth K-01 review.

It has been a long time since we posted a deal, but this one is almost too good to be true.  We hope you take advatage of it!

Black Friday Pentax Lens & Flash Deals (2014)

By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Nov 28, 2014

The time has finally come— the biggest US Pentax lens sale is here!  From November 27th until December 1st (Black Friday Weekend + Cyber Monday), you can secure big savings on nearly ever lens in the current Pentax lineup.  The discounted prices listed in this post are at the two biggest authorized Pentax dealers in the country, so you can shop with confidence and enjoy perks such as gift card rewards and free expedited shipping.

Some of the hottest deals this year include $300 off the DA 20-40mm lens (see below) as well as record-low prices on HD Limiteds and substantial savings on Star lenses.  Also, be sure not to miss the great Pentax camera deals!

Several rock-bottom lens prices prices (listed below) are also available exclusively through the Pentax Web Store, though note that additional tax and shipping charges will apply, and the Pentax Web Store only ships to US customers.

The full list of deals follows after the break.  But first, here's a quick FAQ for those new to Pentax and for our international users:

What if I'm not in the US?

Both B&H and Adorama offer international shipping, though extra customs charges may apply based on your order size on where you live.  Given the size of the current promotional rebates, your final cost may still end up being lower than at your local retailer. Proceed to checkout for an international shipping quote.

How can the prices be so low?

The US Pentax distributor (Ricoh Imaging Americas), like most other camera brands, normally enforces a unilateral pricing policy that prevents authorized dealers for selling products for less than a set price.  This policy is lifted during promotional periods, thus allowing retailers to sell at more competitive prices.  Thus, prices can be lower at one retailer than the other. Full US warranty is still included on all items.

Additional Perks

Remember that shopping at B&H and Adorama using the links below entitles you to free Marketplace Access on our forum.  This will allow you to list your old equipment for sale for free.

Promotional Period

All Pentax Black Friday deals expire on Monday, December 1st at 11:59PM US Eastern Time.  Note that B&H will not accept online orders between 4:30PM on November 28th and 5:45PM on November 29th.
