Black Friday: Pentax Lenses up to 60% Off!

Massive savings as MAP restrictions are dropped, this weekend only

By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Nov 23, 2012

For the Black Friday weekend (through Monday, November 26th), Pentax USA has lifted the online Unilateral Pricing Policy.  This means that you can save up to 60% on Pentax lenses at authorized retailers for the next four days- so be quick, and get your orders in!  For the time being, Pentax lenses are once again as affordable as they always should have been.  The prices will be honored even for back-ordered items.

We expect this sale to clean out both B&H and Adorama's Pentax lens inventory, so act quick if you'd like to secure these deals.  We have confirmed that the UPP will be back in effect next week.  Please note that you have to look at both retailers' pricing in order to get the best price: for some times, Adorama has lower prices than B&H, and vice-versa.  Refer to the table below for which store is cheaper.

All the discounted lenses are listed in the table below (basically every Pentax lens).  The are sorted by focal length, with primes first, followed by zooms. The DA* 16-50mm, DA* 50-135mm, DA* 60-250mm, and DA* 300mm with many prices half-off, and remember that there are some double instant rebates whenever you buy a lens together with a Pentax DSLR at B&H (refer to the table below)

Pentax K-3 and K-50 Price Dive

massive savings and free goodies continue

By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Oct 1, 2014

October brings us even more amazing Pentax camera deals in the US!  This time, we see instant rebates on the Pentax K-3 ($100) and K-50 ($50) on top of the existing price drops in the same amount announced during the summer.  The prices of these cameras are hitting rock-bottom; refer to the table below for details on the savings. 

If we factor in the value of freebies, a K-50 can be had for the equivalent of $278, while the K-3 can be had for well under $1000.

Adorama currently offers the most competitive deals among authorized retailers, though B&H is also matching some of the deals.  All kits include free US shipping and many include 4% in rewards:

This post will be updated as we are informed of new October deals and savings.  All deals are subject to changed based on store and manufacturer policies.  Last updated on Monday, October 6, 2014.

Note that the NYC-based Pentax retailers will be closed for most of the first half of October.  Shipping cut-offs are October 2rd for this week or October 7th for next week, as both B&H and Adorama will close early on October 8th and remain closed through Saturday, October 18th.

If you ordered a K-3 or K-50 at either of the stores in the past 30 days, but paid a higher price, you will be able to get the difference refunded or issued as store credit by calling customer service.

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.
