For a limited time B&H Photo offers the Pentax K-3 II with the matching Pentax D-BG5 battery grip at no additional cost. Valued at $189, the free item makes the effective cost of the body just $610— the lowest we've seen to date.
Ricoh's own Pentax web store currently sells the K-3 II for $999 and that price doesn't even include the grip.
Details on if and when this deal will expire are not currently known.

Mother's Day US special
By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on May 7, 2017
For a limited time, as a Mother's Day special, B&H is offering the Pentax K-1 with a free Pentax D-BG6 battery grip. The camera is currently priced at $1,783.98 (well below the new MSRP), but this is of course subject to change.
This is one of the most attractive offers we've come accross since the K-1's launch. The camera's street price has otherwise been unwavering and even managed to climb a bit over time.
