Save US$189

By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on May 9, 2017

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.

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.
