Pentax K-1 Lens Bundle Deals: Beat the Price Hike

Save hundreds on the K-1 by bundling a lens

By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Dec 6, 2016

In response to current exchange rates as well as continued high demand, on October 1, 2016, Ricoh Imaging increased the price of the Pentax K-1 full frame to $1949 USD (+$150), £1799 (+£200), €2099 (+€100), and $2599 CAD (+$100) in the respective markets.  The Australian price remains unchanged at $2899 AUD, while the Japanese price has dipped to approximately ¥240,000.

While UK, EU, and Australian customers got access to launch pricing (or below) on the K-1 during last week's Black Friday sale, the US rebate on the K-1 was at most $100— still above the original launch price.

We have spotted four deals at B&H Photo that allow you to purchase the K-1 at the equivalent of as little as $1541 by bundling a 15-30mm, 28-105mm, 24-70mm, or 70-200mm lens. All of these bundles also include a free camera bag and a 64 GB Sandisk Extreme SD card.  Details below:

Black Friday 2016 Deal Roundup

By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Nov 25, 2016

Black Friday is here, and there are some excellent deals to be had on Pentax gear and other photographic equipment!  Here's our roundup of what we've come across so far at major stores in the US, UK, and Australia:

US: Pentax Cameras

This year's Pentax camera savings aren't as massive as we've seen in the past, but still welcome in light of Ricoh's more conservative pricing policies.

US: Pentax Lenses

B&H Photo is currently the only major US retailer with a significant number of Pentax lens rebates.  The prices listed below are either the lowest we've seen in the past several months, or significantly below the recent average.  Visit our deal finder for exact discount percentages.

US: Third-Party Lenses

Third-party lens rebates are quite good this year, despite the dwindling number of K-mount autofocus options being produced by Sigma.
