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.

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!
