Pentax K-5 $999 Price Drop
At US retailers
By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Mar 20, 2012
The price of the Pentax K-5, the weather-sealed APS-C flagship from Pentax, has finally dropped to $999 at B&H Photo Video and Adorama, the main US-based Pentax retailers. It seems that Pentax has officially lowered the MSRP of the K-5 down to $1299, and when combined with the $300 instant rebate that retailers offer, we arrive at an amazing price! The rebate and $999 price expires on March 31st, so this is a one-time US offer!
The Pentax K-5 has gotten much praise over the year and a half that it's been available, and it still delivers best-in-class image quality and sensitivity through its 16.28 megapixel sensor, which has a very wide dynamic range and can go all the way up to ISO 51,200.
We've reviewed the K-5 twice: once on its own, and once comparatively against the Canon 7D.
Here are links to the most popular Pentax K-5 kits:
- Pentax K-5 Body-Only at B&H ($999)
- Pentax K-5 kit w/ weather-sealed 18-55mm lens at B&H ($1199)
- Pentax K-5 Body-Only at Adorama ($999)
- Pentax K-5 kit w/ weather-sealed 18-55mm lens at Adorama ($1199)
