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.
