These WPPI Deals Aren't Just for Wedding Photographers
Big price drops on cameras and lenses!
By deadwolfbones in Deals and Savings on Feb 8, 2017
This week Las Vegas plays host to the annual Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) expo, and photo stores are rolling out the red carpet with some big albeit temporary price cuts on popular cameras, lenses, and accessories.
Here's a quick rundown of the most interesting online deals that just went live!
Pentax K-70 Body
The K-70 is Pentax's latest, greatest mid-range APS-C DSLR—depending on how you view the recently announced KP, anyway. We loved it, our readers love it, and it's already on sale for just $599 from B&H. That's $50 off the $649 MSRP, and $20 off the previous low of $619. There's no telling how long this sale will last, so if you're in the market, now's the time to buy.

- $599.00 at B&H Photo (+4% reward)
Pentax K-1 Body
Order your Pentax K-1 body now and get $150 off the new MSRP for a short time.
D FA Full-frame Zooms
These deals went live after the original publication of this post, but there are now big online savings on D FA full-frame lenses exclusively at B&H.
- $1246 - HD PENTAX-D FA 15-30mm F2.8
- $1146 - HD Pentax-D FA 24-70mm F2.8
- $399 - HD PENTAX-D FA 28-105mm F3.5-5.6

B&H has not one but two great lenses on sale this week. Both the 35mm f/1.4 ART full-frame prime lens and the groundbreaking 18-35mm f/1.8 ART APS-C zoom are $50 off their usual prices—$849 and $749, respectively, once added to your cart. There's no coupon code needed; just use the links below!

Canon Pro Photo Printer + Paper
This may not be a Pentax product, or explicitly made for Pentaxians, but it's one heck of a deal regardless. Just $79 gets you the well-regarded Canon PIXMA PRO-100 inkjet photo printer, a starter set of ink, and 50 sheets of 13 x 19" semi-gloss Canon photo paper. This is a printer that can handle pretty much any job you're likely to throw at it (up to 13 x 19", that is), including printing on optical discs. It's fully wireless, so you can print from anywhere in your home, and AirPrint and PictBridge make it easy to print straight from your iPhone or camera.
Get your Canon PIXMA PRO-100 now:
- $79.00 at B&H Photo after $50 IR and $250 MIR (+free photo paper)
Lightroom + Photoshop CC
Let's be real: These are essential tools in any photographer's arsenal, and right now you can pick up both of them for just $99.88 per year (or $8.33 per month), prepaid, at B&H Photo. That's $20 off the usual $119.88 per year. Better still, you can purchase multiple years up front; around $200 for 2 years, $300 for 3 years... you get the idea.
As with all of these B&H deals, you'll need to add it to your cart to see the sale price. (Sorry, international readers, this deal is only available to US Adobe accounts.)

Datacolor Monitor Calibration Tools
Ever find that your printed photos don't quite live up to what you see on your screen? Or maybe your shots look way different on someone else's monitor? It's annoying, but here's the good news: there's a simple fix. All you need to do is calibrate your monitor.
To celebrate WPPI, Adorama is offering discounts on several popular Datacolor Spyder5 calibrators, knocking $30 to $80 off their usual retail prices.
Get your Datacolor Spyder5 USB Colorimeters now:
- Datacolor Spyder5 Express with Software CD: $99.99 at Adorama
