Pentax K-5 IIs Discontinued
By PF Staff in Pentax Announcements on Dec 9, 2014
Just over two years have passed since the debut of the Pentax K-5 IIs, and another two since the debut of its (virtually identical) predecessor, the K-5. Thus, the inevitable is upon us: this acclaimed yet aging Pentax flagship has been retired by Pentax if favor of the Pentax K-3 and its future replacements. We confirmed this news with our US retail partners earlier today.
The Pentax K-5 IIs was missing from the Ricoh's 2014-2015 product catalog at Photokina 2014, and the K-5 II had been discontinued in the US several months earlier. Nevertheless, the K-5 IIs lingered on the shelves, giving Pentaxians an opportunity to upgrade to a powerful DSLR at a very affordable price.
B&H and Adorama have limited remaining stock of both bodies. Free grips are no longer being offered, though free 2-day shipping is still available for US customers.
