K-5 Discontinued at B&H

Saw this on another photography site, looks like B&H has officially discontinued carrying the K-5 body, be interesting to see how long it will be available at other stores.

The K-5 isn't in production any more, but lots of stores still have lingering stock.

I think once I wear out my K-5 that I have now, given the right financial conditions I will buy two K-5 IIs bodies. I think that would make walking around shooting kinda nice.

There are still brand new K-7 and K-r on ebay, so stock of new-in-box K-5 will probably be around for a long time. There are even some brand new *istD still available.

I just bought a K5 last week from Adorama. They have always been my vendor of choice. I have never bought from B&H so nothing bad to say about them. I am just loyal if you are good to me. I bought most of my gear at my local camera shop (Adrays Camera in the metro Detroit area). Can't do that anymore. But anyways the manufacture date for my K5 is 10/30/2012. So my K5 is brand new, has not been sitting someplace. I would jump on Adoramas K5 deal and add Pentax no brainer warranty, or Adoramas warranty if you want to cover dropping it. But soon they will be gone. If you are looking. Get them while they are fresh!
