Just FYI - 50 Euro instant rebate in France on all Pentax lenses

Bonjour,

FYI - Just recently announced at my local French camera store (Phox) ... a 50 Euro instant rebate on all K and Q lenses. Yeah, some marketing "push" at last ... at least until the end of March.

Also, there's a combined promo/contest between DxO Labs and Pentax ... more marketing "push" ... Allez "go" Pentax!

Allez et bon courage, J Frog

Edit: here's the link for the DxO promo - http://www.dxo.com/fr/photo/contest/pentax-europe

A rebate of 50 euros on Q lenses? Ehh, that means for instance the toy lens telephoto, which is 129 euros over here, will cost only 79 euros after rebate. Is that correct?

Bonjour Asahiflex,

The salespeople had just received the "info" today and they indicated that it was 50€ off for all lenses ... very early "info" thus take it maybe with a grain of salt.

I asked if this rebate could be combined with other Pentax offers and their initial answer was "oui" ... I asked because I have two Pentax rebate voucher cards sitting on my desk ... what to do, what to do ... ?!

Allez, & ŕ plus- J

Once it's official, PM me a link and I'll announce it, chances are that this will apply across all of Europe.

Oh great, I just had decided (again) not to buy any more lenses in the next months and start saving for the new 560. Now I'm thinking about the DA 21...

Looks like the promo is only with Phox Photo camera retail chain

Bonjour,

Yes ... I know that I'm quoting myself, but I have looked at the other large scale camera retailers and electronics stores in France via the net and it seems that this may be a "Phox Photo" stand-alone promo ... I'm still searching and will update later.

Salut John. Is there any info on this on the internet, or do I have to find a local Phox store? I checked out the Phox website, and found nothing relevant.

Here's the in-store cardboard promo sign ...

Bonjour Sparkston et al.,

I have not found anything on the Phox site, Pentax France site, etc. concerning this "promo" ...

Please see attached a jpeg of the offer which I took a day or two ago ... as you might notice, the lens pictured is a discontinued one ?! (WT_ ...)

Hope this helps ... and spread the word, SVP.

Allez, salut ... et aux achats - J Frog

YES!!

I have been having a hard time deciding if I should get the DA35 or not next month, this just made the decision sooo much easier!!

169 - 50 = WIN!

I dropped into the Phox shop in Nice today, and they confirmed that the offer applied to all Pentax lenses, including the Q system.

Bonsoir Sparkston,

Thanks for your message ... and I think that I'm going to get a DA 50-200 WR with the 50€ reduction ...

Salut, J Frog

Could you check how that discount applies? My PHOX store tells me that the price for the DA 35 2.4, 169 eur, is already discounted and no further discount applies, however, that price seems to be standard all over france round about....
