Pre-order your Pentax K-3 now and get free extras!

I have convinced B&H to add a free 32Gb SD card to their K-3 kits!

In addition, by getting this camera at B&H you'll of course be entitled to free Marketplace access on our forum (per the instructions in the thread linked from my signature)

Adam, the battery isn't mentioned on the B&H site, just the card.

I have secured an exclusive deal for PF members who pre-order the K-3 at B&H: all kits will include a free 32Gb SD card as well as a spare battery.

The silver K-3 kit will be produced in extremely limited quantity, so be sure to pre-order yours if you'd like to secure one. Note that B&H doesn't charge you until the item ships (they only do an authorization).

Guess they decided not to include the battery, though I was told it would be included. That's a nice card they're including, though!

I went ahead and placed my order (didn't want to miss my place in line!). Kind of a bummer about the battery, but you're right, it is a nice card. Btw, their price is actually $1296.95 fwiw.

Retailers have started shaving $3 off the price because it doesn't violate MAP but "looks" cheaper. $1299.95 is the official MSRP so that's what you'll see in our postings.

My K-30 is only 2 months old. Does anybody know whether buying this body would be grounds for divorce in CT?

How awesome is my wife? I've had money put aside for this new body for a while now, but she recently got some money through an insurance settlement and insists on buying it for me as a gift! Told me to spend my money on "lenses or something." Is she a keeper or what?

Welp, I ordered one as well. I've been hoping that what appears to be a material upgrade to the K-5 would materialize.

While the K-5 is clearly the best camera I've ever owned, it's been several years and there are/were opportunities for improvement.
The published list looks robust, and even if all the list doesn't deliver as much as we hope, it would be really hard to screw up
some of them such as multiple card slots.

Silver body and grip just (pre)ordered. If I was Ricoh marketing, I would release this nice aps-c and after the buying flurry, THEN let news on the upcoming FF so as not to kill K-3 sales at release. This way they can sell 2 cameras to the rabid gear heads.

Its nice having both kids out on their own and sending home a weekly allowance for the old man. I can dream anyway.

Good job on the arrangement Adam!

Spare battery not included but this is so great Adam thank you for being so generous and how do I know if you get a percentage to get this awesome site running? Do I message you the order number? I was charged already because I am from the land downunder.
