Phoenix Pentax shopping?

I'm taking a quick trip from a Pentax desert (no retail outlets anywhere) to the real desert, Phoenix. Are there any retail outlets anymore, or better yet, places where one might find a secondhand lens or two?

Google shows a number of camera stores in the greater Phoenix area.

True, and those might fill all of my Nikon or Canon needs, if I had them. But finding Pentax-equipped stores isn't a given, and the website regarding authorized dealers is often behind.

You might want to try calling Tempe camera. I'm not sure if they carry any Pentax gear in store, but they are an authorized dealer.

I regularly attend photo classes here in the area and the launch of the K-1 has definitely increased awareness about the brand, so I'd speculate that you'd be able to find the K-1 in at least one local store.

I saw a reference to a place called Fry's Electronics on the internet that mentioned some Pentax products were carried there. The shortcut to the Phoenix store listing on the web is Fry's Electronics. Welcome to our Phoenix AZ. Store Location.

Rather pathetic Pentax listing.

Fry's Electronics |

We have a couple Fry's near me. In fact, they had a K100D (no lens) on display many years ago. A few years back, I also bought a 50-200 with a great price that turned out to be (not mentioned) open-box. Best Buy beats them on almost every price I have compared recently for other electronics.

I was at Tempe Camera last fall. They had a K-3ii and K-1 on display on a shelf behind the main counter. Didn't see any other new Pentax stuff. They had a number of used Pentax lenses, though. It may be worth a visit.
