Are we going to see bundle deals?

I picked up my K-3 pretty close to launch and they were including the official grip, battery and da 50mm f/1.8 lens. When will we start seeing bundles with the K-1? There isn't even a deal with the kit 28-105 yet; just body only.

I hope they do... soon. I would love to see a K1 and 24-70 or 15-30 bundle.

This is an interesting question, since normally, all kits are made available at launch. Will follow up with Ricoh USA about this.

There are no 645Z kits (unless you want to drop $20k on all the lenses at once), so perhaps they're following suit with the K-1 in the US.

Wasn't b&h or adorama offering a free 55mm f/2.8 with the 645z at one point?

In Sweden they have one bundle with the 645Z, what lens I do not remember. But still no bundle with the K-1. I was hoping for the 24-70 but when they did'nt put up any I bought the 24-70 on the side. Hope I won't regret that to much...

I wish there was one of those as well. Unfortunately I ended up having to make my own expensive bundle... I couldnt click the checkout button until both were in the cart

The K1 is also 'bunlded' in the UK (pentax pro dealers) at the moment.

Any option (grip or lens) = £130 discount

What lens/lenses can you bundle with?
