I have been waiting to sell my backup K3II for a couple months now , and have been holding off because there doesn't seem to be any good promotions going on anywhere on the KP ?
Seems like everything is rather Flat and Stagnant as far as pricing goes on not only the KP , but most of Pentax bodies and lenses ?
Have I missed the Boat so to speak ?
Getting rather frustrated trying to save some money , but as soon as I jump in then it will go on sale , or Rebate somewhere....
See my recent post in Pentax Price Watch!

599.00
This product is out of stock. Add to your basket and we'll deliver it as soon as it's available. No payment taken until dispatch.


Quoting from the site, same as when I ordered. All the orders are being back-ordered - so the Jessops rep told me. I think they are waiting for a decent uptake then will ship the stock in from Japan - that is my assumption. When I ordered (twice!) I spoke on the phone to the rep and no mention was made of no stock - if there was NO stock they would just remove the deal.

And you can use a voucher code - in red at the top of the deal... have a look for PENTAXDISCOUNT and apply it on checkout...

Hope this helps.

Call adorama, maybe they will offer you a deal! It is an 800 number Ron so all you lose is a few minutes of time. And there is someone who is looking for a deal on a K-3 or K-3II.
Quote them the British deal that is under 800.00 and see if they will match! That or look for E bay coupons and buy from Adorama that way. (Doesn't support the forums that way though.)

Demo at Adorama for 809.00 Ron. https://www.adorama.com/us%20%20%20%20985537.html

Cant get a factory warranty on it.....nor can I buy an extended factory warranty....that means Pass for this one.

Nice to get truly New and spend under 20.00 for an additional 2 years of warrantee. That is what I did and I do not regret it. No problems in 3700 images but for that much cash, I want my peace of mind.

Exactly.....I want that new smell and the longest factory warranty I can get. Thanks for trying though.....Im still looking. Barely missed a deal on Amazon notification for $829.....they only had one.....I missed it by 30 seconds.

The KP is 896.95 at B&H right now, and I don't think I can wait much longer. I'm probably going to bite the bullet and place an order as I really want to get my hands on one.....

Check Adorama also, sometimes they have a package for the same price that has a cleaning kit, bag and often a DA 50mm 1.8 in it. That is how I got my DA 50.

Im checking.....Nothing motivating me yet there.... other than I did notice they have a "free" kit that includes a nice shoulder bag , cleaning kit , and SD card......not quite enough and it looks like they are out of black KP bodies.
