price drop

dose anyone . think or feel that there might be a price drop on the k-3-iii for the holidays, I know they have a promotion with the battery grip right now but would rather save a little on the camera :-)?

I would not be surprised if there was not some promotion when sales slow a bit.
There have been some used K3iii for sale also, at a significant discount.

I don't think it's going to get any lower.

Both B&H & Adorama are currently adding the grip for free.

They also have some discounts with lenses. Like for example, you can get the black K-3III, grip, & DA Limited 40mm lens for $2,297 from B&H. If you bought all that separately right now, you'd pay about $2,641.

(moved to the K-3 III section)

As always, the answer to this question is "we'll have to wait and see". Last year there were some modest deals on flagship camera models (savings up of up to €200 in Europe and a free $200 gift card in the US) and given the K-3 III's high price, I would personally speculate that there is room for an incentive.

Late last week we did get a free grip deal on the K-3 III; we could end up seeing this this being paired with a rebate or a free GC. Or, this could be as low as it goes for now:

Another thing to consider is the slowdown of imported goods. There could be a shortage of electronics goods, including cameras for the holidays unless the shipping backups are resolved. If that's the case, dealers won't have much of an incentive to drop prices.

When I decided to try for one of the limited in number premium special editions of the K 3 III,

I did not expect to get one and if I did not get what I wanted, I was not going to buy it at the introductory price

I expected after 6 months or so the price of the K 3 III to be reduced

So far, as far as I know, no reduction in base price but some " specials " if one gets the battery grip or perhaps a lens
