Is the battery grip d-bg4 stil available ???

Good day,

Can anyone please confirm if the battery grip d-bg4 is still being made ?

The battery grip for the K5 is back-ordered everywhere with no ETA; even at the Pentax web store(you'd think they know what's going on). Anyway, I went ahead an ordered one last week and still no updates.

If Pentax has discontinued the bg4 then I might as well cancel my order and get a copy from China.


thanks,
Rick

Nah. No stock at B&H, or Adorama, or Pentax webstore. Been that way for weeks.

I've been checking for several weeks now, and while at first they did not have the "out of stock' note at first, when you placed it in your basket, they came and said - "backorder only" But hey, maybe they had one on the 18th and I missed checking that day. You could be right.

Hi,

I purchased a used one from Adorama earlier this week (had a rating of E+). The next day they had another used d-bg4 (lower rating)for sale and that one went pretty fast....
