Hello and help to find K3 in NY

Hello,
My name is Leandro and I'm from Argentina.

I'm consider myself as just a hobbist but a few years ago I started to like photograpy more and more since I started to enjoy this hobby with my daughter.... and she is better photographer than me...

I will arrive friday 4PM to New York city, and I realized that B&H and Adorama close 2PM, please do you know where can I buy the new Pentax K3 friday afternoon?

I will have only friday and saturday to buy it and tehn I have to return home.

Many thanks in advance and thank you for let me join this forum.

Leandro

Order it online (Pentax K-3 DSLR Camera (Body Only) 15530 B&H Photo Video) and have it shipped to where you'll be living. All the NYC photo stores that carry Pentax close early and remain closed on Saturday, AFAIK. You can always come in on Sunday, but chances are that the camera will be sold out by then. I just spoke with B&H and they have a very limited inventory on the K-3 (due to a high volume of orders so far).

Unless there are some smaller stores that carry Pentax in NYC (which I'm not aware of, and even if they did exist, they wouldn't have the K-3 yet), you probably won't be able to get a K-3 on Saturday.

That's why I suggest you place a mail order at B&H and have it shipped to wherever you're staying. Make sure you place your order before 4pm (in 45 minutes), otherwise it won't arrive tomorrow!
