Pentax (Europe) to finance @ 0% - 645Z with 5,000 on lenses

QuoteQuote:
Ricoh Imaging Europe has announced details of its new interest-free credit offer on the Pentax 645Z camera and Pentax medium-format lenses. The offer is valid from now until 10 January 2015, and you can claim 12 months interest free credit when you spend a minimum of 5,000 on lenses, 18 months credit when you shell out at least 10,000, or 24 months if you spend a minimum of 15,000 on the Pentax 645Z and lenses.

Interesting. This is the first time I've seen Pentax do this kind of financing deal for their cameras.

It's not surprising. Ricoh do the same for customers who want to buy their office equipment. As do Canon.

It's never really interest-free. You pay for the loan in the deal price of the camera and lenses.

If you pay cash you have to account for opportunity cost (what you would have earned with the money otherwise), so nothing is ever really money-cost free.

Yes but that applies to everything in life not just cameras.

I think it's a great way to start from scratch - providing you can get the lenses you want. Prices are normal UK prices: 6799, so more than US price but this is depressingly normal. I tried hard not to look at the Japanese price when I was in Tokyo earlier in the year. Failed. around 2k cheaper than what I paid, but by then I had had 2 months of great usage from it.
