Please help me with Pentax K-x SLR Camera

I am looking to buy a Pentax K-x SLR Camera. Found a few on a shopping price comparison site with prices ranging from $485 to $900. I am new on this model. Anyone can tell why the price different is so big?

Appreciate your help

It comes with different choices of lenses. It will have the standard 18-55mm zoom, plus either a 50-200 telephoto or a 55-300mm telephoto. The 55-300 is worth the extra money over the 50-200, though you will need to get a lens hood for it as well. The version that comes with the camera is designated DAL and has a plastic mopunt and no lens hood.

You can perhaps get a used "regular" 55-300 with metal mount and hood in the marketplace.

Pentax K-x black - $628.95 (Free Shipping - No Tax in most states)
K-x Digital SLR with 18-55mm and 55-300mm Zoom Lenses (Black) - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/pro..._with.html

Also check out this warranty if you like ... genuine Pentax extended warranty

Note: No association with Adorama or B & H, I got the exact same deal from Amazon and have purchased warranty from Adorama.

Also be aware that many online camera companies are in fact scams — the most typical being the too-good-to-be-true price which turns out to be a bait and switch, or only valid if you buy overpriced accessories at the same time.
