Finding Pentax k-x kit from Los Angeles


Iīm a Finnish guy coming to Los Angeles next week. Iīm planning to buy a new Pentax k-x kit with 18-55mm and 55-300mm lenses from LA. Where I can find it? It says in bestbuys webpage that they sell it only online and I could not find that kit either from Samysīcameras website. Iīm staying there (near Venice beach) only 3 days so I cant order it online. I would be very happy if someone could help me with this.

Hello Jolzi,

You can try Fry's Electronics. There's one in Manhattan Beach. It's a few miles south of LAX. Although the K-x isn't listed on their site, I have seen the K-x on display at the City of Industry location. I don't remember if they were selling the 55 - 300mm lens kit. So, if Samy's doesn't have it, then Fry's is probably your next best bet.

Pretty sure there are tons of Cali Pentaxians, there may be someone who lives near where you would be staying and be kind enough to order the 18-55/55-300 kit and hold it until you come to pick it up.

Thanks guys for your answers!

It seems that I canīt get that kit what I was planning to buy at first place because companys donīt deliver online orders to hotels and they donīt have that kit at stores. My trip starts in three days and I still have lots of preparing to do here so it might be also too difficult to try to do what LeDave suggested. My new plan is to buy k-x with 18-55mm lens and some used telephoto lens.

Call the store close to where you're staying let them know when, where and how long you're staying and kindly ask them to order the kit for you...pick it up when you get there.

These are in that vicinity:
