Is it my imagination?

Is it my imagination or is the price of the K-3 going "up"?
The last I saw the price on BH it was $649.00 and now it is $695.00

yup, residue black friday/holiday sales are gone finally. Interestingly, it is basically the same price as the K-3 ii now

Stock is probably running low.

That was my initial thought too.. but B&H, Adorama, and Amazon all have their prices the same. Unless they are all bouncing off B&H pricing..

Could be stock running low, or the fact that both the K-3 and K-3ii are getting near the end of their life cycle and the market is determining that the value of the K-3 is slightly greater than the K-3ii for the majority of users.

The K-3ii is hindered by the lack of a small controller flash, or small strong-featured flash option of any kind. Given that the K-3 has that feature, it tends to outweigh the narrower added features offered in the K-3ii.
