Ritz camera Pentax clearance

Just thought you'd like to know that Ritz camera has a few Pentax items on clearance including the K20d along w/several lenses.

Clearance - RitzCamera.com

I pulled the trigger on the 18-250 lens for $340.00. Seems like quite a bang for the buck!

Their clearance price is the same as Amazon's normal price. They are still overpriced.

I agree that Ritz is overpriced.

However, the Amazon price is through Ritz camera. In fact, I purchased this lens through Amazon so that I could deal with them instead of Ritz in case of a problem.

I've had Ritz renege a previous order some time ago, claiming they had run out of an item after I purchased it when it was indicated as in stock. That, and their current financial condition prompted me to order it through Amazon instead of the Ritz website. I figure I may have some leverage through Amazon if there's a problem.

611 for that DA*16-50 isn't bad at all! I see some people sell their DA* 16-50's for 600 used here. I would be on that if I had some cash on me. Some of their things are still expensive such as their K20D and so forth, but the deal on their DA 18-250 and DA* 16-50 isn't bad at all.

FYI, if you go to bing.com/cashback and search stores under W you can get an additional 5% cashback through wolfcamera, which is just also ritz with the same deals (ritz camera is not apart of the cashback program at the moment though, weird!).

Edit - nevermind ritz is on there too, so 5% cashback through bing - not bad.

$24 for the Pentax D-L150 batteries is not bad. The opinions are that these batteries are smarter and may have a longer life than any of the knockoffs and third party batteries.
I'm just sayin'.

The word is indeed "renege". "Reneg" is not a word acording to Webster's:

renege - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

Note the fine print on most of that stuff: Even though it may be in a box and have a warranty, it may have been a demo or have dings and nicks, etc.
