Pentax Kx Price Tracking:
Posted By: InfinitySL, 05-08-2010, 08:14 PM

I didn't see a Kx pricing thread, so I'm creating a new one. If there is one that exists already, feel free to merge this with that one.. Anyway, I am seeing the Kx (with 18-55mm Kit Lens) on Amazon for $463.95. That's the lowest I've seen it for by far. Located HERE.

Make sure that when you click into the Kx page, and "add to cart" you are clicking on the camera sold by amazon (off to the right) as shown in the screenshot below...

I just sold a black K-x kit with 4GB SD card, tripod and camera bag for 350. And no, it wasn't used but mint in box with two-week old receipt. SRS, the best UK seller, has something similar now for 409, but sans tripod. That should help baseline a price in this part of the world.

Dunno about that. ATM the 2 lens kit including the 55-300mm is $628.95 at Amazon. Wow, that's about $90 cheaper than I bought it July 18.

Thought I would bump this thread. I just ordered a K-x/55-300 kit from Adorama for the $628.95 price above earlier today. I needed the longer zoom and wanted to go back to having 2 Pentax bodies (right now have just one and 2 Olympus Pen bodies, going to reverse that!).

Anyway, the reason for the bump is this: Epson is running a $450 rebate on their R1900 photo printer when you buy it at the same time (they have to be on the same receipt, FYI!) as a qualifying DSLR from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus and yes, Pentax! The printer retails for $469, and is quite well rated (several hundred reviews on adorama and BH). I figured since I was close to buying another K-x and a long zoom, the almost free printer is icing on the cake!

Now onto making room for the K-5...how much do they want for it again?!

Portable Guy on Amazon has the K-x body for $440, $40 lower than Adorama. (Higher than Tri-state, which I don't trust--maybe unwarranted?). Has anyone purchased from Portable Guy? Any feedback?

Thanks!

Earlier last week I got a white k-x with the 18-55 lens at BuyDig for $475 (free shipping, no tax) with a $10 off coupon code (which sadly escapes me; found it on retailmenot, I think).

Was hoping the price would drop with the k-r release, but still, not bad!

Got a 2 lens kit k-X (18-55 and 55-300) from ebay prodigital2000 for $660. The closest price I saw is on Amazon - Portable guy for $670 . Portable guy actually had it for $635 and Adorama had it for $650 about a week or 2 ago, but I missed out on that.

But... I couldn't wait. Placed my order last saturday, and its now en route to me. Counting the days till I get to play with my camera.

Nice one! A very capable camera with two fine zoom lenses. The DA55-300 is all I ever need over 100mm. It truly is a fantastic value for money proposition! At at you price it's like it was thrown in for free.

Amazon has had this kit for $628 a few times in the past couple of months. I am hoping it'll go down again on Thanksgiving.
