K-5 kit $1662.11 at B&H
Posted By: Adam, 11-06-2010, 05:56 PM

I'm going to go ahead and start a new thread for this, as this seems like a pretty significant drop. Basically, the K-5 kit has fallen from $1749.95 to $1662.11 at B&H.

Pentax K-5 Digital SLR Camera W/18-55mm Zoom Lens (Black) 14762

Considering that the lens can easily be sold for $150, it looks like you can save up to $90 on the body!

Adorama's price remains unchanged, as it Amazon's.

Nope, I have four. Includes one WR and one "red" associated with the K-X.

They make fine paperweights.

And will have to go on some older bodies when I sell them ....

At the worst you could sell the 18-55 for $75, still break even, and really make someone's day!

Looks like the price went back up- don't ask me why, but you guys should have taken it while it was hot
