K-r selling cheaper than K-x?
Posted By: K57XR, 04-03-2011, 08:28 AM

I saw these at Best Buy's website and thought it's a little strange. Same kit lens, neither on sale, I think?

PENTAX - K-r 12.4-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera - Black - K-r Two Lens Kit

PENTAX - K-x 12.4-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera 2-Lens Kit - Black - K-x with 18-55mm & 50-200mm Lenses

Same price as B&H: Pentax K-r Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm and 50-200mm 14650

They're definitely on their way down, as the K-x has been discontinued and the K-r is its direct successor.

The k-x is a better camera from what I've read, so that is probably why. K-r is apparently having some issues. Too lazy to go and dig up the articles that I read.

Edit: But yea...that k-x price is too high.
