K-5 at Adorama and BH - $999!
Posted By: Adam, 03-20-2012, 08:30 AM

Adorama has dropped the price of the K-5 to $999, finally! The kit is $1099. They told me this goes until 3/31.

Lol, all these places are cutting prices to $999. Wonder if it is to get people to buy the camera in the last few days of the sale. Wonder what happens to the price in April ?

It looks like Pentax simply dropped the MSRP of the K-5 by $200, and that of the Q by $100. Die, markup!
