$689 K-30 @ AMAZON (Body Only)
Posted By: Heie, 08-30-2012, 03:14 PM

I haven't seen this posted, but I just came across this and had to refresh the page to make sure I wasn't being fooled. Pentax K-30 Weather-Sealed 16 MP CMOS Digital SLR (Black, Body Only): Camera & Photo

This is for the BLACK body only - the other two are regular price, sadly.

And if you couple that with a standalone lens (if you still want the kit), here: Pentax 21977 DA 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 ED AL (IF) DC WR Lens for Pentax Digital SLR cameras: Electronics

Then you save $50!

While that isn't significant, the body definitely is, and if you have been on the fence about it, this seems like an amazing opportunity.

Happy Shopping

It has been posted...

Note: this is NOT amazon but a 3rd party retailer. They are NOT an authorized Pentax dealer and thus does not qualify for the additional warranty.

Also note the K-30 is supposed to get a 50 dollar discount starting on Sept 1st.. so I'm hoping no one buys from the 3rd parties and the price stays low until then. The price has been decreasing for a little over a week now... I've watched it daily... I suspect due to low sales.

Would stink if you all bought now and rose the price.. that is how amazon seems to work since they run off of pricing 'bots' -- They lower their price when stuff doesn't sell and raise it when it does.. seen it many times in the past.

Wait until Saturday if you can.

edit: Amazon doesn't seem to be participating in the instant rebate deal and the discount is on MAP anyways which isn't so hot.. buy if you want it.. this is the cheapest place.
