Amazon - K30 Kit Deal
Posted By: black-kx, 11-03-2012, 09:32 AM

Amazon has Used-Very good to Like-New K-30 package with 18-135 lens from $745 - $762 with 30day return policy (ships by Amazon)

I watched them and it was around $900 for few weeks and just dropped to $762 for Like-New one... In my opinion it is a steal becasue lens is worth at least $350.

What do you guys think?

Oh, I see, didn't look into it...makes sense now why it is so low
You have to be careful. Search here on the name of the seller, I'm sure you'll find a good bit about Electronics Basket.

These are all very good deals but the more I play with the borrowed K-7 the more I think that maybe I should grab me one of my own at the end of the Summer and then then get a K-30 or a K-5/18-135mm kit down the road a little more, maybe early next year. I'm like a $125 away from having what most people selling them are selling used K-7's bodies now for and if I work at it a little and don't settle for one in pristine condition I might be able to get it for less.

I'm seeing K-7's for like $300-400, K-5's for a bit over $500. That K-30 and 18-135mm kit for like $850, even a bit less. If I do that I'd eventually have two WR, very capable bodies, which is what I really need working pro, plus the K-x for backup. It's going to take me a while yet to get to $850. I do want to go there but was thinking of eventually having 2 semi-pro bodies anyhow and with the K-7 hitting $300 and below it's very tempting to make it that combo.

I would rather have a K-5/K-30 combo but a K-7 would actually do me. These cameras they're dropping prices so rapidly that in a year or two I could end up owning all 3 if I bought at least 2 of them used. :P The only reason I really want the K-30 new is because of that kit, the one with the 18-135mm lens. I'd like at least one camera/lens in my bag to have a warranty and I kind of really need that lens. It's the best digital Pentax lens in that range that I can actually afford. Decisions, decisions, sigh, but I will have to make up my mind soon here. I suppose the state of my wallet come August will dictate what I end up doing but all this dropping of prices it really makes me think hard about what I really need vs what I want and can do with. I never thought I'd see K-7's for $300 and K-5's used for less than $500. This whole new pricing situation it's kind of changing the nature of reality on me here...
