bundle

QuoteOriginally posted by abacus07 Quote
In this case I don't think you would be able to. This $30 off doesn't extend to the bundled package that most probably got. I've been waiting to order for a couple of reasons but I will probably pay the $346 to get the extra battery, SD card and camera case. I could really use the extra battery and you can never have too many SD cards.
Exactly right, the Adorama Bundle is not discounted now. I bought mine yesterday before the extra $30 off but I can actually use the stuff in the Bundle, so it is not a loss. I especially like that the SD card is a SanDisk class 10, not a throw-away.

It was a steal at $349.00 (bought mine at Crutchfield, as everyone else sold out at that price - still the same price there today).... at $319.00 - not dirt cheap - dirt is way more expensive!
But I appreciated THoog's 'brick in the hand" comment - I've easily had $30 worth of fun with mine already. Murphy's Law applied to Electronics - whatever you just got on sale today will be cheaper tomorrow! Remember how much you enjoyed it today.

This is a true thing you guys say :P My bundle had the 16 GB class 10 SDHC card in it which goes for an average price of $25 anyway :P No such thing as too much storage space! I got my last 16GB at a full price premium - racing from the wedding ceremony to the wedding reception with a stop at Best Buy cause I'd filled the sixteen gig card I had with me....just shooting the ceremony event. It was a looooong wedding!

Back in September when the first instant rebate got the K-01 w/ lens into the $600 range, we were talking about the $250 lens with the $350 rear lens cap that could be used as a (darned good) camera, and what a bargain that was. Of course, we all want to spend our money wisely, but rather than fret over thirty bucks, I'd still rather gloat over the awesome deal I got on a lens cap.

Lol! If the Pentax Q cap lens were out already, that joke would be even better!

I got quite a bit, actually. Hope that cap lens comes out soon- it'll be an industry first.

Arghhh! Finally decided to order from B&H but their site isn't accepting anymore orders for like 24 hours. My quest to get a white K-01 with the 40mm lens goes unfulfilled yet again.

Yeah, I was ebaying "Genuine Pentax rear lens cap" for some of my old glass when I realized a K 01 would be cheaper.

Can I still claim my digital camera virginity if I only use it to keep my K and M glass clean for use on my ME Super and MX?

Welllllllll, there are those that claim because it doesn't have an optical viewfinder, it's more of a doorstop than a camera, so you might have a chance there.

Some of you might also pass off the K-01 as a storage device for your spare LI-90 battery works for me!

You can even check your battery charge with it - double duty!

OK, just ordered the white body from Adorama for $316. It's currently backordered just like my other order from Best Buy from well over a week ago. Whoever ships first doesn't get cancelled. Been trying to get this camera since October 26th. This has been such an ordeal and it's still not over...
