Cheap K-5 at Lensagrafita?
Posted By: cpho, 12-30-2012, 01:58 AM

Hi everyone,
I'm looking to jump onto the Pentax boat, and google found me a very cheap K-5 body only, however it does seem suspicious.

Pentax K-5 Digital SLR Camera Body Only - Lensa Grafita

For $603 AUD (not inc. delivery), it's more than $100 cheaper than anywhere I've ever seen before.
What do you guys think?
Price breakthrough or a pit to throw money in?

The lowest price I've seen on a K5 body only is $699 at buydig.com I just purchased the body and kit lens (18-55mm) for $849 which is a steal in my opinion from buydig. (Also known as beachcamera). I've seen new K5's with kit lenses going for over $1,200 on ebay. Nobody's buying those of course, but yet that's the price they're asking.

My personal opinion - if you are trying to save $100 to buy from an unknown vendor in Indonesia, you would be better off not buying anything at all.

Just buy from BuyDig (Beach Camera) if you live in the USA. They're selling the K-5 body for $699, with $15 off using the coupon code DigFall15. Free FedEx shipping. That's $684, shipped - $65 less than Amazon. I don't think you're going to find a better deal on a brand new K-5 in the States right now.

Yep that's what I did. I didn't know about the $15 dollar coupon but I'm happy with the price regardless. I haven't seen anyone selling a K5 kit for less than $849. You can purchase either kit lens too. The 18-55mm or the 50-200mm for the same price. Although you get a free camera bag and SD card with the 50-200mm lens.
