Thank you so much for this link! I've never heard of Hunt's before and would never have found this. I've been wishing and waiting to purchase a K-30, and this deal was too sweet to pass up. I ordered a white one, plus a 35 2.4 lens because it was actually in stock and a great price too. I'm too excited! Happy early Mother's Day to me.
Excellent, glad it was useful for you. If you're going to own the camera you might as well pay as little as possible!

They were running a local deal with a further $50 off I believe but the local guy that made me aware of this indicated that it was for local pickup.

Amazon had kit w/18-135 WR lens

Prices have been going up and down for this one but it at lowest now.

$757.41

Amazon.com: Buying Choices: Pentax K-30 Weather-Sealed 16 MP CMOS Digital SLR with 18-135mm Lens (Black)

They offer 30day free returns

(I bought mine about 6 months ago when they had like 5 of the sets and prices dropped and then they were all gone in one day)-mine was also "like-new" and shutter count was only 218...


Good buy if you want the 18-135mm lens

That's warehouse though, no warranty because it's considered used, I believe. Good price but no warranty on a basically new cam. Might as well go grey market and pay even less probably.

True, this NEW package, even with DAL 18-55 is a steal.

I really like the white one...


But when I bought mine (November 2012), K-30 Body only were over $600 new; and I paid $760 for K-30 & 18-135mm WR.

So I am pretty happy with my buy (I ended up selling my 18-135mm on ebay, and after shipping and selling fees, I got about $350) That brought my K-30 body to about $400


Also, my email receipt from Amazon does not indicate condition of the camera, so I have it for warranty issues (should I ever need it) - it was not grey market, came in original box.

Hunt's Photo and Video

As of this morning the K-30 kit is in stock and on sale [$499.00] and comes with a $50.00 rebate [$449.00]. I had the choice of buying online or on the phone and I opted for online. I will soon be the happy owner of a K-30 'storm-trooper.' Buy one while they are still in stock and while the rebate is still active [expires 05/11]. I cannot wait...

I have a K-30. This is an unbelievable deal. The K-30 was already the best bang for the buck before this. Anyone considering this camera, just do it!

Unfortunately, only the white is available with the 18-55mm lens. And I can't see any code to be applied at checkout...

It seems to be by phone only. How did you get the online option? And are you sure these are not demo or used cameras?

Just talked to a rep over the phone - rebate is from Hunt's, active till tomorrow including. You can order online, rebate form will be included in the box. Ordered one, actually previously ordered blue, then canceled, now knowing it's even $50 cheaper ordered white...Seems like I have a problem...GAS?
