K-5 Dual-Lens Bundle Price Drop - $889
Posted By: rickn, 05-27-2013, 05:25 AM

Adorama has dropped the price of the K-5 bundled with the 18-55 WR and 50-200 WR by $10. That makes this deal $889 and you can also buy the 2 year extended warranty at the time of purchase for only $4.95 ($15. savings). 2% on future purchases. Free shipping.

Do they cut your lawn? Wow, this is tempting!

The market must think that this price is still too high, considering that they haven't sold out of K-5's yet. Strange!

Might say something about how many old model cameras are struck in supply chains. And not just Pentax. ...there's a seemingly endless supply of older model Canikon down here in Oz.

Tempting, but doesn't the K-5 II and K-5 IIs being out for awhile now make it harder to consider buying a new K-5? Especially since the K-5 is an older model and to resell it used later on will drop even faster in value?

Well, yes. Which is why they keep dropping the price. Until supply and demand are both about zero ....
