K5ii $599 Kmart
Posted By: deepocean, 10-11-2013, 09:30 AM

Hi everyone,

In my search for a camera I came across the K5 ii camera at Kmart for $600. Excellent price I would say. Good luck with this purchase.

That's freaking lame. Why list it at that awesome price and simply say it's unavailable..... That would be an insane deal. I may have to stop off at my local K-Mart tonight and look for myself!

The DA18-55WR "ceiling fan" - if anyone remembers - comes into mind. Though this one seems to be described accurately. That is an excellent price for a K5II with kit lens.

Seems too good to be true. When it comes back in stock I'd be shocked if the price stayed the same.

Yup. Considering that the original K-5 body never dropped below $629, I don't see how this kit could be going for any less than that.

First of all my apologies for not double checking, sneaky Kmart.

Btw out of all threads that I've read here it shows that the K30 has more modern technology. Save the superior body and 1 stop higher Dynamic Range (which is indeed very nice) it seems that the K30 is a better buy. Or do I miss some important information here.

With various things over the last few years I have noticed the same thing with the K-Mart site. After the third or 4th time I simply decided they they throw stuff out to determine a price or their webmaster is as dumb as the one at the pentaxwebstore.com. For that reason I never click on their links anymore. I only spend my time viewing offers from reputable sellers who actually sell the stuff they advertise at the the price they advertise it at.

Top LCD, 14 bit raw, faster continuous FPS/buffering come to mind as well.
