Not sure where these prices are advertised, but it appears to be in-store only, not online.

Just want to clarify for those that haven't found the actual product ads on their website for this sale (it's not easily found)

The K500 is $499.95 up front, with a $120 Hunt's Mail in Rebate, and also includes the $20 cell phone trade in credit with an ending price of $359.95.

Can you give us the URL? It seems to be very hard to find.

Thanks so much! It clarifies a few things, like the Sigma rebate requires a trade-in lens.

I was all set to get the adorama K-50 deal but this K-500 deal for 359 is killer. I know I do not need the WR as I shoot mostly inside. If only the focus points were visible...That's my main concern with the K-500. Can you still select the focus point manually?

If it works like the K-x then you can select the focus point on the rear LCD.

Hmm I tend to think that the K-50 bundle deal is a better one than this right now. Yeah you gotta pay $696.95 up front, but if you subtract the $200 Adorama gift card you're getting, you're down to $496.95. If you use that 5% off Adorama code from Adam's other thread, it takes another $25 off bringing you down to $471.95. And you're not only getting a K-50 w/ 18-55mm DA L WR lens (WIth Weather Sealing that you're not getting on a K-500), you get the Pentax sling bag, 2 year extended warranty and the 32GB SD card as well.

Just my $.02.

Good points. Plus you can add the 50mm for $116 and make it even a better deal.

Hunts says that the 50mm F1.8 is on special too but I cannot find it on the website.

They are both great deals. I would probably get the K-500 if the focus points were visible. WR is meaningless to me to be honest.

I look at WR as one of those "It's better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it".

I plan to bring my K-30 to the beach, hiking and outside to take pictures of my son in the snow. Couldn't really do all of that with a K-500 without being paranoid.

k500 kit $357.95 plus 50mm f1.8

On the front page of the show flyer under the k500 it says "add a pentax 50mm f1.8 to camera purchase and get a $130. pentax instant rebate!"
Or why not just call them? I got it for $107.
