Strange Pricing at B&H
Posted By: Parallax, 11-16-2013, 11:30 AM

K-5 II with 35mm f2.4 and a $75.00 Gift Card - $1077.95

K-5 II with 50mm f1.8 and a $75.00 Gift Card - $1077.95

K-5 II Body only, no gift card - $1096.95

???

To top it off, the K-5 IIs body only is a hundred bucks less than the K-5 II.

The K-5 II was 899 just a few days ago. Maybe the low cost ones have sold out? No idea.

Maybe the intent is to get rid of the lenses.

Maybe the lens deal pricing from RIAC (after the website pricing error) was extended????? Note - lenses are the two affected in the pricing error.

Nah, those kits were actually set up a while back as per my recommendation. They include the instant rebates that normally apply to bundles, so each lens is very cheap. (116 for the 50, 146 for the 35)

I don't think their buyer cares enough about Pentax to do that... But from what I hear, there will be some amazing deals @ B&H during the black friday weekend.
