That is an amazing pair. Beats out the D7000 and 18-140 deal.

Yup, this is an amazing deal. It's the cheapest the K-5 has ever been sold for at a retailer.

They're virtually the same camera. The K-5 IIs doesn't have an optical low pass filter, so it's slightly sharper when paired with ultra-sharp primes. But at $599...the K-5 II is better!

I suppose there's zero chance of the K3 getting marked down?

While nice, this isn't much lower than the 700, Adam!

100 less and I'd be all over this. Actually.. 50 less and I'd consider it.

There won't be any drops on the K-3, at least not at B&H or Adorama. Pentax isn't budging on the MAP price.

Shoot was hoping for some discount on K-3 and if not then the K-5 IIs. Hmm . . . What to do . . . This is about half the price of the K-3 kit and could use the difference towards a FA 31, which I noticed is at 966.95. Is 966.95 a Black Friday price for the FA 31?

Also, Is the extended warranty good on this, on B&H says the extended warranty is discontinued, but on Adorama says they have it and it's good for all current cameras. With this being a Fire Sale is it still considered current??

EDIT: Found the same extended warranty on B&H that Adorama has, so is it good for this camera being a Fire Sale?

Extended warranty is good since B&H is an authorized dealer. Make sure to get one, it is a no-brainer option.

The extended warranty is still around, just under a different SKU:
Pentax 2-Year Extended Warranty for Pentax and Ricoh 85716 B&H

And yes, that's the BF price for the 31mm. More details here:
