Pentax K-3 Silver still available
Posted By: Adam, 11-29-2013, 11:31 AM

It looks like the demand for the Pentax K-3 silver isn't quite as high as was expected. B&H still has a few kits in stock!

The black version did really well at launch, actually. Possibly better than the K-5 II is doing on black friday, but we'll see!

I have never felt the need for a grip myself - yet if $1000 landed in my lap I'd toss in the extra even if all my lenses are black

Now this kit includes a free 50mm F1.8, just like the regular body. Come on guys- can't believe this is still in stock!

Very envious of this deal. If only it was an Australian store.

They'll ship to Australia for $65, but I think over $1000 you might have to add customs.

I think it looks good in silver as well
I wonder if that brushed metal like for Apple computers or if that's painted.

Yep, the import duties make it probably not worth doing to Aus. Unless you absolutely have your heart set on a silver one, of course.

It's painted, but it's not going to wear off or anything like that.
