Pentax K-50 : $479!
Posted By: Adam, 12-20-2013, 11:56 AM

Wow, this is the lowest I've seen the K-50 to date at an authorized dealer: $479.00.

The lower price is live because of the mixup last weekend: they accidentally pulled the $499 offer early because one of their buyers thought it was a mistake. I guess an extra $20 off makes up for it!

OK, I couldn't resist at this price for a black body-only K-50 from an authorized and respected dealer. Plus I'll be supporting PentaxForums because I used the "click through" banner to access B&H! So, a win for all! Very excited and can't wait to get my hands on my new K-50-- should be a big leap for me coming from my old K-x....

Darn......, ordered the K50 on the $499 deal last weekend, and received it last night (in Australia).

But, I still think I got a good deal (this one is only slightly better).

So I'm not complaining, and thanks for the heads up Adam.

You could also call BH photo video and see if they do a price match. Question is whether it is worth 20 bucks :-)

Ooohhh.... that is a great price and SO tempting! I could sell on my K-r twin kit and step up to a K-50 to be used with my DA* and LTD lenses...

What to do?!?!?!?!

just noticed your signature line. not sure why you need k-50 if you have k-5. k-r is a smaller body than k-50

In that case you could have sold the K-r, the K-5 and got a K-5 IIs OR sold the two and put in some of the money spent on this K-50 and got a K-3!!

Yes, this is true but I've promised myself to get off the buying and selling G.A.S. wagon, and only buy gear once I've saved up enough pocket-money to afford it. If after the purchase another piece of gear becomes redundant I can sell it and put the money back into the pocket-money pool, but I'm sworn off selling gear purely to fund another purchase. It's very difficult when deals like this pop up, but I'm trying hard!

Good for you! More power to you. I have tamed my LBA for now but really felt the need to scratch the CBA itch...
