Pentax K-3 Silver + Free 50mm Lens & Card
Posted By: Adam, 12-22-2013, 11:30 AM

Now you can get a free 50mm with the silver K-3. Can't believe these are still in stock!

Black Rapid strap is the only way to go. Just go mine and I wonder why I never got one before!! Attaches to my tripod mount and away I go like a gun slinger!

A couple dozen at B&H last time I checked, but it could be less now.

I wish there would be a black k-3 bundle with battery grip... I'm just worried the gold on my DA*s and DCs will clash the silver... Argh.

if only they would.....

If only they would bundle this limited edition with any of those silver limited babies ( primes), on a good pricepoint and discount comparable to the current deal at adorama (upto $600 savings on a k3 bundle) i would get mime in a heatbeat.

The UK only got 50 Silver SEs and one is sat here in front of me... it looks great to my eyes in a world where everyone else's DSLR is black and looks the same, I happened to have some cash spare at the right time for once.
Like Stens I grew up when almost all cameras were silver and black, but there was a marketing ploy to sell all black cameras to "look like a Pro" ---and the black versions usually cost more.
The silver K-3 catches the light differently from the dull black standard finish and it shows off the lines and angles...if you've only ever seen one in a video than that is no way to judge.
Ugly?? "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" they say, I like the looks of this camera, BUT it's more important that I am increasingly happy with the results I am getting with it. (I MIGHT even post a couple of pictures when I get something I am really happy with!)

One other issue to be somewhat concerned about. Some critical macro studio light work requires all black cameras so no light bounces of the camera (silver) to unduly interfere with the lighting on the subject!

Now showing as discontinued. Good thing for me. Even though I got the black one, I was still being tempted. If it had ever been bundled with a silver lens, I would have been in trouble.
