Note: the free grip offer has now ended, however you still get the 50mm and SD card for free.

If anyone buying this deal doesn't need their grip and wants to make back some cash send me a PM
(I missed both of these deals as I got my K-3 a bit earlier.)
I just ordered this deal from B&H this evening -- I'm not a huge fan of battery grips, but given that it is included, I will certainly give it a try to see if I like it. If I don't end up using it, then I would likely be willing to sell it. Give me a week to see how it handles with/without.

Cheers
Michael

battery grips
I'd like them better if it held the remote like the K-20 grip. It's the main reason I don't have one for the K-5.

I applaud B&H also for putting up this deal. I received my K3 with the lens and bag combo and I'm happy. Sure wish I had the grip. Well I can always save a little next month!

This certainly made me purchase the K-3 sooner than originally planned. Not sure if I will keep either the grip or 50mm since I rarely need it. Hopefully it will arrive before my mini trip!

I swore I'd wait for the K-3 to sell for $999 before buying it. Well, this is the deal! I don't need the lens and unless the grip feels better in my hand than the K-20 grip did I will be passing that on too. That gets my K-3 price below $999 if my calculations are approximately correct.

Best of all----- I ordered this package from B&H yesterday late morning and it is on the UPS truck right now heading for my door. Talk about instant gratification.

Kudos to B&H for a great deal and great shipping practices.

But I can't believe that the silver K-3 is still around!
I'd guess it has to do with the pairing of Pentax's most expensive K mount camera with one of their cheapest lenses.

Of the few who can afford to buy a K-3 and are willing to pay extra for silver, even fewer are interested in the comparatively pedestrian DA-50.

The lens is free though- so they could sell it if they wanted!
