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

Purchased it

Well, I pulled the trigger on this one. Got the Pentax K-3 w/18-135 lens kit, which included the DA 50/1.8, the BG-5 battery kit, and the 32GB SDHC card. Also purchased the DA 35/2.4 lens at the same time, getting another $35.00 off, for a total of $146.50 with that, as well, of course, as the Pentax extended warranty (2 years). I know you can't calculate it this way, but adjusting for fun, and subtracting the B&H prices for the lenses, the grip and the warranty and guessing about the value the memory card ($20-$25?), the price for the K-3 body ends up around $685.00. I also used my Costco AMEX card, which means I get another $18.00 bucks back at the end of the day, so it seems like a good deal to me.

Despite the pic, this price does NOT include the 18-135mm. Just a heads up for those considering it.

ok, I'm pissed. I purchased the B&H package before Christmas, it had all of this except the grip, had camera bag instead. I think the grip is a better deal and higher cost.

I remember in the last thread, someone mentioned that they'll honor this if you bought within some time frame. Anyone have those details?

edit: here it is:
QuoteQuote:
B&H will match any promotion or discount price that goes on for an item you purchased within the last 30 days. It's their way of not punishing customers for buying early.

If I can show it existed they'll give me the grip

edit:

Just called and they're shipping out a battery grip. I guess we'll truly see when the order page updates and I get a tracking number, but the phone call certainly ended on a positive note.

Cmon, man. In Europe you will never ever see deals like this. For this price you get only K3 body. We are pissed to see deals not available in this side of ocean.

Yup. I bit and got hooked. I guess I was only needing an excuse, though to be fair I never upgraded to K5ii or K5iis... It's my time and I'm stoked!

K3repeat deal

I purchased this deal the first time around, just wanted to applaud B&H for their great incentives.

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.)

Well done, guys! It looks like B&H has run out of K-3's (bodies, not 18-135mm kits) for now, which means that they sold several dozen of them today. But I can't believe that the silver K-3 is still around!

It looks like the deal is still in play, for the K-3, w/18-135 WR lens, which is the one I purchased. That is B&H # PEK3K. The combination (PEK3Z), also shows in stock, albeit without the grip. The grip shows that it is "Back Ordered".
