Pentax K-5 IIs: $699 at B&H
Posted By: Adam, 01-20-2014, 12:38 PM

B&H has decided to put up a sale on the K-5 IIs: it's now available for $699, or $300 off the list price. Enjoy!

Pentax K-5 IIs Digital SLR Camera 12050 B&H Photo Video

Edit: as of 1/29, only a handful of cameras remain before they're gone for good, so act fast if you want this.

Thanks but the tax on amazon purchases kills though! I would be paying $70 in taxes alone. Bhphoto and Adorama dont charge me that extra. Living in the nanny state I should know by now........

and if you use the redirect links from this site, your purchase supports the site where as shopping on amazon does not.

B&H has a very limited quantity of these left- they've sold hundreds since the deal went live and once it's gone, it will be gone for good. (the K-5 II/IIs is discontinued)

I picked one up too. Just couldn't resist. What an upgrade coming from k100d, I'm amazed at how well it focuses and how much better the images are.

You do know that even if you don't have to pay sales tax on those purchases, you are still supposed to be declaring your purchases and paying use tax, right? That's true in almost all the states including the entire Deep South and famously conservative Idaho.

No "Nanny State" about it.

This $699 deal "expires on 1/31" according to B&H's web site. Not sure if it will sell out before then, but they might bump up the price afterward.

I just pulled the plug and ordered one. I have never been through a more exhaustive search in my life. I literally spent 9 months looking for a camera. I must have looked at 10,000 pictures through flickr.

I was down to the D7100, 70D, and Pentax K5II or K3. I missed out on the K5II black Friday deal since I procrastinated to long. Glad I did since I wanted the K5IIs.

I liked the lense selection overall on the Nikon but the oil/dust issue on the D7100 turned me off.

I liked the touch and swivel screen but hated the dynamic range and ISO performance. Liked the zooms but the primes were just ok.

I picked the K5IIs due to the weather seal and IQ. The colors just pop. I don't like the zooms due to the SDM issue. However, the primes kept me coming back and back and back. I'm going the prime route for the most part.

I am now in the Pentax club and I want to thank the members of this site for all the information that they provide.

Haha, I think I have just made a very similar decision. Although I had chance to use my brothers k30 lately, I have been following Flickr and this forum very close for the last 8 moths. I have had exact same list of cameras and k5lls with DA-50mm won my decision. I placed my order yesterday and now can't wait to get it!
Cheers!

Congrats on your new purchases! k5iis is a mind blowing toy.New users into Pentax system resonate and remind me of 2008! With no background in photography I purchased a used K10D from a forum member. I am helluva thankful for this forum. Just the other day I was playing with friends Nikon D5200. It is a great camera but doesnt even come close to my K10D as a photographic tool. No way.D7100 was good though. Long story short, I love this forum and the work Adam and team are doing.

I got mine a week ago. Amazing camera and rock solid. I rented Canon and Nikon counterparts and the quality of the K5IIS beats them all. Very happy with my purchase.
