Pentax K-500: $399.99 (33% off)
Posted By: cindaaalynnn, 02-20-2014, 02:33 AM

Groupon: Pentax K-500 16mp Digital SLR Camera Kits - Online

$399.99 for body & kit lens
$449.99 for body, kit lens & 50-200mm

2 days left for this sale.

I'm not sure if it's for all cities- they should all be the same for Groupon?
If any case, this was spotted for the Los Angeles Groupon.

That would be a really bizarre bundle:
tele kit lens without an 18-55.

The image shows the 18-55 on the body in a tele kit,
although the text indeed makes no mention of it.

It definitely comes with the 18-55mm unless they took it out, which is highly unlikely. In the US (and probably everywhere else too) the K-500 isn't available as a body-only.

My mistake!

The $399.99 does include the kit lens whereas the $499.99 includes both the kit & 50mm-200mm

This was in the text when you scroll down:
Pentax K-500 DSLR camera kit:

Pentax K-500 camera
Pentax AA battery holder (D-BH109)
USB cable (I-USB7)
Hotshoe cover FK
Eyecup FR
Body-mount cover
Software CD-ROM S-SW139
Pentax K-500 DSLR camera kit with zoom kit includes all of the above, plus a Pentax 50–200mm zoom lens.

The only bad thing about this great price is that it probably means the k-500 are selling poorly.

I'd hate to see Pentax start ignoring the entry level DSLR market. The main reason I don't own the k-500 instead of my K-50 is the view finder auto focus indicator.
