B&H has just modified their Pentax K-3 kit to include a free grip, 50mm lens, and a 32gb memory card.

Here it is:

I have the impression (after reading the warranty at B&H) that Adorama may have a better warranty. Am I wrong?

I tend to believe what Adam says. I just purchased the K3 with the battery grip. I purchased it through the link on this forum. I hope the forum gets the credit.

I would have a hard time pulling trigger on this without the 50mm of the old deal. Once I saw that deal hard to settle for less.

You are not alone It appears many folks would pull the trigger if the 50mm 1.8 was thrown in. Is it?

It is K3 with BG5 Grip or 50mm 1.8 this time around. But these are good deals for folks who already have the 50mm 1.8. But I am sure they wouldnt mind an extra 50mm in their pockets

Or else sell the da50 new in box for an extra $200 discount.

That must have been the sweetest deal to date by anyone for a K3-- Grip+da50+32gb card).

Haha, I just purchased the k3 with the 18-135 mm lens and battery grip from B&H last week. I didn't get the promotion with the SD card and 50mm lens due to them being out of stock. So I purchased the camera kit full Retail with out the free items. They would not Honor the promotion and send me the lens when it came in though. (I could pre order, but would have to wait for everything. I didn't want to wait being the camera was in Stock). But I figured I'd be better if I had any issues with the camera buying from an AD. Rather than from Amazon. I emailed them this morning and am waiting to see if they will credit my card for the price of the grip. If not, I'll send everything back and spend my money where it is appreciated..

I thought I'd post this hear also.
Quoted :
"Hello , my name is Peter K:

Thank you for contacting the Customer Service Department at B&H Photo Video and Pro Audio.

I am sorry to hear about this issue. We will refund you for the grip since it is being offered as a free item with the camera now. Please allow 3-5 business days for the money to be back on your account.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Thank you, we appreciate your business. "

Again thank you Adam for bringing this to my attention. Also Thank you to B&H for making this painless for me. You have a life long customer!!

Adam,

I ordered the package from B&H with the link on this Thread, so let me know if you guys don't get Site Credit for the purchase.

Great deal with the 50mm, BG and 32gb Sandisk! Thanks for updating this on PF so I could take advantage of it.

Please PM me your web order number, which is the number that begins with the 1. B&H updates their systems with a 24-hour+ delay, so no rush as I won't be able to see it until tomorrow at the earliest.
