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:

Just want to share that B&H messed up my reward amount. It was not 4%. I am not sure if this is an intention or not but the rep does not give me a satisfied answer.
As you may guess, the price of the body only is much less than the $1300 tag. Also the reward amount is based on the "actual" value of individual items.
With that said, if we add up all the value of those accessories and the body we will get the $1296

I have bought from B&H and Adorama before and the products were advertised as returning 4% rewards credit toward a future purchase. I never got anything. I rather get a good deal at the time of purchase than a promise. Better bird in hand, than fish in water.

Yes, you are right. It happened to me and I have to contact them to get it fixed. What a hassle

I just wanted to update.

I originally purchased the k3 with the 18-135 mm lens. (they were out of stock with the promotion for the SD card and 50mm lens. The they said in order to get the "package" deal I needed to wait for the other items to be in Stock, to get the "whole" deal. I didn't want to wait do I just ordered the camera with the 18-135 lens. And paid full retail. I also purchased the grip along with it.

Adam, Let me know that (this was a week later) Tha the package just popped back up with "everything" included. (grip, SD card, 50mm lens).

I politely sent them an email and they not only Sent me the SD card, 50mm lens, but they also put the difference of the grip back on my credit card. No questions asked or hagiling for that matter.

In my opinion you just can't get better customer service than that. The best part is, I never even had to call, all done by email. I would also like to say that when you do email them, unlike any other businesses, they got back to me with in hours if not sooner.

Two of my orders were priority overnight and for some reason ups in NJ, both times screwed me and I didn't get my purchases for three to four days. (I'm only 2 1/2 hours away). I contacted B&H through email and both times my credit card was reimbursed for the hiring, along with a Sincere apology.

The problem was not even on B&H end, but they still took care of me. Can't get any better than that.

I just ordered a new photo printer and accessories from them, just for them being so understanding and professional with my dealings. Customer for life.

Looks like this deal is still around, even those most of the other lens deals have been pulled.

Haha, I did the same thing and they are only two hours from me. If your anything like me, it will be like a kid in the candy store!!! I was driving my wife nuts because I could not sleep, along with my phone going off every hour on the hour from the tracking updates...

Enjoy your new camera. I'm still in awe, every time I pic it up.

I pulled the trigger on this one! She'll be mine on Monday! Is it cheating to already have a K-3 signature?
