Pentax K-5 IIs for $696.95 (deal is back)
Posted By: Adam, 02-23-2014, 03:40 PM

It looks like Adorama has reinstated the $696.95 deal on the K-5 Iis:


Pentax K-5 IIs Digital SLR Camera Body 12050

Includes a 4% reward and free shipping.

Freight and exchange rate do kill the appeal of this deal for Aussies but Pentax.com.au have some pretty good deals on K3 when compared with the US

Yes, and no local warranty.
Not in the market for a K-3 though, there's nothing there for me.

Agree, Pentax AU seems to be doing nothing of late, all these greats in the US re the K5iis, mx1, Q10/7...

I just got an email from DCC (DirtCheapCameras) with special pricing (Just for you) on some dSLRs.

Look at this bargain price for the K-5ii in Australia ► Pentax K-5 II <face palm>

Unfortunately most Aussie retailers are still expecting outrageous amounts for the K5ii/k5ii(s).

It's also US$699.99 from Prodigital2000's ebay store: NEW Pentax K 5 IIS Digital SLR Camera Body Only K 5IIS DSLR NO AA Filter 027075220737 | eBay

Maybe a better choice for Canadians as it's free shipping and we get the 2-year Canadian Warranty. Up to about a week ago they were listing one per day as auctions starting at US$679.99. Many went by with no bids, I picked up one of the last listed this way. Only mentioning this as you can 'Make an Offer' on the 'Buy It Now' listing.

The camera is back down to $697:
Pentax K-5 IIs Digital SLR Camera Body 12050

It seems like the price changes every other day...

I wonder if it could possibly fall any more. I've been thinking about upgrading from my K-5. I just got it Christmas 2012.

(Or instead get the the Pentax 12-24mm on sale that I think would be better than my Sigma 10-20mm f4... urgh! )

It will probably sell out at this price.
