Lens deals at B&H and Adorama: Lower than on Black Friday
Posted By: Adam, 03-03-2014, 12:37 PM

As many of you are by now aware from other threads, Pentax has launched some official lens rebates today. This means that many lens prices have dropped significantly, and some are lower than on Black Friday! Most of these deals expire on March 6th, however.

I've prepared a table summarizing the deals on our homepage:
3-Day Pentax Lens Sale - Pentax Deals - PentaxForums.com



Happy LBA-feeding

Yesterday's price for the DA 35 2.4 was $166 at B&H. Today the price is $159.

Picked up the 55-300 HD WR!! The 20-40 is tempting at $846...must say no!!
Congrats on the new zoom! I also am tempted by the 20-40 at $846 but will likely pass right now. I'm afraid that $846 may well be the lowest the lens will sell for, brand-new, through an authorized dealer, although perhaps it will drop to $799 to match the Sigma 18-35 when/if that ever is released... So, though tempting at $846, I think I'd really jump for it if the price ever fell to close to $700 or so. Not holding my breath for the time being...

The point is, that's a further price reduction during the March 3 through March 6 sales period. Now that I think about it, yesterday's price might have been $176, and I think maybe B&H dropped it down even further to compete with Adorama's pricing.

I think that's exactly what happened! They did the same thing over the course of the black friday weekend.

It is very tempting! Not, sure if I should pull the trigger or wait for another sale! I have two more days to ponder!!!

Looks like Adorama ended sale early. I was going to get the 20-40 today. Guess I have to wait.

Looks like it went up to $899 at both stores. But most of the other deals are still live, expiring today.

The FA 31 went back up this morning at Adorama, but dropped again this afternoon. That was enough to get me to pry open my wallet. Happy birthday to me!
