Pentax AF-540 FGZ for $399 ?
Posted By: Tighelander, 03-30-2014, 11:50 PM

B&H has a sale that caught my eye - Pentax AF-540 FGZ for $399. It caught my eye until I realized that this is the old model, not the latest flash that was recently on sale for something like $470.

Is $399 for the older flash really a sale?

Well, since the older model is discontinued, B&H is at liberty to lower the price. $399 isn't bad for a non-WR version of a $629 flash

KEH has several for under $250 if you don't mind buying used. I think they come with a 6 month warranty like the rest of their used products. http://www.keh.com/camera/Pentax-Autofocus-Shoe-Mount-Flashes/1/sku-AP219990950610?r=FE

This flash is often around $200 used at KEH. A really good deal.
