Pentax K-500: $379
Posted By: Adam, 06-06-2014, 12:26 PM

The Pentax K-500 kit has just dropped to $379 at B&H. Best deal ever on a new DSLR IMO:

I was just thinking the same thing and wondering why there isn't more buzz over this offer.

Probably the lack of weather sealing keeps the buzz off of this forum, but as far as we know B&H may be selling bunches of them at this price. It would sure make a nice backup when you don't need sealing.

None of the cameras in this market segment have weather sealing though- and TBH, most beginners probably don't need it. But you're right, if this deal were promoted by stores I'm sure it would be a hit, as it's cheaper than any competitor's offering.

Definitely, If B&H sent out an email promotion, or if a big box store carried these and advertised this in the Sunday paper, they would blow them out the door in no time. It's almost like a secret discount, B&H does have it listed in the Father's Day Deals, but buried way down.

I was able to snag a great price on the dual lens kit from B&H. Sure wish I had used your click-through link though!
