New Pentax k-3 $796.14 (free shipping to U.S)
Posted By: Stavri, 09-24-2014, 06:20 AM

I thought this was a good price for a brand new K-3. 9 available

It's strange that they have all those sales with no new model coming out.

Good deals on current products are not unknown on eBay and are not always evidence of a manufacture dumping product. A good example would be the FA 77/1.8 Limited that I bought about five years ago from a well-known eBay merchant. It was listed BIN at about $800 USD (a very good deal both then and now) with the option to make an offer. I offered about $500 USD and they accepted. The rest of the story is that the dealer had bought up remaining Pentax inventory from the demise of the Ritz Camera chain for pennies on the dollar and was moving that stock on eBay.

This small lot of K-3 may represent a similar situation. What is strange is that the seller usually deals in garments and currently has zero listings. OTOH, perhaps Ricoh is dumping its inventory of K-3, 9 units at a time through obscure channels! Current pricing at B&H matches the Nikon D7100.

Wait for the seller to list some hefty clothing articles, buy them with the camera and ask for combined shipping to U.S. -easy

30 day money back guarantee (buyers cost for sending back)

I will inspect very closely and will confirm warranty with provider (Pentax Australia?).

If the deal is 'dodgy' then back it goes! I suspect, however, that a local camera store went bust. The Gold Coast is not glittering at the moment (economically).

We will see soon enough. Item being shipped early next week.
