These deals are kinda sad. I might put a K-5II on my wish list but I'd much rather pay <$500 for the body only. Keep the "$100 value!" for the grip. I don't need or want it.
Just buy the bundle and sell what you don't want... I've done that multiple times.. You can easily sell a brand new D-BG4 on eBay or Amazon for $100-120. 64GB Card for $30.

Aye, certainly, I could. But I'd rather just buy the K-5II and not be tasked with that.

I asked B&H before buying the $596 deal and here is what they told me..
"If the price happens to drop within 30 days of your purchase, you may contact our Customer Service and they will look into a price adjustment for you. Please note that may be offered on a case by case basis and would be as a courtesy."

DA 50mm f1.8 is $181.95 today , so I skipped it.
My boys decided to pay for my K5iis as Christmas gift, so I just ordered it. Finally! Hopefully it will not be disappointment.

I am not disappointed with mine, it is awesome.
I just compared image quality between it and my K-3 and other than the fact the K-3 shot is a little more close in when set to 1:1, the images look exactly alike.
These were cropped to similar size from the originals.

The top ones are k-5iis and bottom are k-3 so that would be expected but to my eyes I don't see any significant difference. I can crop the K-3 more for sure.

That is one heck of a deal !

Does that grip, being the same as the K5's, also have the "battery pack" (AA's) included in the package?

Curious.

No need, thank you. I can't complaint for the price. And it has multiply exposure, can't wait!

The grip comes with two trays, one for use with AA batts and one for use with the DLi90 battery.
