Canada: K-3 price drops $100
Posted By: Doundounba, 11-03-2014, 03:37 PM

So I've been sporadically watching the K-3 body-only prices, and just noticed that they seem to have dropped by about $100 at most Canadian retailers. Henry's is at $950 down from $1050 and Broadway Camera is down from $950 to a very impressive $870. I wonder if that means something else is getting close to reaching the market...

I hope SOMETHING is about to hit the market! I am not very particular about what - just something to keep these price drops coming for a while, until I can afford replacing my broken K3...

It is interesting though. There hasn't really been enough(?) rumours in circulation to expect the mythical FF now already - but on the other hand the K3 is too young to launch a replacement. And apart from those two possibilities, what new launch could cause K3 to drop, really?

By the way Broadway camera usually have time limited sales so that price won't stay there forever, unless there is truly a new product coming out.

Nothing.
Ricoh have developed a habit of slashing prices after 12 months or so.
With lower K-mount body prices creating sales to those with limited funds, there more chance of lens and accessory sales to follow.

With the Canadian dollar at $USD0.88, the pricing from Canadian retailers is quite competitive vrs Adorama & B&H. The flash bundle at B&H is still tempting, but otherwise I think it currently makes more sense to buy from a Canadian retailer (especially if you don't need a grip)...

These prices just keep getting better. There must be something new on the way.

Makes it even more expensive to buy from the US now.
