Alert!!! Read now!!! Pentax K50 & kit lens for $299 new
Posted By: arnold111, 11-23-2014, 08:22 PM

Hi everyone,


Just wanted to let you know that Samy's Camera in LA is selling brand new Pentax K50 cameras with a 18-55mm kit lens for $399 plus they are giving a $100 mail in rebate to Pentax, meaning the net cost of this camera is $299!!! They are also paying the 9% tax if you live in CA!! $299 for a DSLR??? I haven't seen anything as low as this. Buy it now if you are looking for a K50 - this is an insanely low price!!! I just bought mine. This deal is good until November 26, 2014. This ad was in today's LA Times.

The ad pdf says $496.95 - $100 mail in rebate. Don't see it on the web site for any less.

299 for a kit sounds a bit too low- for a body only that might work.

Hi again folks,


Attached is a copy of the ad that was in this morning's newspaper as well as a copy of my receipt. They will be emailing me the $100 mail in rebate form as stated on the receipt. My net cost for the camera and lens is $299. I think there may be an error in their ad, as the numbers don't ad up, but that was my deal. They said they had done the same deal with someone else earlier today.


I am posting this as a courtesy to the members of this forum in appreciation for the assistance I was given a few weeks ago by so many members who gave me ideas and input about whether or not to purchase a Pentax K50 DSLR.

Part #: 10894 still comes up at 496.95 on the web, and it now shows as out of stock. Ad says "in store prices may vary". Looks like it's walk-in only.

That's quite a lot of bang.

I was planning on going to Samy's tomorrow to compare the K-3 and GX7 and just pulled the supplement out of today's newspaper and saw the K-50 pricing as well as the pricing for the GX7 w/ kit lens which is the same as Adorama & B & H and no tax. I don't want the GX7 with the 14-42 lens, though. I wonder if they would match the price of the body only and still do no tax. Also wonder if they will match the price for the K-3. Will take the pricing with me tomorrow.
That is a great deal for the K-50 and much better than what is in the ad. Wonder if they will honor that tomorrow. I might want to get that for a friend or even myself. Worth a try. I think I'll print out your receipt and take that w/ me, too, if that's OK w/ you.

Update: Forgot that Adorama offers a $100 gift card w/ the GX7 so still better deal than Samy's but that K-50 pricing is excellent.

Iamwhoiam, since you reside in So. CA, you would know that Samy's Camera is a fantastic company and they have a great reputation. They have been in business for many years and have multiple locations - their main store on Fairfax is about 5 floors in a building - they are huge. On the occasions I have been in there, I found them to be very friendly and helpful - they know their stuff and are all camera enthusiasts. If my post will help a few forum members acquire a new Pentax Camera at a good price and also result in more business for Samy's by selling more Pentax cameras, especially the K50, I think it could be a win-win for everyone, including the Pentax Company! I hope I'm not missing something here...

Tempting. I'm picking up a k-50 tomorrow from someone off CL, new in box with receipt and warranty. I just mapquested all of Samy's locations and they're too far out of the way to just go check it out. hmmm

Arnold, I've been to both the LA and Pasadena stores. I think the only things I've purchased there were a portable tripod and some filters. For the last few years I've been buying my photo gear online. Does the rebate come in the form of a check, a gift card or a prepaid card? Even w/ that great pricing, I still lean more towards the K-3.

Was going to print out the copy of your receipt but it is gone.

Went to Samy's today and checked out a few cameras including the K-50. They did not have a K-3 available. The K-50 was still being priced at $399 and also included a $100 mail in rebate. I found out that it was the last K-50 in stock at the store. After checking it out and taking some photos, I decided it just didn't feel right to me. While I was considering it I overheard that someone else was interested in purchasing one. I fooled with it a little more and then decided that, even though it was a great buy, I would rather use my $$$ towards the K-3 or the K-5iis if I am going to get another Pentax. The other person did purchase the camera. I don't think they even checked it out, at least I didn't notice that.

I wonder if we will start to see some of these bargain K-50s showing up on ebay being flipped for a profit.
