Posted By: Adam, 11-24-2014, 04:20 PM

This is an official Adorama Black Friday deal (won't go lower). The K-5 IIs is available for an all-time low of $496:

Nice price! Still hoping for a deal with kit lens / lens bundle...

(Trying to help my nephew buy his first DSLR and wanted to get him a deal with WR kit lens.)

This is getting ridiculous. I am now contemplating a K5iis and K3 - all other cameras can go to the sale yards!

Wonder if this means there is room for K3 to go lower.....or is that just insane?

Looks like the battery grip is no longer included but comes with a free flash.

Was going to do a deal on the K-5IIs this holiday but decided to live with the K-x a while longer (I just got it used a few years ago). Had plenty of Xmas $$$ for this camera (especially at these prices) but bought a nice Citizen watch for myself and the rest will help fund a little business venture I've been trying to give wings. Not losing sight of the K-5IIs, just putting it off a bit.

All the lens kits for the K-5 IIs were discontinued a while ago, but there will be deals on the K-3 lens bundles come Thursday.

The free flash is until the end of the day today, AFAIK.

Bought it. Glad I didn't buy the used one on KEH for a few bucks cheaper. Going to have to sell some lenses and the flash to make up for it but it's worth it I think.

kit/bundle

is there a difference in "lens kit" versus "lens bundle"?
becasue i would personally love to get a decent quality lens "bundled" with a new k3 at a discount but would have no interest in a "kit" 18-55 or 18-135 lens.

Yep, ToyTank is right. I bought the K-5 IIs with the original Grip + a 64 GB Sandisk Ultra SDXC Card for $ 596.99 with Free Shipping. With the Grip & the Card valued at $ 230 at the cheapest actual price online, the K-5 IIs Body costs only $ 367.
Now that is a steal. Congratulations B&H.

I was on live chat with B&H representative ( Rob K ) while the price was $540. I sent him my details and a link to Adorama's offer, and suddenly the price dropped to the same $496.95.

Just ordered it

My first time shopping from B&H and definitely not the last. Lucky I have a friend living in USA, so I just set his address for the shipping.
