The 540 Flash with the k-3 Mystery....SOLVED!
Posted By: CeciProAm, 11-26-2014, 11:43 AM

Adorama cleared out their Pentax 540 speedlights several months ago,
in anticipation of the 2nd generation. Therefore, they could not match
B&H's offer simply because they no longer had them in stock.

B&H was offering the incredible 50 dollar deal on the 540, when purchased
with the Pentax k-3 but only until they cleared out/sold out their inventory,
which they did approximately two days ago.

They are still offering great deals on the K-3, bundled with the new flu card
or a lens or is truly a great time to buy a K-3 and both vendors
are happy to work with PentaxForums people!

But please remember that this Forum only gets credit if you click on the links

Happy Holidays!

And now I think they are running out of the battery grip too because they are
offering the K-3 for $796.95 body only.

That description sounds about right with my experience. I picked up the k3 bundle with grip and Flucard and added the 50/1.8 through Adorama, but couldn't add the flash. I had it on another tab at B&H as an add on for $50 with the bundle, but when we tried to duplicate that with the Adorama CSR, it would no longer come up.
I waited a bit too long to make up my mind, but still got a great deal with the FluCard and lens. Seems I just missed the option to add it to my total bundle.

Flash was back at B & H today, put it in my cart but I had to take care of something and when I went back to the cart it was gone. Grip is still being offered.

Wish I could afford one of these deals with a flash. They are very tempting.
