Pentax web store sales
Posted By: Homo_erectus, 11-27-2014, 11:41 AM

The Pentax web store has some great sales today. Official Pentax Online Store | Pentax Digital Cameras | Pentax Webstore

The FA 31mm Limited is on sale for 773! smcP FA 31mm f/1.8 Limited (Black) | Pentax Webstore

The D-FA 50mm Macro is 303. smcP D-FA 50mm f2.8 Macro | Pentax Webstore

There are a lot of other lenses on sale as well although the price cuts are not quite as high generally.

I just ordered the 31mm :-)

As much as I hate shopping there because of the processing overhead and slower delivery times, those look like some great deals! Thanks for sharing.

That is a great deal. And another nasty temptation. I managed to stave off the 31 on sale at KEH last week.
Can I do it again?

I ONLY WANT THE FA31, I DON't NEED IT...I ONLY WANT THE FA31, I DON't NEED IT...

10/31 B&H FA31 @ $869 + Fee Shipping versus 11/31 (BF) B&H FA31 @ $834 didn't bother me.

But $773?

That's an amazing price for the FA 31! Pulling the trigger...I am going to be so broke after this holiday.

The 55-300 HD WR seems reasonable too.

In addition to that white body for $299 at the Pentax Store, they have the red one for the same price. The black body is $399, however.

I've never purchased directly from them before. So I have no idea what to expect.

The cheapest I've seen the FA 31mm was 852 for a used copy at KEH. 773 for a brand new copy was just too good to pass up.

Its great to hear that there are so many other good deals too.

:-)

773 + 15 (shipping) + 77 (tax) = 865 vs B&H price with free shipping and no tax upfront. B&H DOES seem like a great deal suddenly

Well, a set of good sales with satisfied customers could go a long way toward repairing their reputation. Let's hope that is what they are after.

The D-FA 50mm Macro is 303.
Interesting.

Those are two lenses that we would expect to see updated
if there was going to be a 24x36mm CMOS sensor to put behind them.

I hope all goes well since I've just ordered the 31 limited. I also received free shipping & handling for signing up for the newsletter.
Sweet deal, Thanks Homo_erectus!

Whoa, the HD DA 55-300 for $258, the FA31 for $773, the K-50 body for $300, and even the FA 50mm Macro for $300 - all seem like great deals! I'm happy they don't ship to Canada... Let's hope they come through for buyers because as I recall, there have been a number of pricing mistakes and imbroglios involving them.
