Pentax USA Lens & Accessory Rebates Ending 12/31: Top Deals
Posted By: Adam, 12-30-2014, 11:38 PM

I have gotten word from Adorama that "December 31st is the last day for the major instant rebates on a majority of Pentax/Ricoh Items for at least a little while. Most Instant rebates will either end tomorrow or the prices will go up."

That means that most of the Pentax deals listed in this post will be gone come the new year.

Here are a few of the best deals I've found so far:

Cameras
Lenses
I hope you guys manage to secure these last-minute savings before they're gone. Even more rebates can be found on the homepage. Happy new year!

Happy New Year!

Looks like some of the deals are expiring and prices are beginning to jump up. Maybe there's a certain quantity of lenses at the lowered price? Once those are gone then the rest of the sale prices jump up.

Typically its a time limit. Thanksgiving to New Year's is almost always the best time to buy Pentax gear from a price standpoint in my experience. They said they would expire on 12/31 and most did.

Interestingly, the 1.4x TC is still available for $496. Most of the other lenses/cameras have gone up.

Everything has gone back to regular pricing at Adorama, but B&H has the converter, DA^300, and K5-IIs for special pricing for sure. There are others, but if you are looking for something specific, I would follow the top deals links and see there current pricing.

Q lenses kept their lower prices at B&H, but they went back to normal at Adorama.

One of the side benefits of discounts on new gear is a drop in prices on used gear. Now that new gear is going back up in price I think we'll see used gear prices rise as well. Add to that an increase in demand as people may be spending some left over Christmas money.

It was fun while it lasted, right?

I got a new 50-135 for $850 on Amazon last week. I couldn't resist that price.


Wow! That is a GREAT price... I'm saving for that lens and hope to find it under $1,000 by Fall. The cheapest I've seen it was Black Friday of 2013 when I think it was around $950 at B&H. $850 is amazing. Glad you got it!
