Target K-50 Clearance
Posted By: Lagom, 03-08-2015, 02:45 PM

Apparently target stores are clearing out their inventory and have marked the K-50 down to $310. This is only in the store not online and it seems most stores are sold out, but still worth a shot if you're looking for one.

I saw one the other day for $310. It was white but included kit lens. There was only one box left under the glass counter, and I wasn't sure if it was for the demo that was heavily used and turned brown from being touched so much. That demo camera would definitely not be worth $310...

Wow, I didn't even know target sold the K-50. I've been to a few of the over the last year and have never seen a demo unit.

Here you guys go, making me go to the local Target and get their display model, spending money I shouldn't. You should feel ashamed that I have a WR Stormtrooper.

One wonders if the Canadian Target stores have any Pentax gear? All Target in Canada are closing.
I may check this out tomorrow!

To maybe save some travel and aggravation Target has a "find in store" option, just put in your zip code.

Using the "put in your zip code" thingy, I found that 2 of 20 Target stores in northern VA show "Limited Availability". Not sure exactly what that means. I'm in zip code 20155.

I thought Pentax dictated what everyone could sell stuff for? So is everyone haveing a sale? A month or 2 ago you could get the red ones for $295 or something, but that was no lens. A sweet deal though. Wish I was willing to spend the right now. I just searched on Target.com and it gives the price of $499.95 bummer.

This only applies to online/phone pricing. In-store prices don't have the same MAP restrictions.

And many, but not all Target stores carry the K-50 (only the white kit).

Well my local Target has two boxes sitting in the glass case (don't know if one is for the display model but I doubt it). Checking on line it shows it as "in Stock", so perhaps "Limited Availability" means just one? The same boxes have been there all week, so I'm stopping by regularly (it's on the way home), just to see if they go lower.

Yeah, I was in my local Target a few days ago and I noticed that the spot where the white K-50 used to be on display was now empty. I asked the sales associate about it, and he said they had "clearanced out" the last one. I tried to ask him how well the K-50 sold, but he didn't really seem to have much of an idea.

That's the voice of reason Well, I did the same irrational thing, and grabbed last floor model today. What the heck for?! I call it greed!

p.s. Played with that for a while, buttons layout is more comfortable than K5iis, but no top display. Heh, but still... goes on ebay. Totally irrational buy.
