Posted By: Adam, 04-16-2015, 09:36 PM

The black K-50 body has gotten yet another discount at B&H and is now just $329 with $97.90 in free extras and a 4% reward on top of that:

Adorama now seems to match the $350 price, includes the same AF200 flash, different vendor 32gig card.
But - the optional lens deals with Adorama are excellent -
only $ 20 extra for DA50 1.8
$ 260 for the DFA-50 2.8 macro
$ 275 for the DA 10-17
$ 85 for the DA35 2.4.

If a person only wanted the body they could get the 50mm, sell it and the flash for probably $125 or so, bringing the body cost down to $245.
Great deal, but I'm waiting for K-S2 price to drop a bit.

Just a heads up. The black, white, & red bodies are now $329 at B&H. Still include a Pentax flash & a memory card.

Unfortunately only available for store pickup. Interesting that the picture on the box shows a DAL lens but the label says DA? Got to believe it's the DAL.

I find a huge amount of inconsistency in the labeling of the kit with the 18-55 and 50-200 lenses. I think it's safe to assume that none of these kits include the green-ringed lenses, which tend to retail together for more than the body does.

Yup, genuine K-50 bundles only ship with the DA L 18-55 WR and DA L 50-200mm WR, since those two lenses were launched specifically for K-50 kits.

Also, Adorama has now increased the price of the lens bundling deals with Pentax bodies. 35mm is up to $111, and 50mm is now up to $51.

Ebay has been flooded by Roberts Camera with used low count k-50 bodies for $308 /obo. Counts seem to be less then 50 on all the ones I checked out. Scratches range though.
Been enjoying the hell out of my wife's K-50 since we got it. I was actually looking to scoop up another cheaply. $308 -used- doesn't do it for me but maybe someone else. Target cleared them out new for $310 with the kit 18-55mm WR lens so that feels like a good benchmark.

Unfortunately the local Super Target sold off their inventory before my Canon Rebel decided to go belly-up.

But there is a real difference to some of us to a camera with lens (Target) to a body only (Roberts)
