Pentax K-3 body (new) - $534.80 on Amazon
Posted By: bill_k, 07-10-2015, 04:20 AM

An Amazon third party seller has the Pentax K-3 body (new) on sale for $534.80 plus $5.99 shipping. The only way I can see to access it is to use this link, and it is the first listing which has the lowest price shown of $534.80 plus $5.99 shipping. I have verified directly with the seller via Amazon's email that these are NEW, but I have no personal experience with this seller. Just trying to share what appears to be a great deal, and Amazon has buyer purchase protection if any issues arise. There are currently five available in stock from this seller.

At that price and with Amazon's guarantee backing the transaction, he could be a boy named Sue for all I care

I put in an order at 6:48
got cold feet and cancelled order at 7:44
Shipping confirmation came through at 9:08
at 10:12 I got an email from the seller saying that the transaction would be cancelled.
At 1:22 I got the confirmation through Amazon that the transaction was cancelled.

As shady as this dude looks, he SEEMS like he will deliver (or he was going to ship me 2 lbs. of bricks in a box). I can't imagine what kind of legit business stocks 2 DSLRs, a Fuji instamatic and a 73" TV. For those that want warranties and want to support a camera store that will still be around in a couple years, I suggest using someone else. For someone who absolutely has to have the cheapest K-3 out there (and hopefully there's no issues with it), there's this dubious character.

I really wanted a dirt cheap K-3, but with the new K-3II and the soon to come FF, K-3s will be selling for close to this price for awhile. I'd rather pay a touch more and have something (a bit more) legit.

No, because I already have a K-3. However, I've pulled the trigger on all sorts of Amazon-mediated deals that were seen as 'sketchy' by others and they've all gone through. As long as it's through Amazon.com, you've got nothing to lose.
