B&H and Adorama should match the price if you ask nicely!

I'm glad I skipped the K-3 ... with the rate at which the K-3 II price is decreasing, in a few more months it really should be around the current prices of the K-3!
There isn't much separating them as it is, especially when you factor in the free 50mm lens and flash that come with the K-3. I spent the day out with mine and now think the difference between the two is very minimal unless you really want the internal GPS. A strict budget may favor the K-3 with the external GPS and you have the advantage of a built-in flash. I could certainly see some going that way. I probably could have saved myself a bit if I weren't so impatient.

That is more than $100 price difference than B&H! They better match this!

Thank you for changing the price in the topic title.
There have been articles from two completely different, but respected, news sources which are highly critical of how two different parts of Amazon are run.
Amazon's culture is 'purposeful Darwinism,' investigation finds - Aug. 15, 2015
Amazon workers face 'increased risk of mental illness' - BBC News

I'm fairly confident that B&H will not try to match Amazon in how they treat their people, which might hinder their ability to match the deals.

Actually B&H was able to match the price. I didn't read the articles yet but since Amazon has decided to close my account for good I am forced to take my business somewhere else.

I normally order from B&H or Adorama. We lost most of our local camera stores due to bigbox stores and the internet. Buying at Amazon is a risk for the surviving camera stores.
