K-3II $830 on Amazon.com
Posted By: farhaddad, 08-10-2015, 08:20 PM

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

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

Thank you for changing the price in the topic title.

I got mine from B&H 21 days ago. I wonder if they would match it? Not sure what their policy is on this type of issue.

Send their support an email message before Amazon change the price and see if they would match it.

I bought one today at the $829 price. Now just hoping it is a good serial number without the shutdown issue.

I have a sneaky suspicion that these are the "affected" serial numbers (though this is an utter speculation on my part) ...

Adorama will not match a price if it's a one day discount or sale. I found this out the hard way.

Yeah, too bad. I don't blame them though, Amazon prices aren't sable! They change every minute!

B&H just dropped the price of K3-II to $849.00. Did you contact them yet?

Ya. B&H was great. They matched the price. So I got my K-3II for $832. They know I will spent that there plus a few hundred more. Last month alone I spent close to $3,000 there.

I got the K-3II from Amazon when the price was at $825 (before B&H dropped their price). It arrived yesterday and is a good serial number 621XXX. It acted goofy at first and I thought it was bad, but charging the battery seems to have resolved it.

The flucard is a bit awkward and requires patience, I recommend using a standard SD card to start with or put the flucard in slot 1 where it can only be used for storage (it has to be in slot 2 for wifi and storage). I finally got it working right with Chrome on my Windows laptop. I can't get the iPhone app to work and the iOS web browser is not supported. The camera is beautiful and I am very pleased.

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!
