K-3 for $649 w/ free DA 50mm and flash (Black Friday)
Posted By: Adam, 09-17-2015, 01:32 PM

A nice K-3 deal has just gone up at Adorama (free 50mm lens and flash + K-3 for $649.00):

Pentax K-3 DSLR Camera Body 15530

While the deal surely won't last, it's nice to finally get a break from the stubborn price tag of $749 at US authorized dealers.

Yep, I havent received the lens yet either, I was debating about asking Adorama for the DA 35 2.4, since I already have a sigma 50 1.4.

I doubt very much if they could substitute, but it's worth a try for you to ask!

damn, must be a rebate thing. oh well at least adorama is doing it rather than having to wait on the lens for the rebate.

I received the DA 50mm 1.8 but they sent the flimsy lens box in a thin bubble wrap envelope!

The lens is fine but the box is all crunched up and ripped, and now Adorama is blaming UPS for it and wants UPS to investigate NO!

Is that a common thing with Adorama now? I never received anything from them before in that a sh***y packaging.

Where did you see this? I've been on the fence and hoping this would last a bit longer.

Yeah, that's what I had originally been targeting/hoping for. I don't need the included flash and the 50mm would have been alright but in reality, one of those can be picked up cheap all the time.

I don't think you can get a better deal if you want the lens and flash but the camera only price might go lower.
I really don't need the extras so I think I will wait.

Quote from Page 7. If the quote is true, will the K3 last until Black Friday?

Just spoke with Frank at Adorama and thought I'd let everyone know that they have about 50 units left of the K-3. This camera is discontinued so it will not be restocked. He also said they will most likely not drop the price, and if they do, they'll refund the difference if it's purchased within 30 days of the price drop.

In regards to the 50mm lens, it will be back in stock in 2-3 weeks. And the free New Leaf 3 Year warranty is included only if you purchase the lens separately. So not included in the K-3 deal.

And in general regarding the New Leaf warranty, the regular one for Parts and Labor can be purchased within 30 days of purchasing a camera. The Accidental Damage and Spills one can be purchased within 7 days of purchase, and that one also covers Parts and Labor.

So basically two weeks until the 27th to be within the 30 day window. I will wait and hope they are still in stock to purchase it.
