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.

I like the B&H deal better where you get the K3 + 50mm lens kit for $750 but instead of a free flash you get a free battery grip.

Only caveat is that ordering is closed until tomorrow evening which not a big deal...

This is a good deal , Unfortunately I am beginner with a lower budget and ended up getting a K-50 today with 18-55 Kit lens.

Where'd you buy it? What did you end up paying?

Zork97 you are going to like that K50. I have been using the K30 for a couple of years now but, just bought a K3ii on a deal that I could not pass up.

@ dansamy - I ordered on Amazon. Body with the 18-55mm cost me $349 . I also bought a polarizing lens to go with it.
@jb0501 - Thank you, I look forward to this journey.

That's a good price. I ended up ordering the Samy's K-S1 deal to replace the K-x.

Regarding shipping from Adorama, my K-3 showed up earlier this week in excellent condition, well packaged.

No clue, in this case there is no set start/end date for this deal, so it's subject to change.

This offer seems to be still valid, and I am seriously considering it. I don't have use for the lens and the flash. I wish one could choose the grip instead.

Should I pull the triger

Hi Guys.

Seems like there are no new deals for K-3 bodies .
Taking into account I have only limited usage for the flash & 50mm lense, what would you rather do ? what is the better deal in your opinion?
1)Buy the adorama deal for 650$?
2)Buy body only from gadget circuit for 605$ Pentax K-3 DSLR Camera (Body Only)
3)Buy the k3 II body only from gadget circuit for 705 $ Pentax K-3 II DSLR Camera (Body Only)
4)Buy k3 II body only from B&H for 750?

Any ideas ?

I'd probably go for the Adorama deal, sell the flash and lens, and use the 4% rewards toward something else you need. Net you'll be paying under $500 for the body...hard to beat!

Thanks Adam.

You are probably right, but selling equipment takes time and energy (lazy me)
Do you think there is a chance for further deals later this month ?
