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 noticed that today too. Why don't they leave it at one price rather than constantly changing it. Is it to get more sales...?
A combination of many factors I'm sure. Authorized dealers have to go through lots of hurdles to pull off these kinds of deals.

The hurdles are related to the MAP pricing scheme that's typically enforced.

Oh I see that makes sense. I figured there had to be a good reason for it or else it didn't make much sense. Especially if it's MAP they don't really have any say on how it's priced.

Yes, make sure your cart is empty then click on the link then add it to your cart and checkout.
Adam, how do I know if my purchase was credited to the website, I went to Adorama thru the link, a couple weeks ago? Thanks, Dave

Do you use a screen protector or know of a good one ?
I am very satisfied with this one:

ACMAXX 3.2" HARD LCD SCREEN ARMOR PROTECTOR Pentax K3 K-3 K3D D DSLR Body kit

It has a protector for both the top and back LCD's. Not flimsy, rather hard plastic, and looks very nice!
