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.

Clicking on Adorama links in first post does not show the lens & flash as being included for $649.

It does for me. ( I clicked the link that was large print and had K3 in the text not the generic adorama link)

Try this link. Yours comes up as a student educator one which isn't quite right.

Your second link comes up to the same page as I had linked to. No where does it show the "special", with lens & flash. Perhaps it's no longer available.

if I click on the link to Adorama in the header of this page, it takes me to the $649 deal.... maybe a cache-clear in your browser?

Just click the "Not a student/educator?" link in the upper menu or clear your browser's cookies then click the link in the first post again and it should work.

I never hated the K50 shutter sound but it is undeniably louder. The K3 is very quiet. If I had a decibel meter I'd try to get that quantified. I don't startle when I switch from one to the other if that's what you are wondering. The K3 is significantly softer sounding as well as less loud.

Go for the K-3 IMO, the features in the K-3 II are very niche-oriented.

What if GPS, star tracking, and high resolution still scene photography are his niches though?
Thank you all for the great input.

I went ahead and jumped on the k3II. I received a phenomenal deal from the local shop because I wouldn't stop coming by haha. Final deal was $698 after taxes and it will arrive Saturday. He said that new shipment was coming in. Hoping its the one without the issue now? We'll see haha...

Wow! Great price! Congratulations!

I'm definitely going to get the K3, just waiting for a few weeks, hoping a deal like Adorama's will still be available, or one close to it! Heck, I've even ordered a set of the ACMAXX hard LCD screens for a K3, so now I'm committed!
