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.

That's very bad news for me. I'm so close to being able to get this deal; just trying to sell my K10D; but it looks like I won't make it before they run out.

Did not see it in the kit description nor in the DA 50 box nor the paperwork. Hope that helps.

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.

Thank you!

The 100mm2.8 That I got have the new leaf warranty I know is a download thing but I haven't receive any email from new leaf at all and I spoke to adorama staff about it twice already. Any one here know how it works?

I know, it looks like they'll be sold out in the next two weeks. But who knows, maybe they won't. Frank said to buy within the next week or so. So I plan to call back and check remaining stock in a week and see how many are left. But like others have said, I can't imagine the price being reduced any further as it's already a good deal. So it may not be worth holding out and risking them selling out.

Just keep in mind if the price drops they will do a price match if you buy it within 30 days of Black Friday. Let's hope they have some left in two weeks.

I'm sure the K3's will be gone in two weeks. I don't even care about the lens/flash; just wanted the K3 at that price. I can't afford a K3II.

How about the B&H deal for the same price but with flash only?

If Adorama is getting low on stock, you can probably bet so will B&H. I can't do anything for 2 weeks, unless my K10D sells sooner; so I can only wait & hope.

Me too. It can possibly be a better alternative.

You're probably right. Maybe I can call and check with B&H tomorrow. Either way I hope you sell your K10D asap

Wow great news! That was quick! I thought I noticed something different with your sig. Congrats! .

I'm new here so I was bit confused about your comment about ordering through the Pentax Forums. Is there a checkout process on the website, or did you mean you followed the link provided in this thread?

PS I called B&H and they didn't give me an exact number but said they had plenty in stock. So I'm hoping it should be alright for those waiting for deals.

Here's the link explaining how and why to order thru this forum, when ordering from Adorama or B&H.

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/94-pentax-price-watch/101329-do-you-buy-a...taxforums.html

I'm very happy & lucky to get the K3, I hope all those that are close to getting one, is successful!

Not only with this deal, you get free expedited shipping, but also qualify for $25.96 reward voucher (4%); that comes 4o days after shipping; that can be used on future purchases! Can't beat this deal at all!

Wow thanks for pointing that out. I saw that thread but overlooked it thinking it was someone asking for people's opinion

I agree the Adorama deal is great. You get a free lens, flash and the $25.96 voucher. If you add up the value, even considering eBay prices for the lens and flash, In the end the body alone comes out to about $500, which is amazing!
