Pentax K-3 and 18-135mm kit (Pack of 8) for $1629 USD
Posted By: mee, 10-07-2015, 07:42 PM

https://jet.com/product/Ricoh-K-3-234-Megapixel-Digital-SLR-Camera-with-Lens...a9ef500418708a

Who here wants to try this? haha It claims a pack of 8 K-3s with the 18-135mm lens for just 1629 dollars. That is around 204 dollars each. Well... if it really IS a pack of 8 and not just a typo (which I'd suspect is the case).

Buy for 1600, sell each for 600 for quick money.. make a net of ~3200 dollars. Hello, full frame camera!

Can you contact the seller somehow? Are you located in the US? If it's true, it'd be fantastic to do a Groupon style purchase where we all share the savings.

Bummer. But interesting that they said it was a PRICING error. That means it really was a pack of 8 right? Had you not called they might have shipped...

Btw your first post I see... welcome to the forums, lurker. hehe

Indeed we can. haha now I See the product page has been updated to say none in stock. Someone in pricing must have just got the 'oh snap' text and squashed it.

Because of the way the URL is written, one can parse it as "K3 234 megapixel digital SLR camera". Yep. Eight of those for $1629 would be a pretty good deal! Move over, Canon; the DSLR megapixel race is OVER.
