B&H: Pentax K-3 + Grip + DA 50mm/F1.8 = $739
Posted By: yucatanPentax, 01-05-2016, 02:02 PM

Might not qualify as a knock-out bargain, but the Pentax K-3 with GRIP and DA 50mm/1.8 at $739 is a pretty decent package.

The grip generally runs ~$135 + ~$90 for the lens. That leaves the K-3 costing only ~$514 with 1 yr guarantee. Not a bad deal, really, esp if you can make use of the lens.....

Does Adorama or B&H still have 2 yrs additional warranty cheaply available?

That's a very good deal -- I spent $1100 for the same package 2 years ago!

I think I paid $1400 for the same, but in silver, near launch. So many good deals on this amazing camera.

Not a bad deal at all. I think the extended warranty is temporarily unavailable, though.

Adorama still lists the Pentax 2-year extended warranty for $17.96, but it's currently on backorder.

I wonder if that means the "30 day after camera purchase" required purchase period starts ticking when bought or when "backorders" come in? And begs the question: How can a warranty be on backorder?

I was curious about this as well since I wanted to purchase it for a new camera. I spoke with a Adorama rep that said you will be the invoiced on the day you make the purchase, not when the item becomes available and ships. So as long as you buy it within 30 days you should be okay.

That's the price I bought this bundle at in early December. It's 10 cents cheaper now and the warranty has been expired since. I bought mine from Amazon.
