US Pentax Deal Roundup: Week of October 25th, 2016
Posted By: Adam, 10-25-2016, 04:21 AM

With our new deals page up, my weekly US deal roundups will follow a slightly different format. The % discounts shown are now based on average price among US dealers rather than MSRP, thus giving you a better idea of actual deals. Deals from the US Pentax web store are now also included! When there's a discount shown, it means you're actually getting a deal! Be sure to check the page for daily updates (disclaimer: it's still in beta stage).

There are also some items that don't have a discount but haven't been selling any lower in the past many months (among major authorized dealers) and are thus also good buys.

Note that the % discount shown doesn't factor in freebie items. To that end, there's a great deal on the K-3 II plus a free grip:



B&H and Adorama will re-open tomorrow, so there might be some interesting changes at that point. For now, without further ado:

I just sold my K-50 and plan to either get a K-3 II body or a K-70 with the 18-135mm lens. Leaning towards the K-70 right now, but I don't need it until Spring of next year, so unless Pentax has some serious holiday deals, I'll be sitting with just my much-loved K-S1 and 18-250. Still can't believe how great the pics are from that combo. Only thing is, I need something weather-sealed for boating.

In the same.. errrmm.. boat.. as you on this. If Pentax doesn't come hard with the sales this years (like they did in 2013 and somewhat 2014) then I'll just use what I have and wait for the refresh in the Spring. Actually, the more I think about it, the smarter it is to just wait.. I think we'll see better high ISO performance, AF tracking, and maybe a flip screen on the next K-3 style body.

It will be interesting to see which, if either, of my two choices (K-3II body only or K-70 w/ 18-135mm) will be priced below their current price point of around $900. I've learned this much about Pentax: if you can wait 3 months or more after introduction you will see a discount on their new stuff. Except of course the K-1, which they felt compelled to jack up the price on once the initial rush was over.

I would expect the K-3 II to have some deals for Black Friday. It's a year and a half old at this point so a discount is feasible, though the current price is competitive (plus you can currently get it with a free grip from B&H, Adorama, and Amazon), which effectively drops it to the same price as the K-3 (now discontinued).

As for the K-70, the 18-135mm kit is already priced extremely competitively (same price as the D5500 kit after rebate), so not sure if it will drop by much (if any) until at least the middle of next year.

Thanks Adam! I'd rather have the K-3 II so if the sales do come, I'll be ready. Adding on $400 for the 18-135mm lens I'd be thrilled if I could do it for $1100 or so, but that may be asking too much. We shall see!

That's quite realistic IMO!
