Pentax K-1 $1547 at Samys
Posted By: reduno, 07-24-2018, 03:32 AM

Just noted Samys also has the Pentax K-1 with a $350 instant rebate that brings the price down to $1,546.95.

Samy's Camera is a well respected brick and mortar store in the Los Angeles area that has been in business since 1976. They are also listed as an authorized Ricoh retailer.

Looks like it's on backorder when you try to add it to the cart.

At least one of those locations is for equipment rentals only.

Does anyone know how long it might take to arrive if I purchase this "backordered" item? I mean does anyone have any experience with Samy's Camera store?

Since they are local to me I normally purchase stuff from in person at the store. I've never purchased anything that was backordered. The few items I've purchased online were either shipped the same day or within a business day.

Back-ordered items are going to take as least as long as it takes to get inventory from their suppliers and how many orders there are before yours. It could be days, weeks or months. If the item is out of production and the supplier runs out of stock before your order can be fulfilled you will be notified and the order cancelled.

Just a plug for Samys. I jumped at their K-S1 fire sale a couple years ago and everything went smoothly. I may be biased by the camera's price-output ratio, since it takes amazing shots and what, $200 for body and lens? Yes please. We always think of Amazon and the big 2 NYC stores first, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Samys again.

And at that price, the K-1 is pretty darn near the $1300 mark I said I'd buy it at. Buy one! Stop this price freefall! I don't have $1300 even!

Samys still shows the camera as back ordered but the instant rebate is gone, and the price is back up to $1,896.95 (same as the K-1 II).

We've got an order at Samy's for our August giveaway winner. Hopefully it's not too long of a wait, but now that the deal is gone I guess it's water under the bridge if you were considering it.

Well as fast as things change on the internet, Samys is now back with a $200 instant rebate on the K-1 and $100 on the K-1 II. The K-1 still shows "usually ships in 3-5 business days", while the K-1 II is special order. Hopefully they will come through in time for the August giveaway.
