Looks like the lens is now showing as In Stock. Let's see if they actually ship it!

I just got a shipping notice--could it be that the accessory bundle is finally on its way--Two weeks late? I'm just glad they honored their special. I'm glad that myself and Miguel took screen shots of the $697 special--a one timer for sure...even better than any Crazy Eddie deal I ever had....

So Caribe did you get your kit or did you end up like ZombieArmy (with wrong accessories bundle) or you're in the Adorama 'back order' zone like me?
So, yesterday the KP arrived. They mailed the "accessories" pack first. I've been ordering photography related products from Adorama more than from BandH or Amazon lately. Only because they've had what I needed at the precise moment. All normal, but it would be very inconvenient if any of the different scenarios witnessed here happens to me. It makes me think twice. Sometimes a couple of dollars doesn't justify the "risk". I live overseas which means that sending things back and forth makes it harder. Adorama should make a statement to their customers.

Edit: deleted duplicate.

My bag and strap were shipped on Wednesday with a Monday estimated delivery. My lens has a tracking number and is only listed as "preparing to ship"--so I should get it about three weeks after I bought the deal from Adorama….That's somewhat disgraceful. If I needed the whole kit, I would have had the KP body sitting in the box waiting for the lens...thankfully, I'm stocked and it was no issue....

My ordering experience was pretty good. Ordered around midnight of the 23rd; camera was already listed as out-of-stock/back-ordered when I ordered so I knew I'd be in for a bit of a wait. But it was a good price and my wife's K-50 is showing signs of aperture block failure, so I went ahead with the order. I received an email giving me the option to contact Adorama for the accessories if I wanted those shipped early, but since I didn't really need them so I gave that a pass. This week, the accessory bundle shipped on the 3rd and the camera shipped a day later; got the lens/bag/strap yesterday and the camera arrived today. I didn't have to contact them and everything arrived in fine working order, so for me at least it was a trouble-free order. All things considered, I can't complain. Glad I wasn't one of the unlucky ones--hope you all receive your orders ASAP!

What I've been expecting is a similar markdown on the K-70. If they do a KP markdown again, I'll be really confused about their intentions.

The k-70 is marked down to $550.00 that's a great deal...for a weather sealed, 24mp, APS-c camera....tilt screen, etc. My only knock on the K-70 is the last generation AF (11 points} and the Prime II imager, but a great value nonetheless

The KP sale that started this thread was listed as 21% discount - literally a shelf-clearing price. K-70 is currently priced at nearly $600 at both B&H and Adorama - so a similar price for the K-70 would be something like $400 at both stores. I'm not sure we appreciate yet the $700 price for a camera that had no reason to be so deeply discounted already.

You didn't quote anyone, so I don't know who you were responding to - but this does directly follow my post, so I shall respond.

On Black Friday I purchased a KP and a 55-300mm PLM lens; can I assume you have also made purchases this month??
