Got my lens and other extras today. So all's well that ends well. Thanks to all for sharing information.

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.
REH; I certainly appreciate the door buster 697 price: that is less than. some lightly used K-3ii are selling for....and, I know this may sound blasphemous to some, but I like the KP better than either the K-3ii (sold for $600 w/35mm & 50mm DA plastic prime lenses in 8/18) or the K-3 (sold for 370 in 10/18). It just feels newer (it is) and I don't miss the GPS feature--I also find the fill-in (6m) flash to have more practical utility in reducing noise in certain low-light situations. Glad I snagged one, though I probably would have paid 900 for it and still been satisfied...

All's Well That Ends Well !!

Nearly 3 weeks after purchasing my Pentax KP bundle (KP body--18-55mm lens, strap, sling bag) from ADORAMA, they order was completed upon receipt of the lens.....That was a hard transaction, but It's over now and the camera is fantastic....the lens itself has the metal bracketing so it is SMC DA AL version of this mainstay and certainly above standard versus the all plastic issue of the same focal lengths....

I appreciate Adam, Adorama and all the folks here at Pentax Forum for their help, guidance and suggestions....I also hope that everyone else that ordered the identical bundle receive their full purchase....

I still need to call adorama about getting the sling bag. I got this really trashy lowepro bag that I'm not pleased with. Can't even fit a camera in it.

As an aside, make you sure you are able to send (via e-mail) a screen shot of your invoices and receipts showing proof of what you ordered vs. what was received or you may be in for multiple calls. Honestly, without the screen shot/proof of the bundle purchase, I may have been shut out.

I had no problems with my purchase at all. I knew when I purchased that it was on back order, so I was willing to wait however long it took. The accessories arrived a couple days before the camera.

Was going to take PS images of our Christmas cactus in bloom. Unfortunately, I found out quickly that the KP does not have an IR sensor for my remote. I never dreamed that Pentax would produce a camera of those specs without. Even the Q series has it. At least 75% of the time, maybe more, I use a IR remote. Eventually the water resistance for the cable cover would be worn out probably sooner than later.


Feel bad about sending it back used with shutter count of 5. Had the customer service rep look to see if there was a low mileage K-3 II in any of their inventory to exchange, but there were none. So I'm sending it back.

I sure hope the replacement for the KP/K3 series comes with capability for a wireless remote.

Just noticed Adorama now has the Kp body for $796.95 ($300 instant rebate):
Pentax KP 24MP TTL Autofocus DSLR Camera, Black
This includes the Sling Bag and Pentax Strap. however, if you add the 50 mm lens the package is only $813.90 (in silver).

Looks like $700 KP may be back
{based on Day 10, I'm guessing price is for body only}

I wish I didn't see this. My "buy it!" switch had been turned off since the Adorama iffiness. However, I now have to wonder- Black or Silver?
