12 days of Pentax holiday deals @ the US Ricoh Web store
Posted By: Adam, 12-07-2018, 03:54 AM

A number of holiday specials will be going live at the official US web store over the course of the coming days. These are a little bit different from your everyday deals, which are mere price drops. The first 3 were:
  • GR II w/ red ring & memory card (sold out)
  • Theta Hatsune Miku edition (still available)
  • WG-50 with float strap & memory card (still available)
The deals will all be posted here:

Binoculars

Listed as discontinued by manufacturer or no longer available on several sites (B&H). Other sites show a better price ($65 range). None with any in stock.
Hench, "Limited Stock"..........

That is why I'm watching these sales so carefully. They seem to be either close-out sales or mixtures of close-out with continued items.

And today's special is a GR for $399... I guess that's a close-out and long-since discontinued...
I guess they had one last crate of them around in a corner somewhere...

It's pretty crazy that they would have a sufficient quantity of that one lying around...

That said, compared to the original price of $899, $399 is quite a bargain! $399 would be a great price even for a standard edition GR.

Is the Ricoh GR a better camera than the GRII. The reviews say it is, but the features appear superior on the GRII. Interested in hearing your thoughts.

It's literally the same camera, but without Wi-Fi and a few other menu features.

So the battery lasts longer without WiFi and you save a bit of weight and cost = better to me. Thanks.

It looks like the special edition was only made for the Original GR and not the II.

That GR is super tempting... I love my GR an unreasonable amount, and mine is well enough used that I'm starting to worry about it dying on me.

This series of items for sale is similar to the bargain bin of your friendly neighborhood department store. It is a bunch of stuff no one bought that they are trying to unload by giving it lipstick and hyping it.

The Amazon days sale in the summer is similar in practice.. but they still have incredible results... amazingly.

Price it correctly, and almost anything can be useful to someone. I find it interesting that only Day 1, the GRii, has sold out.

I think I heard a youtuber that has this say that this special edition is not as grippy as the original GR or GRii. Still since it comes with the case and 49mm adapter, I'm in. Glad it didn't sell out!

I agree, but not todayís offering...K-1 MKII Bundle with BG-6 Grip, 32GB SD Card and Gadget Bag!

Looks to be similar to https://www.adorama.com/ipxk12.html that doesnít include SD card
