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:

The day #4 "special" is binoculars for $50. Same binoculars are $40 new at EBay, $30 at Amazon.

Now that is really questionable...

It is also sad that the proud history of Pentax binoculars comes to this. I think they still make fine, high quality binoculars which one would expect to be part of this promotion and at least at a real promotion price.

Everywhere I looked at that has a better price is either out of stock or only one left. So unless you're the lucky one to get the 1 left in-stock where else are you going to get it from?

This sort of thing is why I was more than happy to 'bail out' of this sale.

Ok, this time it seems to be an item which may interest some of us. Not sure if the price is anything though. It does seem that they are only listing items on the way out of inventory.

The combination would cost you $1017 at Adorama and $1021 at B&H without the Benro tripod (worth between $129-199 depending on which model precisely it is).

That is what is most interesting to me. Is this the sale I've been watching for that indicates the K-70 is at the end of its run.....
