I saw those earlier today when perusing Warehouse deals. Personally I believe the K-70 to be the most capable new-in-the-box camera available in its price range across all manufacturers. These deals on it at Amazon are great ones.

I think they're calling the silver one "renewed" now, but it's still there for $375. That also means a 90 day guarantee, if I'm reading correctly. Of course it could be a different camera, but I kinda doubt it.

I'm very very tempted, but really should be saving for a K3iii instead, so someone else should swoop this up before I give in.

I bought it. I looked at Amazon Warehouse deals this morning and there it was. I've wanted to add an 18-135 lens, so I've accomplished that and an upgrade to my wife's K-S2.

We love seeing PF members get these deals. Enjoy, it's a great camera.

While I would have bought it - I think it went to a better home.

I see sub-$400 K-70 + 18-135 deals maybe 2-3 times a week on Amazon Warehouse.
If anyone's still out there hunting, be patient because they're plentiful.

The K-70 was delivered today. It looks brand new in the box.

I guess we lucked out.

Happens all the time with Amazon. I bought a tankless water heater from them a couple of years ago that had been described as moderate cosmetic damage but functional. When it arrived it was brand new, indented and unscratched.

A "used but good" All-Clad waffle iron last year was actually brand new in the resealed box. The iron itself had never been taken out, and the cord still factory-bound.

And more recently a very nice Pentax lens that was said to be used but good and being sold at less than half price was still in it's sealed protective case with factory tape still wrapped around the lens. Yup brand new.

I've had a few "very good" items that were very poor and sent back immediately. But I've also had good luck with lenses, each appearing to be unused. It's probably a good way for merchants to generate cash by selling excess goods at a discount without running afoul of manufacturers' MSRP agreements.

I wound up picking up a K70 (body only) from Amazon warehouse last week in "used-acceptable" condition for $310.79. Looks unused, still had the plastic on the screen, and the accessories were clearly unopened, although it came in a nondescript box that I assume wasn't the factory box, and with no papers or manual. I didn't check the shutter count right off the bat, but the oldest shot I've got was at 27, so it couldn't have been much.
I'm more than pleased! I wouldn't hesitate to go this route again.
