... just to note that the "base" kit (for 346.95) comes with a strap and a bag, but the "free accesories" kit (for the same price) comes with those plus a bunch of other accesories .. there are also a "premium" and "pro" kits with some extra stuff for some additional money ..

I was using an address in FL and showed a tax charge of almost $50 (though, again, I didn't actually purchase). Maybe no tax for AZ ... good for you ...

That discount in the ad is already included in the current price shown, at least for the KP: $1100 - $400 = $700. But using the coupon posted gives a further $111 discount (it shows in the cart, I haven't purchased). Unfortunately, with the tax ($50) and shipping ($11) part of the discount is lost ... The final total is $650

D FA 100mm Macro WR - B&H $380

B&H has a policy of refunding the price difference within the 30 day return period under certain circumstances (see below). In fact, last year I got almost $20 back from them after I purchased this same lens for around the same $380 price and the price went further down within a month.

This is a post from the B&H representative in a forum thread in 2014:


Our policy is B&H will gladly consider matching an authorized retailer for the same item. We must be able to verify the offer and that the item is available and ready to ship. We cannot honor verbal or phone quotes, coupon codes or any other promotional incentives.

After your purchase during the 30 day return period we can look into a price change, but the provisions for such an accommodation are a little different. Say for example an items price drops; we could possibly honor the price change for your purchase. On the other hand, say an item like the K3 gets an Instant Savings or Rebate both offered by Pentax through its dealers. These promotions usually have a valid date window so it could be your request could not be fulfilled because your purchase date was outside the Rebates purchase window.

Post sale price adjustments are handled on a case by case basis and it’s best to contact our Customer Service Department to have CS Rep look into your request.

Robertscamera in ebay has a listing for this lens, used but "mint-" (probably removed from the K-01's that they sell, also mint-), $110.56 with free shipping or best offer (more than 10 copies available). I offered $70, mentioning that it can be purchased new for $91 and it was accepted.

I still have it in my cart, but when I click on the item it goes to the home page (and also searching does not show the refurbished 300mm). Probably, it would give me an error if I try to go through the whole checkout (but I can't because they only allow billing and shipping addresses in Canada).

The "Crumpler 3 Million Dollar Home Camera Bag", which seems to be out of production but still available in Adorama:

Crumpler 3 Million Dollar Home Camera Bag, Navy/Rust Red MD3002-U04P30

This has been in closeout for a while and I got it for 19.95 and it may go back to that price. I was also available in purple but apparently not any more (and also green):

Crumpler 3 Million Dollar Home Bag MD3002-P01P30 B&H Photo Video

I use the 3 Million for a K-30 with a Sigma 18-50 without problem, and the quality is very good. There are bigger models (3, 4, 5, 6 Million) :

Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Navy/Rust) MD6002-U04P60 B&H

Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Green) MD6003-G12P60 B&H

Though not holster-style, but "orange", there is also

The small one has been for as low as 9.95 (this would hold K-30 but with very small lens)

K-01 auction dump from Roberts Camera
Posted By ragde
Replies: 22

I don't think any of the Roberts' K-01's have sold for under $50. The starting bid is $9.99 but the final price depends on how much the bidders are willing to pay. As I said, the final prices I have observed range from $130 to $200 (the low prices tend to be for the first ones in the batch and maybe the less appealing color). The first two of the current batch sold for $150 each (one black and one yellow) + $15 shipping. I doubt any will sell for less than $100. The one I got was in perfect condition (they say MINT-) and it seems all right though I haven't used it much. In each listing they list the accesories included and this seems to differ a little form one to other, though it seems all come with the battery and charger at least (and without the original box). They have 30 "Day Return Guarantee", so I think purchasing from them is almost risk free. They have a good reputation in ebay (99.4%). I have no relation to Roberts ...
