Some Pentax K-50 options with free AF-200FG flash start at $367

The Pentax K-50 is available in three colors and three kits, making price-checking and deciding a bit of a project. But it may be worth the time because Adorama has many offers and some of them come with the AF-200FG for free (automatically included by Adorama – when you see this mentioned right below the price on the right side of the page). Be sure to pay attention to each individual listing as there are many and each has a slightly different offer.

The action starts at $367 with the K-50 body only kits. The black is out of stock (but you can still order it) while the Storm Trooperish White is in-stock. However, in terms of pure value, for $400 you can get the K50 body only kits with a $50 Adorama gift certificate and a 4GB EyeFi memory card in black and white and red.

The K-50 with 18-55 kits start at $450 in the exotic colors (no free flash) but at $457 for the standard colors (white, black, red) you get the free flash and 4GB EyeFi card.

The K-50 with 18-55 and 50-200 two lens kits go for $550 and they too come with the free flash and 4GB EyeFi card in the usual white, black and red colors.
