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.
