Pentax K-1 Getting $550 Optional Upgrade with K-1 II Internals

Putting to shame larger camera manufacturers, Pentax announced that existing Pentax K-1 photographers (this is a two year old camera, announced February 2016 [see New Cameras of 2016]) won’t be left behind! They are offering an optional $550 hardware upgrade to the K-1 that will give it the K-1 II internals. The service will be provided by the trusty Precision Camera of Austin::Texas between May 21 and September 30 in 2018. The service won’t be available before or after this date range. Details at the press release which describes the changes as follows (with more details as we get closer to upgrade time):

“The PENTAX K-1’s main circuit board will be replaced to add new functions featured in the new PENTAX K-1 MKII. Additionally the current SR logo on the PENTAX K-1 MKII will be replaced with the new PENTAX K-1 MKII logo.”

Speaking of the upcoming K-1 II, Amazon itself is now accepting pre-orders for $2000 but unlike Adorama and B&H Photo, Amazon does not currently include the Pentax D-BG6 for FREE with pre-orders. Eventually the Amazon AI Bots may wake up and add it but for now, it’s not included.

It will be interesting to see what this upgrade option will do to the used prices of the Pentax K-1, since the Upgrade optional increases the value potential of the camera. However, the four month upgrade window further complicates things since there is a cut-off point. The lowest used price as of the time of writing is $1600 in “Used – Condition 10” at B&H Photo and “Like New Minus” at KEH Camera. Amazon’s own Warehouse Deals (not 3rd-party sellers there) offers it for $1428 but no warranty (KEH offers 180 days, B&H 90 days). Warehouse Deals offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee only. Mayhaps some Options Trading technology may be needed to figure this one out 🙂

The new K1 II flagship is available as body only for $2000 and with HD Pentax-D FA L 28-105mm F3.5/5.6 ED for $2400! Pre-orders are accepted as follows:

Pentax KP with 50mm f1.8 DA for $947

Yesterday we completed the 35mm Full Frame Price Charts write-up. Now the process has began for the APS-C DSLRs version with the price-checking round!

The Pentax KP is down $100 since the November 2017 APS-C price charts and it is getting a handful of free accessories for its new $900 price at Adorama.

But if you don’t want/need the extra accessories or want a “take pictures with” kit, then $947 will get you the black Pentax KP with 50mm f1.8 DA with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. The lens goes for $110+ on its own, so you are essentially getting it for half price.

The new condition Rokinon T-Mount Adaptor for Pentax K T2-PK is on sale for $4 (yes, four dollars) by Amazon itself, with up to three of them per customer. They are however an ADD-ON item, so you must needs place a $25+ order, otherwise their shopping cart won’t let you buy it.

Prime Credit Cards Only: Buy Pentax K70 with 18-135 for $850, Get $170 statement credit

This offer is bit more complicated, so please read carefully!

The Pentax K70 body only goes for $600, while the K70 with the 18-135mm goes for $850 at B&H Photo and Adorama in either the black or the silver color schemes.

The same prices are available at Amazon by Amazon actual. Of these kits, only the K70 with 18-135mm kits are eligible for the 20% statement credit IF you pay with a Prime credit card. You pay $850 at checkout, and after your credit card statement closes, you receive a $170 statement credit.

If you purchase the K70 body only from Amazon, and pay with a Prime credit card, you will only receive the standard 5% statement credit, not a 20% statement. Only the “K70 with 18-135” kits are eligible.

EXAMPLE

As always, double check that the product you are about to buy is eligible for this promotion by making sure the offer is mentioned on its product page. Take a screenshot as well to be on the same side! Example for the K70 with 18-135 vs the K70 body only:

The K70 with 18-135mm is eligible as you can see

The K70 body only is NOT eligible. The offer is NOT mentioned on its product page

This is a limited time offer! You can find details and all the eligible products through the Prime 20% Statement Credit offer page.

Prime Credit Cards Only: Buy Pentax KP for $880, Get $176 statement credit

The two Pentax K-P bodies range from $880 to $900 at Adorama and B&H Photo.

The same prices are available at Amazon by Amazon itself.

For more details on the 20% statement credit offer, read the introductory post, I don’t want to repeat the whole thing in every post.

This is a limited time offer! You can find details and all the eligible products through the Prime 20% Statement Credit offer page.

Prime Credit Cards Only: Buy Pentax K-1 Body for $1900, Get $380 Statement Credit

The Pentax K-1 body goes for $1900 with a FREE Pentax D-BG6 Battery Grip at B&H Photo and Adorama.

It also goes for $1900 at Amazon by Amazon itself but Amazon does not include the free Battery Grip. HOWEVER, if you are a Prime member, and you pay for this purchase sold and shipped by Amazon, paid with either Prime credit card, you will receive $380 back as a statement credit! I don’t want to repeat the details of this promotion in every post, read the introductory post here.

The battery grip costs $220 on its own, so the statement credit offer handily defeats the free battery grip.

Here’s how the Amazon product page looks when this promotion is alive and kicking:

Pentax K-3 II Body drops to $830 or $846 with BG-5 Battery Grip

And now, the moment you have all been waiting for! I am beginning a full price check of all cameras tracked in the Camera Price Charts. This will basically cover almost all of the DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, along with the serious fixed lens cameras with RAW (above 1/2.x” sensor size). Hide your wallets!

We start in K-landia where the Pentax K-3 II body only has dripped down to $830 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a up to three units per customer.

But if you want the official Pentax battery grip to go with it, the BG-5, you can get them together as a bundle for $847 with free shipping at B&H Photo.

Used Pentax AF-330FTZ Zoom Flash for $13 + S&H

The Pentax AF-330FTZ Zoom Flash currently has two used listings at Adorama in “Excellent Minus” condition for $13.50 plus shipping (around $5). This is an old model. The listings for it are bare bones, no picture, no description, but the manufacturer code is the correct one, PXSAF330FTZ. If you don’t see any used listings at the link above, it means they sold out. Adorama offers a 30-day return and 90-day warranty of their own, so you are covered in case there’s an error in the listing. So a bit of YMMV.

Still available: Pentax K-1 Silver Limited Edition

The Pentax K-1 Silver Limited Edition (body only with official battery grip) is out of stock and cannot be ordered at Amazon and B&H Photo, but hope is not lost!

Adorama comes to the rescue. As of the time of writing it remains in-stock and shipping for $2200 with free expedited shipping over there. Optional financing offers are available with the new Adorama Credit Card.

Yes, Adorama has an official credit card, offered by Comenity Capital Bank per the listing over there.

New Lens Instant Savings II: Pentax, Sigma, Rokinon, Samyang, Olympus

The previous Lens Instant Savings post got crowded, so now we have a Part II with some of the other lens manufacturers!

+ Pentax K-Lenses: 42 options including 24-70/2.8 SDM for $1100, 70-200/2.8 AW for $1600, 100/2.8 WR Macro for $500, etc

+ Rokinon Lenses (various systems): 92 options with a mix of photography-priority and video-priority lenses including Sony E-system autofocus lenses
+ CORRECTED: an “option swith” is “options with” with the “s” at the wrong place 🙂

More on these later on, as, unfortunately, I am not IBM’s Watson and I cannot “digest” hundreds of lenses (over 500 of them in these two posts) on the fly. Not to mention that glass causes indigestion. Mayhaps I’ll start with the plastic lenses first 🙂

Refurbished Sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6 DG OS (Pentax) for $189

Pentax K-3 II Body with BG-5 Battery Grip for $853

I typically round prices for simplicity but in this case, the exact price is Jermaine Jackson (okay, germane) to the deal…

But if you forgo a supersized Starbucks frappuccino, for $853 with free shipping you can get the K-3 II body only with the official Pentax BG-5 battery grip for $853 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. $7 more for the battery grip is pretty, pretty, pretty good!

Pentax KP with 18-55 and Extras for $1000

Somehow I strayed from the alphabetical price-checking and finished the S-cameras before the P-cameras. To the P-cameras we go! The Pentax KP body only goes for $1000 in new condition at authorized dealers. At the moment, there is a promotion that for the same price you also get the Pentax SMCP-DA 18mm-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL Weather Resistant AF Lens for FREE, such as B&H Photo in either the silver or the black color scheme.

But wait, there’s more! At Adorama, for the same price, you also get a handful of free accessories, which if you don’t need, you can put them in various camera-related gifts during the upcoming holiday season 🙂 The additional freebies at Adorama are 24/7 Traffic Collection holster, 16GB Sandisk SD card, USB card reader, cleaning kit and the Corel software bundle (five titles as usual, AfterShot, PaintShop, VideoShop, etc).

This offer at Adorama with the freebies is available in both the silver KP DSLR kit and the black KP DSLR kit. The free lens is included, you have to expand the “Bundle Includes” section, it is the last one in the list. Here’s a screenshot:
