Rokinon T-Mount Adaptor for Pentax K T2-PK for $4

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.

This too is eligible for the 20% statement credit offer, getting you a giant $0.80 statement credit 🙂

Speaking of small accessories, the Rokinon M67 67 Inch Lightweight Photo/Video Monopod with Carrying Case goes for $18.56 and this too eligible for the 20% Prime Credit Card statement credit (that’s a $3.71~ statement credit or so).

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. But if you are a Prime member, and PAY with either Prime credit card, you will receive a 20% statement credit, around $176 for the silver KP and around $180 for the black KP. 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:

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

The Rokinon D900AFZ-PK Digital TTL Zoom Flash for Pentax is also part of the items eligible for the automatic 20% in-cart discount for products sold and shipped by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself (not 3rd-party sellers). After the 20% off in-cart discount its price drops to $18.66~. It has two customer reviews only and they are both unhappy, so if you are not familiar with this, be sure to google around or check in forums and such to make sure this is not a total disaster.

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.

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 🙂

Somehow I strayed from the alphabetical price-checking and finished the S-cameras before the P-cameras. To the P-cameras we go!

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:
