K-S1 & K50 on Amazon BF deals at 12pm/5pm (27th Nov)

The K-S1 seems to be a kit with the DAL 50/1.8, their current price is 639 (less the cashback) which is far from a bargain.

The K50 is a kit with the 18-15, currently at 631.89 less cashback, which isn't too bad a deal.

Could be good deals but I'd check the SRS price beforehand to be aware of what's really good or not.

I managed to buy the k50 kit on Monday for 469 with 18-135 lens. The allotment disappeared in seconds unsurprisingly and I had to go on the waiting list, but managed to get hold of one. Impatiently awaiting the new arrival...

I was about to press the button on part-exchanging my old k-m kit at SRS, so I might get to keep both now. Though that depends on what the wife says...!

Not surprising, bit of a duff offer.

SRS had this for 10 quid more and included 16GB card +lowepro case and also has a 2yr warranty.

Not a fan of the KS1 either. tbh.

The k50 deal is back on, and only 21% claimed, so seems to be much slower take up this time...

Sold all my Pentax gear and moved to m4/3 a few months ago and like using GX7 and GH4 but weather proof gear for this time of year I don't have and the weather resistant lenses for gh4 are expensive. So have picked up K50 with 18-135 and 55-300WR for just under 700 pounds. I had a k30 and read this is more or less the same so it was a no brainer for me. I did have a K3 but too heavy for me and with the lenses I had I liked the images from K30 more than the K3.

Thanks again
