A curious idea, let's put prices up 100 so the dealers can offer 50 body only or 80 off with a lens.

This is what is dropping me upgrading to a k5. Begrudge paying the new price to have it brought back to previous price with the cashback

Well you don't have to claim it if you don't want it!

699 for a camera body that is forced up (like many of the lenses) in price to 799 and then to have a partial restoration with a 50 voucher claim nonsense.

Doesn't seem like Pentax UK have quite got what it is to build loyalty does it?

It's an opportunity to buy at a reduced price based on today's prices. Yesterday's prices were yesterday's and in keeping with the general rise in prices from all marques. They just hit at different times.

I would buy while the going is good. After the offer, it will just cost more again.
Best regards, John

It's not he dealer that offers you 50 off though its a cash back deal, so the offer is with Pentax.

At Amazon price is currently 740.41 - 50 = 690.41, so price is lower than before price increase...

Remember they also have to get rid of stock before they announce the K3 and Kz
K5iis and a couple of lenses.

Must be a US/UK thing as the price here is still around GBP550 body only.

Not for long. Prices always drop when new models come out. Look at the price of a K-r now to its price when it came out.
By the way, thanks to Keir for the original post in Leads to Deals where this would sit better.

This is not a Lead to a Deal in the acceptance sense of the phrase (bargain offer from a particular source), but an official Pentax promotion that runs for 2.5 months, which is probably why John has left it where it was posted.
