As above, I see it as starting at 4pm, but I'm not sure if Amazon detect that I'm on CET rather than UK time, so it could be 3pm UK.

Their current price is 576.89, and this should be eligible for the 40 cashback too. Even without a deal it's a good price.

Definitely 4pm UK time. Thanks for the heads up.

639 at SRS; 599 after cashback, so I guess it's a gamble on a 1 year Amazon warranty vs. 2 year with SRS.

Just ordered one. 459.99; 419.99 after cashback. They're not exactly flying off the shelf, but then it is 4pm on Christmas Eve!

The 18-135 costs 325 new, so if you want that lens you get a K-50 for just 95!

Ah, but order the 18-135 separately and it comes with its own box. It's not going to make a jot of difference to your shots, but it will affect resale value.

This deal seems to have gone.

The deal is back on again. Comes up at 6pm today. I imagine it will be much the same price. i.e. 459.99, before 40 cashback.

Is this a Pentax supported promotion to clear out stock ahead of a new model?

Mine arrived this morning. Seems fine, although I'm finding there are a few more differences in functionality between the K-50 and the K-5 than I'd expected.

If anyone wants the K-50 & 18-135WR deal go now to the Argos outlet shop on Ebay. I did so a few minutes ago. There were 10 available so I successfully ordered and paid for mine. Delivery is estimated 23-25 February. So you will have to be patient.

Just checked the site again and now showing 9 available. These are probably the last ones for the price 379.99, delivery free.

Good luck
