Not surprised the prices are dropping. They needed to get closer to the price of the Nikon D7100 to make it attractive.

This is also graduation season , and most firms , e.g. B&H and Adorama do great deals at this time for graduations and holidays.

Aye, they are really good prices. The retailers can only offer those prices if they are getting promotional support off Pentax USA..there's no way they would cut their throats just to shift boxes.

Begs the question why Pentax UK are not supporting their retailers to a similar extent over here. Even allowing for differences in taxation, customers over there are getting some stupendous deals.

Some examples just from one retailer..B+H as linked to by Rob2402 ;

1. K50 c/w BG-5 Grip and AF200FG flash, a camera bag and 16GB class 10 card..all for $522 which converts ($1.60 to 1) to 326!!

2. Normal price on K50 outside the above special offer is $497 = 311 for body and 32GB class 10 card

3. K50 c/w 18-55 DAL WR 18-55...$597 = 373 (only slightly better than SRS price now...however you can get the pick your own colour options for the same price)

4. K500 with 18-55 DAL absolute entry level but look at the price...$399 = 250!

5. K5IIs body with free 32GB class 10 card, $697 = 436!!

6. K3 c/w BG-5 Grip and 16GB Flu card...$1197 = 748!!

You've forgotten VAT & customs duty.
Even with VAT alone that's 447 vs 398 from SRS.

I know where I'd put my money
