Sorry Chris, I didn't express myself very well! Yes, I did realise that the 80+100 would be added only once, I just needed to know the number of items I could add. Seeing WVBarnes reply I can see it's more than one!

I shall now make my list to email you.

Bill (wvbarnes) gets a trade in of 225 for a well used k5 with 19000 actuations and a kit lens. So total cost to bill was 374. Now that is a good deal.....a real no brainer.
I have an immaculate k5 with less than 2000 (used as back up), and contacted srs for a trade trade in. They offered 175. So total cost to me would be 425. Now you cant tell me a 18-55 kit lens would add another 50 to the trade in value. Srs would sell my k5 for 349.

Perhaps it's a timing thing? Maybe they work on quotas like other sales driven offers? I know they have 8 K5 & II's on ebay....
I waited a long time on their offer for the Pentax DA*300 last year and then made my mind up and offered a Canon fit Sigma 100-300 F4 HSM EX DG among others, and they offered 200 P-x for the sigma. I thought that was particularly poor so Part exchanged it at another retailer and they offered 320 and then sold that lens 3 days later for 364.
Now I've been a customer with srs since the late 80's when I lived nearby, and have always found them a fair bunch to deal with, so I put their poor offer down to the fact that they'd probably hit their quotas on that deal.
I was contemplating the K3 and DA1.4 and was going to contact them about a px but get the feeling from your post I may have missed the boat again!

The K3 listing was 30 cheaper the week before the extra 100 trade in offer was added to the 80 off at till.

Lens prices are all over the place. I bought a used 300 * F4 for 599 from Park Cameras and then new ones dropped to 639 at SRS around Black Friday and now look where they are.

Mind you look at used prices on here. Some ask more than current new deals, others sell off at silly prices.
I for one have run out of wife's goodwill for now or I would have bought the rest of the well priced star lenses on offer.

At least with this forum we can keep well informed.

We are now selling used K-5's for between 229 and 249......

So 175 for a part-exchange plus 100 bonus when upgrading to a K-3 is a pretty good deal....

Thats fair enough chris, i know the value of the k5 is dropping, and 425 for a k3 is still a good deal. So if i included an 18-55 kit lens would i have got a trade in value of 225?, and thats with a k5 with 17,000 less actuations.

If the kit lens is the 18-55mm WR complete with hood, then we can allow a further 50 to make the 225....

Chris, finished charging the new k-3. Couple of quick shots of the cats (I know) at ISO 3200 show what a good purchase it was. Thanks to you and everyone else at SRS for your service.

If the items are in good condition, we would allow 250 for the K-5 and an original Pentax D-BG4 grip.

Any questions then please ask!

Another happy SRS customer here. I part-exchanged my K5 + 18-55WR (225) for a K-3 and also got the instant 100 SRS part-exchange bonus and the 80 Pentax cash-back. So, the price to change amounted to 364. What a bargain! AND you get a two-year warranty. AND you get to deal with people who know their products inside out and will spare the time to talk you through them. What's more, they don't try to force lots of extras on you that you don't need. I wish all companies were such a pleasure to deal with. Many thanks.
Chris

I also got the same deal as Dotandcom. But the main reason I am posting is to say what a tremendous sales service I also got from SRS. Nothing was too much trouble and Chris and his team are a pleasure to deal with. A massive 'Thank You' !!
Best regards

SRS have done me a great deal on a K3 Prestige on the current offer. Part exchange was for a spare 50mm f1.7 A series lens which was valued very fairly and allowed me to receive the 100 bonus and the 80 cashback which amounted to an excellent price for this cracking camera. Great service and very impressed with the part exchange process where all delivery/collection costs are included and SRS arrange the collection etc.
Thanks again to the team at SRS, in particular Doug who kept in touch through the whole process. I look forward to the next purchase....secretly hoping for a special offer on a HD Pentax 16 - 85mm which will go nicely with my K3, when my savings have recovered a little
