Pentax K-70 for 160 with Amazon Prime Student

And 200 for regular Amazon accounts.

For some reason they're stacking the 200 promo twice, like they did with the KP cameras a while back. Figured it out right after committing to buy a K-70 off eBay to replace my brother's K-S2. The seller wouldn't cancel so that'll be on the classifieds soon...

The promo stack on the KP brings it to 539.

The K1ii for 1399 (and extra 20% off for Student account).

You need to add the item to the basket and then start the checkout process. It appears after the address and just before the payment section.

Yes I just bought one for 199 (That I don't actually need lol)

It was also working on KP and K-1ii but the K-1ii has been corrected. Obviously an Amazon error so chance they will rescind the deal but worth a punt.

Fantastic bargain for anyone looking for a new DSLR. I'm tempted myself despite the K-70 offering very little over my K-3.

Too late. Looks like Amazon have twigged and have pulled the plug on it.

It went up on HotUKdeals and was shot down pretty quickly after :/

On a positive note, the K-70 I got off eBay isn't a bad deal considering the best price new is 395, and that's only for another week or so.

The 395 is until December 31st on SRS

Now extended to 12th Jan with code PENTAXK70 - might just get one at that price!
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

"Struggling to resist" a K-70 from SRS at that price as the K-30/"K-50" is "getting on a bit" (bought Nov 2013) , and has a broken battery-retainer latch in the battery compartment.
Give me a few reasons why I SHOULD or SHOULD NOT buy the K-70?

Go on you know you should - I was in the same quandary before Christmas but yielded to the temptation and bought a K-70 from SRS. No reason not too as my last new Pentax a K-30 was 6 years old and had cost me almost as much. I've only taken a handful of photos so far using an old DA 50-200 ED. The results are impressive (to my eyes). I'm easily able to extract better resolution and the focusing is faster.
