New K-5 Pricing Confusion
Sep 3, 2011

Can someone explain the new "pricing" for the K-5. I have never been in retail so maybe they have a special math. I was looking at purchasing a K-5 from an onlilne vendor for a price of $1,273. Pentax announced a $100 reduction in price with a $300 instant rebate. New price at the same online vendor $1,189, a difference of $84. So where did the other $316 go? I am confused!!
