UK's K5 price rise
Apr 5, 2012

I've read about the price increase in the USA of Pentax lenses but I just noticed that the main camera sellers for Pentax in the UK have just increased the price of the K5 with the standard 18-55 WP lens by £100.

This weeks AP magazine shows the price at SRS microsystems at £729, however, on the web today SRS Microsystems, Clifton cameras & WEX photographic etc. have all increased this by £100. or £829 in total.

So, did Hoya reduce the price in the UK together with a £90 rebate to bring in the cash before being handed over to Ricoh?, that's a smart move, more cash and deplete stock levelsl before April's takeover. Anyway, I can't complain as I bought mine at the start of the rebate and saved a packet it would seem. any other thoughts?

Pentax K-5
