As several other manufacturers are tempting consumers with money back offers on D-SLR purchases, Pentax UK doesn't want to be left out and is offering up to £100 cash back on its entry level SLR the *istDS. The promotion includes £50 for the *istDS body and the same amount for the smc Pentax DA 18-55mm lens. The *istDS is currently selling for £700 (RRP) body only or £799 with a 18-55mm lens. The offer is valid until May 31.
Pentax to Offer its Highly Acclaimed Entry Level Digital SLR, the *istDS, With Up To £100 Cashback
Bringing High-End Digital Photography Another Step Closer For Photographers of All Abilities
31st March 2005 - Pentax is delighted to announce that its latest digital SLR, the *istDS, is, for a limited time only, available with up to £100 cashback. One of the markets smallest and lightest digital SLRs, the *istDS has won many plaudits since being introduced in November 2004. Lightweight, stylish, compact and yet packing all the functionality and optical excellence that you would expect from a Pentax, the sales promotion will see £100 cashback being offered on *ist DS with smc Pentax DA 18-55mm AL Lens and £50 cashback on *ist DS body only. The promotion runs from the 4th April 2005 through to the 31st May 2005 and can be redeemed at all participating retailers.
Despite its compact body, the *istDS assures outstanding image quality thanks to its 6.1 effective megapixels and Pentax-original image processing technology. It is designed to be compatible with Pentax's interchangeable lenses - both old and new - to meet a wide range of applications and maximise visual creativity. To further enhance consumer choice, Pentax recently released the camera in a sleek silver finish, alongside the existing black version.
Already very competitively priced at £700.00 (body only) and £799.99 (with smc 18-55mm DA lens), the cashback promotion effectively sees a further £100 pounds taken off the body plus lens package. In so doing, it serves to bring the power of digital SLR photography within further reach of those photographers who are looking to make the step up to the SLR format.
Consumers can redeem their cash directly from Pentax, with the mechanic included in the product packaging.
