Pentax K-70 DSLR (body only) at Amazon for £199

Posted 18th Nov 2018
Not the usual Canon/Nikon DSLR here, but a bonkers cheap deal nonetheless.

Pentax K-70 is a very well reviewed midrange APS-C DSLR, mixing it well with Canon & Nikon equivalents, whilst having the benefit of excellent weather sealing, and in-body stabilisation.

Amazon currently have it on offer at £399, which is cheap in itself, along with a further £200 discount on promotion - taking it to a lovely £199.

Those with student discount are also bizarrely getting a further 20% off - £159.10 is basically daylight robbery!

You've got the added benefit of an abundance of used Pentax lenses on eBay, with excellent value to be had (just be sure to check compatibility here).

Fill your boots!

You've spoilt it for us all!
I ordered this at 8.20pm last night and have just got a despatch notification from Amazon that it's been sent via Royal Mail 24. I've got a Student account, so also got the random 20% additional discount. Wasn't holding much hope of this materialising, so very happy!
Purely for my own entertainment, I like to believe it's someones job at Amazon to decide who is worth of orders, and who isn't.

Assuming that's with student discount also? I don't know why it's given us another 20% off - thought it was meant to be 5%...
Must be! Bargain - thanks
I would be very surprised if this goes through. They are certainly double-counting that £200 discount
They seem to have cocked up. Other sites are 600 with 200 off, think Amazon meant to equate to 400 too but messed up
It's worth mentioning I've had cameras on a "double discount" before with Amazon (namely the Sony A7II), and it went through okay..
As long as we keep it quiet, Black Friday officially starts on Sunday!
Great deal. Thanks OP

You won't get this unless you click Expired. Not that you should do that. Just saying.

Pentax limited lenses are beautifully made. Lots of lovely glass available for these but not particularly cheap. That said, their budget end nifty fifty 1.8 is often on sale and gives wonderful results. Same for the 35mm 2.8. There is a world of old pentax fit lenses available for this. I've ordered. Was really wanting a Pentax KP but this is far too good to pass up.
Threw in an order, let's see if they honour it!

Doubt my ancient full frame Pentax lenses from my 35mm days will work with this, but I can keep an eye out for a 50mm if Amazon actually honour this!

Threw an order in. Too cheap not to. I’ve an Olympus E-520 at the minute with three lenses. Camera though has an issue with the power button. Dirt on the contacts that needs cleaned out to get it to work. Always been too afraid to try. Wonder what I could get it for plus a kit 14-42 lens, 40-150 and 70-300 on Fleabay...
Wow hot ordered thanks op 🏻
