Pentax drops DSLR prices, adds K2000 kits

Pentax Cuts and K2000 Kits

Pentax on Wednesday spurred sales ahead of the PMA expo by slashing prices on its mainstream digital SLRs and launching a handful of new K2000 kits. The 14.6-megapixel K20D mid-range camera is getting an immediate $100 discount that lasts until February 22nd; the K2000 flash bundle that carries an 18-55m lens and an AF200FG external flash is also dropping permanently to $600. The special white K2000 bundle is also seeing a price reduction to $680.

The K2000 kits are mostly designed to run below the cost of the full flash model. A body-only model for those who already own Four Thirds lenses will sell for $500; a standard kit with an 18-55mm lens is set at $550. Topping the range is a two-lens kit that adds a 50-200mm telephoto lens for a $650 price. All three surface later this month.

Finally, the 10.2-megapixel K200D is getting a special deal that drops the price of a D-BG3 battery grip to $20 when bought alongside both the camera and a Pentax lens before the end of March.
