Launch prices

Available since October 2012, the Pentax K-5 II currently carries list pricing of around US$1,100 body-only, a full US$500 less than the price at which its predecessor originally launched, and US$100 below its own launch price. As it did with the earlier camera, Pentax also offers two kit versions bundling weather-sealed lenses. The 18-55mm kit now lists at around US$1,250, while the 18-135mm kit lists for US$1,450. In all cases, street pricing is even more affordable. As of this writing, you can pick up the K-5 II body-only for under US$1,000, and the 18-55mm kit for about US$1,150. The 18-135mm kit, meanwhile, can be had for US$1,350.
