In conjunction with the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International Expo (WPPI), taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 11–13, 2013, Pentax Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation announced consumer mail-in rebates on its 645D medium-format system as well as select Limited-series lenses when bundled with its K-5 IIs flagship DSLR.
The rebates, valid from March 11–31, 2013, range from $250 to $500. Photographers who purchase a 645D camera body will receive a free D-FA 55mm lens and a $500 Pentax Visa prepaid card on the purchase of the D-FA 25mm and HD 90mm lens when purchased at the same time as the body, for a total savings of $1,000.
Additionally, consumers who purchase the K-5IIs camera body will receive a $250 Pentax Visa prepaid card on the purchase of the FA 31mm, 43mm and 77mm Limited-series lenses when purchased at the same time as the body—for a combined savings of up to $750.
“We are pleased to offer significant savings on our cameras and lenses in conjunction with the Wedding and Portrait Photographer International show,” said John Carlson, Sr., manager, Marketing, Pentax. “Photographers can purchase the complete 645D system for significantly less than most other medium format bodies, and the Limited lenses offered with the K-5IIs are some of the sharpest built for portrait photography.”
The Visa gift cards can be used anywhere Visa is accepted. For consumers to receive their Pentax Visa prepaid card, after purchasing a qualifying Pentax product between March 11–31, 2013, they must mail in the completed rebate form, the original or copy of their receipt for the purchase(s) and the original UPC barcodes(s) from the package of each qualifying product.
