How much is Tamron 90/f2.8 and Pentax DFA100/f2.8 in Australia?

Hi

I am looking to buy either the Tamron 90/f2.8 or Pentax DFA100/f2.8 in Australia.

May I know what kind of price range I am looking at, new and used?

Thanks!

Tamy looks to be around AUD$669 at Camera action.

Here is the link to the Pentax: Pentax Macro 100mm f2.8 Lens SMCP-D FA f2.8

Not sure where you are based. Buying from the States is cheaper.

I bought my Tamron SP 90mm macro from a store here ... big mistake that was.
It was $699AUD ... then i found that Digital Camera Warehouse Australia - Discount Digital Cameras shipped Australia Wide - Home was cheaper.
Then I look overseas ... and it is even more cheap (ie: absolute bargain compared to here).

And knowing online stores here (especially if they don't have items in stock) ... you'll have your order from overseas delivered quicker than within Australia.

^^^ someone loss is someone gain
you paid a premium for the tamron Simon but you score well from your Tamron TC 1.4X

As i missed out online auction by 5sec on the tamron TC

a well back to the drawing board
cheers

Thanks very much for all your links. I think it would be wise to save some money by ordering from overseas.

Oh,

Should add that if you purchase overseas, you can send your invoice and details to Pentax in the States, they will mail you back a one year international warranty.

If your Pentax product dies, your warranty is valid in Australia.

This alone makes purchasing bodies or lenses not worth the price here.

Thanks for that Dale .... I will keep this in mind as well.
Good to know that you can actually get some warranty from purchasing overseas.
