Have you made puchases via this site? I checked some online reviews and got quite a bit of negative reviews, would put me off placing any orders there.

That looks like a classic bait-and-switch scam. I wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole.

Or, for a fraction more, you could get it from a larger, long established company (admittedly not a very photo-centric one) and worry a lot less - mine arrived next day and was sealed, new in box stock. Used a voucher code for free delivery and 10 off next purchase too

Pentax DA70 at Argos

*This is not an advert, just passing on my experience after struggling to source a DA70 from my usual suppliers without pawning a kidney - mods, feel free to edit/remove link.

that converts to $609 US $s. B&H has it for $550 for US buyers. I suspect customs would knock that up a bit in the U.K.

to get the cheapest price from a reputable seller its worth to either get a US based friend to ship it on to you... or aggrigate the purchases and take a trip to NY. If you time it right can get reasonably cheap flights to NY... and what better way to break in a new lens. I am fortunate enough that I travel to US for work and make a point of flying in via NY when possible.

Mainland Europe prices are generally terrible. If I purchase in Europe I do so in the UK and normally stick to Amazon (which ships for low cost to the European Mainland).
