It is not just the K5 that is expensive here. Almost everything is more expensive than many oversea countries except kangaroo...
It is cheaper to import a silver K5 Ltd and pay GST than to pay RRP black K5...
Guess it is a free market, free country and the government has intervened... when the price is down (like the milk story) ...

Enjoy photography!

I asked in JB HI and they said $1800.00 and wouldn't budge. I haven't seen it any lower than that price myself.
I bought mine from JB with almost no haggling for $1,539. I don't even ask or look at the JB sticker price, there's no point, I just mentioned DCW has it for $1,569, what price can you do? They said $1,539. OK I said, sold. There were no extras or extended warranties or anything attached to this price, that is the "bare" price I paid for the body. The negotiation was literally 1 minute. Maybe this varies JB store to JB store

At $1,800 they have a lot of room to move still, unless CRK sell at different prices to different stores which I kind of doubt.

These prices surprise me considering I bought one of the first K5's in the country from Vanbar for $1495.00 and yes it did have stains and was replaced.

Indeed - This would surprise lots of others too since you claimed to have paid $1595 from Vanbar according to your posts on Whirlpool at the time that is ...

(In case you forgot Brendan - it was during your Osama phase as opposed to your Mallacoota phase....)
