K-5 price in Perth?

Hi mates there in down under.

I have a friend visiting Perth and I was wondering what's the K-5 price in there as here in Chile it's extremely expensive.
The idea of mine is to get my friend to buy this marvelous piece of engineering and bring it to me at the beginning of December (my Christmas present) to replace my K-7.
Body only or normal kit would be ok.

I'd be also interested to know if there's a K-5 + DA 18-135 kit available there, as I'd like to own reasonable quality multi purpose lens.

Thanks a lot in advance.
BR. Timo

Digital Direct has the K5 at $1155. I asked Michaels if they would do the same deal and it was an instant yes. I have used Digital Direct online order and postage system a lot and am happy with their service and response when I have had questions.

hahaha i know the feeling. I asked for a new k5 for last xmas and then later for my birthday when i wasnt succesful at xmas. I ended up getting nothing at all. Not even a cake. So now im going to try and leave the advert on my screen and keep my mouth shut. Not wanting to sell my K10D didnt help matters.

Do you think prices will drop pre-Christmas sales?. $1250 seems to be average atm.

What if there are no sony sensors due to the floods in Thailand. Maybe prices will go back up or the K5 could be unavailable.
