Pentax K5ii/s Available in Melbourne

Good news

I went to C.R.Kennedy to pickup some flash shoe parts. While I was there, I asked when they were getting in the K5ii/s?
And they showed me one (K5iis) which came in today.
They said it might retail for around $1200-$1300 body only.

Now to start saving.

The guy in Sydney told me about 2 weeks they'll have them coming in.
When I rang this afternoon he said they didn't have any pre-orders for the IIs......yet.

some Trivia on pricing:

DCW K-5 IIs body = $1197 .........(You could buy three of them for 3 x $1197 = $3591 )

DCW D800e body = $ 3689

And have a trial version of photoshop on hand.


For me I just remain silent and thank god that my wife cannot tell the difference between my K-7 K-5 and K-30. I just need to ensure that two are never out of the bag at the same time.

The K-5IIs will slot into its roll without detection

Hope he only meant they don't have any pre-orders from Sydney - I pre-ordered one a week ago.

Well, it was just what the guy in Sydney who answered the phone told me that.

They might have one more order by this afternoon.

If any of the stores in the city have stock when I walk there at lunchtime DCW might have one less pre-order.
