2 days ago I bought a K-01 for $299.95 at Ted's in Adelaide. I love it. People who hate it don't know what they're missing.
Wow, I didnt imagine you'd get one of those, but glad U like it.


I must have some self control issues. On Friday I saw that K-01 price at Teds but instead ordered their Q - kit they have. - extremly limited last stock ever , suure
404 Not Found - Ted's Cameras - edit (oh i think it really is gone now )

Anyway the thing is I'll probably get the Q-K adapter before long which costs the same again for the good one.

Then I'll be able to turn your old Sigma 8-16 into a 45 - 90mm moderate tele zoom using only the centre of the glass .

Hi Steve, I hope the lens is doing well. I'll probably end up buying another one of those but not for awhile yet. I quite like the K-01.. for $299 it has to be one of the best value cameras of all-time.

Yep, I bought a Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO Macro HSM II Lens here last year. Great price. Packaging was a bit knocked about, I guessed it might have been gear they could not sell in store. Anyway no complaints from me. Wish I could justify the K5
I must have jinxed myself, the HSM on the Sigma 70-200mm lens failed on Saturday. Email to seller on Saturday night and I received a phone call this afternoon assuring me the lens was under warranty. Paperwork and delivery instructions etc also received via email today. I will send it off for repair tomorrow.

I must say I am impressed so far by the service.
