Is the kr available in Bangkok PANTIP?

Am travelling to Bangkok in the new year and thought I should check out the prices for a kr at Pantip Plaza.
Has anyone any info as to stockists and current prices?

I believe there are a couple shops there that have prices online, do some searches, maybe even a pantip forum or something.

I go to bkk regularly and have yet to see it. Pentax is dead in Thailand pretty much. You can buy the k-x , k-20, k-7 at big camera. I picked up the sales sheet today. But verrrry expensive. I have been asking about the k-5 and the k-r. But no one even knows what i am talking about. I bought one camera there and it was just a rip. My suggestion is buy in your own country. That is what i do now.
Pantip has a pentax shop. With a sign anyway. But last time there i did not see anything much.
If that helps.

by the way why would you want to buy in bkk? just curious.

To be honest when I was there (numerous times) over the last two years (malaysia and HK also) I found prices in the US to be best of all. Now Canada seems to have some of the best prices. Maybe Nikon which is made in Thailand might be a bit better. But even that stuff wasnt much cheaper than in NA. I cant imagine its that much more for stuff in aus?

I agree with deimos, If you are going to buy out of country anyway. I would find the cheapest price.
Because i guarantee you it is not cheaper here by any means.

Pentax not popular and nothing in Bangkok......people here just know Canon & Nikon......some for Sony, Olympus & Lumix.


Out of many, one Pentax!
