Cheapest k-01 + 40mm in EU

I really fell in love with the looks of the k-01 (call me nuts if you like) and when I heard about the situation I made up my mind to find a cheap one. I know that you can get the k-01 with 40mm in the USA for 360 dollars. If you have any idea where to find the best deals in EU. Need it vat free so that is why EU is my choice. I have found it for 460€, is there a cheaper place?

Or then the best deal for the body!!!

I really thank you for the help I can get.

Best Regards

Jan Strandstrom

They don't have the kit in stock, and as I understood they can't get any more stock.

I got my silver body from ComputerUniverse.net. For shipment to Finland, they list the 40XS bundle for about 430€, but it looks like they don't have any in stock, just the black body and the zoom lens bundles.

I was lucky, got a great deal with the 40mm XS for 399 euro last summer. But after that promotion it went back up and was slowly declining. It really should be priced more competitively

I got the best deal I guess, but not available for you at the time. Prices don't go down as much. Maybe less stock to clear, or less margin to write-off on.
