Costco just published an ad (online only) that runs July 30th to August 19th with a special on the K-30. For $899 (delivered) you pick your color (just the black, blue and white) and comes with the 18-55mm lens, 8GB SD card, case plus it comes with Pentax WG-1 waterproof point and shoot camera. Sounds like a pretty decent deal, but after reading and checking out the Pentax Singapore website, I cant get a direct price comparison because the WG-1 has been replaced (still on the US for $229) by the WG-2.

I've played with some friends DSLR's, but I dont have a whole lot of experience with them (point and shoot guy here, but looking to change that). So I'm hoping the K-30 could be a good entry into the DSLR world.

Mostly I wanted to point out the ad and see what you guys thought.

There are currently two threads dicussing the Costco deal. It's a pretty good deal, the WG1 is a nice weather sealed P&S. If you need the 18-55 lens then you get the WG1 for the cost of the taxes.

I saw that ad being discussed last night, and I also thought it was a good deal. I have a friend who is shopping for his first DSLR, and I was going to point the Costco deal out to him.
