Merchandise at the Australian Pentax Webstore

I don't know how long it's been there, but I just noticed a new "Merchandising" category at the Australian Pentax Webstore. It is outrageously expensive: Aus$74.95 for caps, $59.95 for T-shirts, $89.95 for the O-HC171 Pentax 100 hot shoe cover, and $14.95 for 6x7, K-1, and LX pins.

But, everything is "In Stock".

Rather more than I'd be willing to pay, but someone might be interested.

At those prices, I expect this will be the case for some time...

Yikes, with these prices it might almost be better to just buy from the US webstore or work with someone to have them buy it and ship it to you.

Nice selection though. Even when you factor in the USD to AUD conversion the prices are somewhat high, but the quality may be better too.

Ah ha! I think I've worked it out. Those aren't prices. They're how much Pentax is willing to pay you to walk around in their advertising billboards.

Makes much more sense.
