Photocontinental has the K7 listed online for $1,639

PENTAX K7 BODY DIGITAL SLR 14.6MP CAMERA

K20D at $1,339

Bit of a no brainer, provided you already have a camera, and can wait a little

Don't take it as gospel mate, it may well be more like $1600, that was just initially being told. Most places seem to be stocking AROUND $1600 or so, a fair price imo.

I have a contact inside Teds in town so I should be able to get it a bit cheaper.

Incidentally they list it with kit lens for 1699.

Yeah i'll be trying to get some numbers tomorrow (after I finish this assignment, god the release of this camera was bad timing heh) and then will give the call round and see what sort of prices possibly with multiple orders.

So if you're 100% keen let me know. Remember prices arne't fixed yet, so i'd leave a little room for error in the prices given so far.
I'm keen...Count me in.

The Australia price seems good. I am pleasantly surprised that the K-7 retail for less than A$2000. Great price for a camera of this much features.

I was expecting it to be over the 2k mark

I think we all were! Noted the guys above expressing interest. This all depends on the fact people can't simply decide to pull out cause they change their mind etc. It'd screw with totals and in turn if/how muchc heaper we could get it.

It's a while off yet before it's stocked, so I figure if we get some interest, I can call a few retailers and suss out pricing.

Lukey, hit up CRK too. We need to send them a well worded email.

In this economy i'd hope some one is keen to relieve us all of $12k-$14K (and that is just for 10 cameras).

BTW, CRK sell to the public anyway. They will price match the online shops from overseas. For those reasons it is certainly worth asking them.

What sort of numbers are we talking? 10, 20?
