Interesting that you got a grip as well. I pre-ordered the grip, but Kirks didn't get any in their delivery. We assumed none were sent to Oz. Seems we were wrong.

So I wander into the shop thinking they may have a K1.Yes,its there,but I have no intention of buying until I saw what it can do.Absolutely the best ive seen,so came home with one,but it had a K in front of the 1.

On goes the Sigma 24 super wide and I start shooting everything.ok all good.

Then a walk down to the beach,wow am I glad I got it!

Excellent deal! dcxpert are great sellers.

But hey CRK - why was my local warranty only 12 months? I even registered my K-1 purchase on Pentax.com.au.

In Nikon-land, if you do the same thing on the local Nikon site, Nikon gives you a two year warranty. In Pentax, the warranty duration process seems totally random.

Thankfully we have the Competition and Consumer Act 2010, I guess, to render many of these warranty issues moot.

Everything is 2 years forced warranty by Fair Trading. The manufacturer gives 1 year and higher priced items with expected lifetime must come with an additional 1 year by the retailer, it is supported by the retailer, distributor and manufacturer, it's your rights as a consumer.

Dcxpert site is showing two available and it is showing as "in stock" (but more expensive) on Pentax site.

---------- Post added 06-07-16 at 11:47 AM ----------

Also showing as "in stock" at Teds...perhaps early shortages are being addressed.
