Best Australian price yet for K1?

Digidirect is selling the K1 (body only) for $2509 (ends June 26). I believe this is clearly the cheapest seen in Australia to date. I ordered mine this morning and it is already ready for pickup at their Melbourne store.

I was in there the other day and they had one on the shelf. One of the nearby stores also had one at $2700 or thereabouts.

Tempted but can't justify it just yet

Looks like a great deal! Rare to see a listing below MSRP this early.

It's 10% off everything at Digidirect for the next 3 days; the K1 is just swept up in the general frivolity. Too good for me to pass up.

I also dropped my Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art at CRK for mount modification this morning, and have just taken possession of a D FA 28-105 and D FA 70-200, so I'm just about ready to roll ....

$8500 for the 645Z would have to be the cheapest I've seen it here too. I would if I could.

Don't forget to do the firmware update. The camera ships with V1.00 but V1.10 is available.
