K-70 deals popping up now.

I'm starting to see deals pop up on the K-70....
I can get the body and18-135 WR for pretty much 1000.00 plus tx.
I'm think this is a pretty good deal. Any comments or opinions?
Shooting a K-50 right now.

Yes, in the States. Not here in Canada.
Exchange rate makes that 1014.00 here in this country. BUMMER!

In Germany best price is 968 €. That equals 1176,17 US$, even more than in Canada.

Pension is by far not as good as it once was. For healhcare, yes the basic treatments are fully covered, more specific treatments especially in dentistry have to be payed separately. Not sure if this is related to the price for products.

Nothing comes free....FREE healthcare comes at the cost of high taxes! Nuff said.

Health care is not financed by taxes, everyone has to pay a certain amount for health insurance, depending on the level of income. So "free" healthcare isn't free in reality.
But enough of that, have a nice day.

That's probably as good as a deal there is out there on the combo.

Check out Camera Canada on Amazon.ca $1199.99 and you will get the 2 year warranty as it is a Canadian store.

Wasn't that including tax (16 percent)? If so, it's a rather similar amount. And btw., the pension system is subsidized by taxes.
