Welcome ren51ren,

I'm ex-Sydney, now in the New England area.

Where did you buy your K5 from?

Regards, Gary

Welcome ren51ren. This is a great place to waste loads of time.
It's a sign of the times when you're asked where you got your new Pentax camera from, and the answer is always 'off the 'net'. Can't buy 'em in Newcastle either.

But I saw a real one in 3-D in a shop in Adelaide! K-30, and others on the shelpf I did not ask about.

And I have seen them in a knd of electronics department store in Tainan, Taiwan, called A-1, next to the Apple shop. I bought other odds and ends there, like SD cards, batteries and camera bag. It is just near the train station, past all the fashion shops for teenage girls.

Would you believe, I bought mine at a bricks and mortar place (actually reinforced concrete.)
