I bought my lenses from and Keh is a highly reputed 2nd hand photographic equipment shop, and Adorama has a used/2nd hand section that is also reputed. Both sellers are based in the US, and my lenses were UPS-delivered to Oz. I can recommend strongly both.

Off course ebay is another alternative.

Hope that the experience will assist...

I know Tassie is quite small, but i've been finding used Pentax gear at Cash Converters. I'm assuming you have this chain store down there?

I used to maintain this thread on Aussie suppliers - but lost the energy to keep it updated......

The link to PhotoCo in Adelaide still works with their weekly list of used gear. Some of the gear moves very fast though....

These days I find with the Aussie Dollar being healthy, Adorama and B&H are good sources of new equipment. You can pick up lenses and other gear at around 30-50% lower than locally and NEW - even with shipping.

The forum marketplace is also a very good source of used equipment - probably as good as you'll get other than fleaBay The benefit of the marketplace IMHO is that the people here are dedicated Pentaxians and there is a often a seller/buyer rating you can view

Good luck with your hunting.

As MoiVous has said, keep an eye out on this Group, as the theory is that all Aussie purchases are shared here. Also we've done some research on Aussie sellers...again MoiVous played a huge roll here.
