...I have read that the charge you a mandatory insurance fee before they ship to you which ranges from 4-10% of the product price.Could be pricey!

Avoid at all costs. I've seen and dealt with operations like this in the past. Chances are good you will end up with a gray market product. Not worth the risk.

I bought my K-7 at amazon.com. Their price went up a bit, but still have a good deal.
