Those of you that got the K20D from AMazon with the sling bag promotion did you get the proper bag? I got the Pentax Crossover bag, not the Nylon Sling.

I'm shopping for a K20D. What's the lowest price for a k20D in Australia?

Body Only $1225
with Sigma 18-50mm $1337
with Pentax 18-55mm $1339
with Sigma 18-50 +
70-300mm $1350
with Pentax 16-45mm $1595
with Sigma 17-70mm $1559
with Sigma 18-200mm $1559
with Sigma 24-60mm $1559

Since I'm in the US, I can't help you out with shopping in Australia, but perhaps I can lend you a hand on lens selection.

On the lenses, whether or not you get a lens with the K20 depends on what lenses you already have, seeing as you have a K10. I'll give you my favorite picks:

Wide to short tele zoom:
Sigma 17-70 or DA16-45, depending on how long you need to go at that range.

Definitely the DA18-250. I used to have the Tamron version of this lens and for what it is, it's an excellent lens.

Although it's not in yourr list, the DA55-300 is at the top of the heap of affordable telezooms. If you don't need the length, the DA50-200 is a good economical choice.

I'm seriously contemplating the Tamron 70-200 F/2.8 but only if the price is right (currently @ 965 )
