Buying a pentax K-X

Hellow fellow Pentaxians.
I've decided to buy myself a Pentax K-X and the cheapest deal I've found is at SimplyElectronics ( Pentax Cameras - Pentax K-x (White) 18-55 Kit with SanDisk Ultra SDHC 8GB Card ) .

As I'm in Sweden, I cant buy from US/Canada or likely, due to the high tax and customs fees.. This company seems like they're shipping in EU (from the UK -> Sweden) without any extra fees.

I've read up on the company and it seems like some ppl have had problems, but most swedes I've read about are happy with it. All ppl complain about are slow shipping, but I wouldnt mind.

So I wonder if you fellas think it's a good deal?

I'll buy it with the kit-lens and the memorycard. Thanx in advance!

They have a bad reputation in the UK and all of their items are grey import. Pentax users mostly use SRS for their gear .. the white KX is only a little dearer plus you get bag and some batteries if you order today. You also get a European warranty that is worth having.
