This is the first "Australian stock" K-5 (I have seen) Sub AUD $1000.

Yes this is the best price I've found. It was briefly 999 last month and then it went up to 1099 and now back down.

Note that the body only price is good but the body & lens prices are slightly higher than some others (well for today anyway).

Yeah, it always seems like that in australia. You have to shop around for the best price as no single place has the best on everything you want, or so it would seem.

It's probably so they lure people in with a low price and then push the sale of other stuff to the unsuspecting.

I bought a K-5 from Ted's last weekend for $920... You just have to go in and ask for the best price. Some of their competitors were happy to match that price too... All the more reason to believe that a new model replacing the K-5 is not too far away...
