Just FYI, my 18-135 WR arrived today via Fedex from pentaxwebstore.sg. Packaged reasonably well, with literally miles of adhesive tape around it, and adequately protected against shock and box damage. Came with a useful sticker on it too: "FRAGILE - Please do not throw".

Even though it is an unbox item, lens is pristine and came with an operating manual, serial number card and a warranty card from Emjay that offers 6 months international warranty or 12 months local (presumably Singapore) warranty. The warranty card needs to be sent back to Emjay in SG 'within 14 days from the date of purchase' but for international orders this seems somewhat unreasonable. I trust they will be flexible about that timeframe.

The lens itself is very nice. Focus is so quiet! No optical or focus problems that I can detect.

Congratulations!

6 months international warranty included? that's pretty cool!
Does it mean we don't have to send it back to Singapore in rare case the lens doen't work properly within 6 month?
(get 6 months warranty in buyer's country?)

btw, which area are you located? did you get the extra bill from the FedEx driver, such as the brokerage fee and duty fee, etc?

Fedex just called me. I had to send them the FCC 740 form. No big deal but PITA.

I think the item will need to be sent back to SG for the warranty to work. I doubt my local Pentax distributor will honor it.

I'm located in Australia, and no there was no additional Fedex bill or brokerage fee. There never is here for items valued under AUD$1000, at least in my experience.

Oh, I was thinking you ordered a K-30. Congrats on the lens and I'm glad you got it without FedEx giving you any troubles!

loco,
Thanks for the commentary. Maybe best to just hang in there. They are supposed to be a reputable dealer.

Thanks to frank!

After seeing this deal, I kinda thought about it for a few days, then decided "what the heck" and ordered a K-30 on July 26. About 1PM CDT I received an email saying my order was "confirmed". Haven't heard anything since.

Kinda bummed after seeing loco's report of "out of stock" on the K-30s. 7-10 days - damn - I'm hoping to take it on a big trip that I leave on the 11th for. Fingers (and everything else!!) crossed!!

Good luck. Don't forget the citations here that helped get the camera through FedEx without Customs duty or Processing Fees.
