Pentax K-5 and K-5 w. 18-135mm in Australia
Posted By: cpho, 01-08-2013, 01:55 AM

Hi everybody,

This deal is mosly targeted at the Australian clique of this forum

There's a Brisbane company called CameraPro selling off their K-5 stock at pretty nice prices here:
Search results for: 'K-5' | CameraPro Australia

I'm not sure if it's just my computer but I can't get them to "add to cart", but the way around this is to get a price match instores, say at CameraHouse, or Teds because CameraPro (theoretically, self proclaimed) have Australian Stock, so a price match should be honoured.
I'll be going into the city first thing monday to see if I can find somewhere that has it in stock in the first place

Thanks for your time,
Hope I could help.

Interesting, but it seems, NO Pentax lenses at all. 3rd party yes, but not Pentax. Or did I miss something.

$798 body only is a very good deal for an Australian stockist. Well worth it.
Bruce, I can see the K-5 + DA 18-135 for $1,149 on the site.

Yup, that's why my title I only mentioned the K-5 & the K-5 with the 18-135mm.

Well worth it.
The body itself is so-so. Good but not great. But if you get the 18-135mm kit with it, it is actually amazingly cheap. Even cheaper than the cheapest grey import.

I've emailed them, and they confirmed that it is genuine stock, backed by C.R.Kennedy's warranty.
Their tech crew are working on fixing the links.

Once they get it working, I'm buying the kit >=D

N.B. STOCKS ARE STRICTLY LIMITED. (as per the email they sent back to me)
