Yep, DWI sell grey market cameras. And since the body + shipping will be less than $1000, you're not going to get hit with GST+Customs charge either. If I didn't have 2x K5 myself, I'd probably be keen to get one.

Beware, grey means no warranty.
"Seller's Warranty" means nothing. Don't expect them to repair or refund or replace anytime soon if anything goes wrong

Well I figured the risk was worth $400 in savings over Australian storefront chains-- I just pulled the trigger and spent the savings on a Samyang 14mm and M 50/1.7 .
