AU$899 - sounds like a decent deal

Not bad but look at the second lens, it's an old design and not optimised for digital imaging. Still it might be fine, take a look at the reviews in here to see.

MOST importantly the actual seller isn't identified and the fine print doesn't say that you get Australian warranty. In fact it says 'You must pay all expenses of claiming the warranty unless otherwise agreed in writing with the merchant' which suggests you will need to ship the camera to Hong Kong or similar if it malfunctions.

Teds sell the K30 for $599, with the 18-55 lens only for $700 and with an 18-200 for $800 and you will get Australian warranty no arguments. I'd try them and other local stores and see if you can't get a 2 lens kit for a comparable price and have some peace of mind. You'd also support the local economy which can only be a good thing.
