The webstore must be getting *smashed*, its loading horribly slow.

Wow. EXCELLENT deal, and nice to see it showing up on your side of the pond.

As a former OZ resident and current-K-01 owner, I encourage you to go for it. The K-01 may be the "ugly duckling" of the Pentax lineup, but the features to price ratio can't be beat. I certainly have had a lot of fun shooting with it!

M.u.s.t. r.e.s.i.s.t....

I have a multitude of Pentax cameras, including the Q. Why should I get the K-01 (apart from taking all my lenses without an adapter)?

What, you haven't got a K-01 yet? Its a life changing camera, I bought one for kicks, and its ended up booting out my NEX and all the lenses I got for the NEX, 5 of them!

I see you have some MF lenses listed in your profile, The K-01 is more fun than the K-5 with MF lenses.

Pfftt! Two tanks? That's less than one tank on my car (155 litres of PULP at $1.48/litre).

How can I sneak it into the house? I just bought the K-5 and DA 18-55WR last week from Kennedy's for $715 (new) - and snuck that into the house.

Anyone else have any luck?
