aussie k-30 deal
Posted By: pixelvandal, 06-23-2013, 11:52 PM

A decent deal I thought at TEDs camera house, can get the k30 and sigma 17-70 2.8-4.5 for636, apply the coupon code '5OFFCART' to get 5 percent off and free shipping aus wide. Just ordered one, came to $604AU
Not bad considering they sell body for 599 and the kit 18-55 version for way more

I've just bought this deal this week and I'm very happy with it, especially as I was able to get the red K30 which is normally more expensive than the black one. Teds are one of the only outlets in Australia that sell the red version. Generally the market here is averse to the coloured cameras. I'd be very interested in what others think of the Sigma 17-70 as I haven't road tested it yet.

This looks like a very nice deal! How much would I be able to make if I sold off the lens? As most likely I would only keep the camera body...

Great deal, thanks. Just purchased one for a second body for my upcoming trip/safari to Kruger National Park. This will work out even cheaper with TRS tax refund.

yep. That seems better. Although I don't mind paying extra to have a brick and mortar store to go back to if something goes wrong, and I can pick it up directly from them as there is one local to me. But good spotting!

They look like a grey store to me, correct me if I'm wrong. Ted's are Australian stock and honour Australian warranties.

Actually, I think Snappit is a branch of Teds. They have an Australian call centre, and an ABN.
I remember when I bought my Q from Snappit, it has the same pictures, same price and same mobile website as Teds. (Different logos and colour scheme obviously)

Also, from a whirlpool search, someone traced Snappit to be owned by Teds

Snappit advertise strongly that they are not grey market, but an Australian company, so they may well be part of Teds.

And yes their deal is more price competitive... if you want black. I was happy to pay a little more for the red package.
