Wow they're on a roll. It's like every month there's special offers and are they showing the whole limited lineup there? I want to go to Melbourne suddenly but I have work.

Anyone from PentaxForums going to be there? We need a spy or two there to collect some Pentax/Ricoh secrets.

I have tried. Did not work, otherwise it would pull a trigger on a K-5II body.

Which didn't work - the SPRING13 or the DIGITALSHOW discount code?

Try all caps, it might be case sensitive.

Also, try it at the end. That's where it worked for me last week.

My LBA kicked in and I used the code DIGITALSHOW to get a long lusted for 43 ltd. I can confirm that this code works.

I couldn't get anything out of them today. They would only say that Ricoh is playing things close to the chest but things were looking promising. They do like their new office in Port Melbourne. Nobody new anything about their GPS and they couldn't connect the 300 to the Q10 as they didn't have the adapter. Nice to see the pentax stand was busy all day. They had the red ringed lenses but I didn't try them out as I have have all the Ltds and Fa's I need. They did have the Q7 which I had a play with.

Well worth the visit. Could have had a lot more to assist with using SLR for video. Only had really expensive junk.

I just made an order and got the discount. It took a lot of mucking about. You need to press a button called Apply discount to order (or something like that)

I have 2 crap underwater cameras. I tested the WG3 and it seems to be able focus close up when partially zoomed. Anyway we will see if third time lucky
(Canon G10 with underwater housing difficult to get a good shot and now the camera has a scratched lens because canon won't fix their problems model after model and my panasonic what ever it is the GPS is so bad one has murderous intentions, the photos are not brilliant and the shite fogs up in cold water - great when you have traveled 3000k to find it fogs up with no warning. - would have been prepared if I new)

Yeah you're right. They made the spring code expire, so only one will work at a time.
Might have to buy my stuff through B&H in the end.. The 15mm HD is about $100 cheaper form the US

did you try calling them first if the price for the 15mm is for real I mean it couldn't be that far from the US pricing. I'm still holding out until I see any real world improvement or a review from this forum.

I dropped them an email and they sent me this discount code saying this is the best it'll get and told me to take advantage of the offer.
It is pretty far off from the US pricing...

Also maybe worth mentioning, I went into stores to look for the older 15mm SMC (hoping it would be cheaper) but all the stores called up their rep at CR and all came back saying that they don't stock the old one anymore. And the new HD ones which are on pre-orderable, will arrive from Japan in approx 6 weeks.

Well even considering the excessively expensive shipping in B&H I think Australian price for the 15 is way over my budget.

On a side note, it's coming from Japan? Meaning they manufactured the new versions from Japan? Or they just boxed it there?
