"Halloween Sale" Digital Warehouse International (DWI)
For $AU 199 Pentax SMC DA L 55-300mm f4-5.8 ED Lenses Digital World International
For $AU 559 Pentax SMC D-FA 100 mm f/2.8 Macro WR Lenses Digital World International
For $AU 339 Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4 Lenses Digital World International

DWI manages warrantees themselves, repairs done in Australia. I've not bought lenses from them, nor have I needed to test their warrantee arrangements.

It is an excellent deal (bhphoto has it for $846.95).
Two comments though :
- it has Australian sellers warranty not Pentax Australia. Not a real issue but good to know beforehand.
- most likely you will get very similar results for your macro shots with either Pentax DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 ED OR Pentax DA* 50-135mm f/2.8 ED. So if you have one of those or both (like me ) there is no much point spending money on this one UNLESS you're really serious about macro photography (like shooting small insects, etc).
I like shooting macro but most of the time it is flowers, so I do not need lots of magnification.
but once again if you're really serious about macro photography, grab this one.
At least I would.

Very good price as well. The lens is not as well built as a new HD Pentax-DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED WR but as it is almost identical optically (OR very close at least) for half price, it is an excellent deal, esp. if you're not gonna use too often.
The only thing you will definitely need for it is a hood. grab a rubber screw in one for ~$10, it will do the job. Hood is essential to reduce flare.
