anyone else purchase a DA *300 from the pentax store and find they were on back-order - 2 weeks - which often means a lot more in my experience. Bit disappointing.
Oh, well. I don't have such indication yet, but if it's only two weeks, I can live with that. If it's more, I'll travel with the DA55-300 instead of the DA*300. I can live with that too!

The current Australian government is talking about reducing or eliminating the low end limit on imports attracting GST - even though it will cost a lot more to administer than it will raise!

OK, cool. Anyway, I may be crazy, but I just bought a DA*300 from CRK. At least I'm sure about the warranty!
Very true, effectively grey means no warranty, I'm rolling the dice I did order a 60-250 and k3 from crk so I'm still supporting local

Wow - wish I could contemplate buying the K3 and 60-250 as well! I'm the same with the camera body - really important to have warranty on that! Good on you.

I wanted a HD DA 40mm for my K-01 but I think I'm out of the race due to buying a Tamron 24-70 for my D800e. There's also an UAD2 plug-in I need to buy tomorrow b4 my discount coupon runs out so it looks like I miss out.

Seems camera paradise price on the da300 was a mistake. I ordered but just got a notification they'd sent through a full refund . I guess 850 delivered was never going to happen for this lens. The annoying thing is that the coupon 10off has expired in the meantime.
ahh bugger.

Which does cause a thinking person to question their motives. Gerry Harvey has been keeping pretty quiet of late...

Sorry to hear that. If it's truly an Australian company you could actually demand the product for the advertised price. By law they are required to provide the product at the advertised price. Of course you'd probably have to take them to the small claims tribunal...

Sorry to hear about the Camera Paradise thing. Even though the 10% has expired, email CRK and see if they are willing to help a Pentax user out with a deal. They have been known to be accommodating sometimes. Everyone seems to be doing deals of one sort or another at the moment.
