where do you see that? I don't see any mention at https://www.pentax.com.au/shop which is what I assume you are meaning?

Where did you see that? I've looked at the site, and can see nothing.

Subscribe to their email list and you should be notified. If you can PM me your email address I could forward the message. I can't imagine that CRK would mind me helping their sales!

I'm keenly watching what B&H will do to the price of the DA*60-250, but 10% off an already decent price here is a good deal.

Don't forget GST on imported items over $1K and the excessive cost of international freight, and grey market items won't get warranty here.

Yeah I realize that, but last year the B&H price was under $1k, I think in the low 900s from memory, probably low enough to still sneak under the $1k cut off.

The CK price is now $1,214. Local warrant may be worth the difference, but let's see what B&H do.

Just received an email this morning for some savings on the Pentax Australia Webstore.

Very tempted by the SMC 70/2.4 limited at this price...

Cheers

Yeh, but now that all the Limited lenses have been upgraded to HD, the DA* range can't be far behind. That could mean even greater savings on the current models soon.

Add credit card fees on foreign exchange transactions, too.

The Australian deals are really very good at the moment. The Black Friday deals will have to be very compelling indeed to tempt me to buy from the USA.

I'm sure that's the CRK plan.

It looks like the Abbott government is about to remove the $1000 GST exemption for web purchases from overseas, so B&H etc may be much less attractive for Aussies soon. I bet the local prices will then go up proportionately ... since they can.
