K-30 Deal in Australia
Posted By: Dean Bradshaw, 05-07-2014, 06:41 PM

There is another thread for a good price on the K-3 in Australia from DigiDirect.
They also have a pretty good rate on The K-30 with the Sigma 17-70, at $629 plus shipping.
The K-50 prices are good at the moment too, but for some people the lens might make this package a better option...

Pentax K30 including Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4.5 DC Macro Lens | DigiDIRECT Australia

On until Sunday from the looks.
Cheers
Dean

and do you guys with the K50/30/500 miss the top LCD screen?

I think I would cry if someone took it out of my K10..

But maybe I'm just being a touch dramatic?

I might put some tape over the top of it and see how much I miss it :P

Hi Steve,

As far as I understand it. Sigma does not make WR lenses.
I thought I read that on one of Adam's posts.

Regards,

Brian

The Sigma alone sells in the $500 USD (on amazon) - equiv to $535 AUS.
If one wants the Sigma lens and needs a body - the K-30 will cost an additional $100 AUS on top of the price of the lens.

Too bad they don't ship to US

I thought I would when I went from K20D to K-30, but I don't miss it at all.

Thanks Brian, it was actually a rhetorical question as I'm not sure why DD would offer a WR body with a non-WR lens. Illogical really.

There have been a lot of combo offers with WR camera body and non WR lens. Most non-experts do not care much is the lens is WR and can be easily fooled....

The deals at DigiDirect are much wider than just the K30+lens. Everything seems to be about 10% off till Sunday. Seems you can even order the Sigma 18-35 for Pentax at 10% off, despite it not being in stock yet.

I wish you had not posted that. I just took a look and I think it is going to cost me money!
