With DirtCheap, unless you are able to buy in-store and can actually handle what you are about to buy, always confirm via email that they actually have stock. And if you do decide to buy online, ask them not to charge your CC until the item is actually shipped ...

I just had a look at their website and their prices are not competitive with CR Kennedy. For example, the 18-135 is $200 cheaper online from CRK

Just run any of their prices through shopbot.com.au and it's pretty much the same story.

Pls do. I resolved several years ago never to do business with them again. Maybe they have changed.

Thanks for the heads up the lens won't be in till the end of the month rang them and told them to cancel my order had to email to confirm so will see how long it takes for the refund thru PayPal. Will order thru Kennedy when the refund comes in. I don't know why I didn't check there first. Will give it to them they like to try and sell you something else lol.

Yeh, since they started their online shop I always buy PENTAX through CRK and mostly deal with Corey who gives excellent personal customer service.
Prior to CRK, I bought my *istDS and then the K-7 from DCW.

Thanks for letting us know but I could not find any good deals on their Web site.

PS I reckon I was wrong. They have some reasonably good deals, e.g.
Pentax SMC DA* 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL IF SDM Lens for $963.00

Can't thank you enough I contacted Pentax (CRK) after I cancelled my order with DC and got a lovely lady called Michelle that tracked down a 55-300 DA WR for me which just arrived if you hadn't of let me know I would still be waiting. Her service was outstanding I will in future order any new pentax lenses through them.
Thank you so much again.
