Most of the lenses have a similar base price to the pentax australia store so a very good deal. The Da*50-135 is a particularly good deal.
The 16-50 and 560mm are still way cheaper at the pentax aus store though!

The CR Kennedy reseller on eBay called dcxpert has had the 50-135 for months listed at $1099. He's a genuine reseller and when you get your item it comes directly from CR Kennedy. The Digidirect 60-250 is a nice price though if it isn't grey market.

Wasn't DigiDirect the co-sponsor of the K-3 launch in Sydney? Or have I mised them up with someone else?

Digidirect are decent Pentax/Sigma/ everything local warranty dealers - I've bought a few lenses from them over the years. They have some good deals this weekend. Tempting.

They also have the battery grip for the K3 for $206, which is cheaper than I can even find it overseas on Adorama or BHVideo. If only I had money leftover from buying the K3...

Thanks for putting me on to DigiDrect. I was able to get CRK to match their price via a local store today for a Sigma 120-300 zoom. I sold my Nikon 300mm and TC over the last two days and that got me 1/2 way.

They haven't got the 1.4 TC online either, but when I went in to the store we agreed on a price 10% less than the online CR Kennedy price. I will pick it up as soon as they have got it in.

Good to know that they can be flexible. I will defer buying the 1.4 TC till I have a long lens worthy of it (next purchase?). For the time being, I ordered the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 in the digiDirect EOFY sale; I always said I would someday buy ONE fast lens, and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity. Generally I prefer compact over fast, but occasional low light or DOF requirements swayed me. Interested to see how long it takes for them to have it available for pickup.
