Digidirect Australia - 10% off everything
Posted By: rawr, 09-18-2014, 04:41 PM

10% OFF EVERYTHING
4 days only - September 19-22 - while stocks last
DigiDIRECT Australia

Some good deals on Pentax (and non-Pentax gear). I've bought from them before. Credible local dealer.

It's a pity Pentax is the only brand recently that hasn't been offering '10-15% off' deals, or big cash-backs, of it's own like Canon/Nikon/Sony/Fuji have been doing recently. Combine some of these current manufacturer discounts with store discounts like those offered by Digidirect, and you can end up with significant savings on some items.

Good find. I got my K-3 with 18-135 from digidirect during their EOFY sale.

Always remember to double check prices on Pentax.com.au webstore, as they have free shipping Australia wide. So on many items, you may be better off going with them.
I also found pentax.com.au ship faster than digidirect, who seem to get inundated during these sales.

Good tip. But I would go like this:

1. shopbot.com.au just to get a range of local prices quickly
2. dxexpert on eBay
3. pentax.com.au
4. bhphotovideo.com just for a sanity check

Thanks for the heads-up! I might get that 100mm macro I've been thinking about. Shame they don't seem to stock the TC.

Indeed. No one seems to, except the Pentax web store.

Speaking of TC, I notice that Ted's has the Sigma 1.4 TC listed for $99 at the moment (online only). It seems to support AF too. That's a big difference between the Sigma and the Pentax 1.4 TC price.

DA 560 is $5999 on Pentax.com.au - a good price!

If only I had another $5900 I would get it.

That is a good price. A 'Mint' used version of the 560 is selling for AUD $4400 at Matsuiyastore on eBay ATM, but once you factor in the GST it comes close (ie only about $1000 less) to the local retail price. Minus local warranty, of course.

I'd be really surprised if the AF and optical performance of the Sigma was close to the Pentax!

When they have flashes in stock - they seem to have forgotten that Metz and Sigma flashes exist for Pentax.

He/they are Pentax Australia,effectively.

Would always buy from them on eBay instead of the Hong Kong grey market - full warranty for starters for a similar price. And I've been able to drive to Port Melbourne to do the pickup.
