If I wanted a K-S1 I'd only buy from CRK.

The Pentax Shop has the body and 18-55 for $829 and body only for $789. Leederville Cameras (one of the authorised AU distributors) has the body and 18-55 for $795. The Australian warranty is probably worth the bit extra.

Well worth the little bit extra to have the oz warranty

You are probably wrong. Groupon have done locally sourced Pentax deals before.

What gives this particular deal away as a CRK OK deal is that CRK are not only the local Pentax distributor, they also locally distribute:

- Sandisk (the deal includes a Sandisk card)
- Sigma (the lens included in the deal)
- Vanguard (the camera bag included in the deal).

So they are in a great position to offer such bundles to resellers.
