Pentax K-S1 and K-50 (Australia)
Posted By: PJ1, 11-12-2014, 03:30 PM

Did I miss something? The Pentax Shop (Australia) ( now has the following pricing:

K-S1 body only $649, with 18-55 $699, with twin kit $799

K-50 body only $649, with 18-55 $689, with twin kit $849

So both bodies cost the same, but the 18-55 cost $10 more if you buy the K-S1, but the twin kit costs $50 more on the K-50. Maybe they are still sorting things out. But I suspect this means that the K-S1 has been positioned for Christmas sales and a K-50 adjustment is in the pipeline.

All I can say is order directly online as I rang our state dealer and they quoted the flucard at $140 managed to get them back to their online price of $99.00 then were going to charge me $10 postage when online States all orders in Australia free postage. Seems the main dealers aren't keeping their state branches informed some really bizarre things with pentax Australia atm they are making it hard for their on sellers.

Four days later at the Pentax Shop - the K-S1 body is back up to $699 (+$50 and now $50 more than the K-50), the K-S1 and 18-55 is up to $749 (+$50 and now $60 more than the same K-50 bundle), and the K-S1 twin kit is $849 (+$50 and now the same as the K-50 twin kit).

Makes (slightly) more sense. Maybe some had the wrong piece of paper (Christmas pricing?) and we are yet to see what is in the future for the K-50. Object lesson: Don't write your pricing on the back of a beer coaster at the end of a long lunch.
