Code does not work if you add a lens to the bundle through the bundle and save link.

I'm not seeing the normal Canadian shipping option with taxes and border fees collected by Adorama on this bundle - only regular UPS Expedited shipping for $45 US dollars (!) with the likelihood of additional customs brokerage fees upon arrival... Makes easier to resist I guess.

Any speculation as to why the price drops again? Full frame? Mark II?

Unfortunately even at this price it still equates to over AUD$1000 delivered to Australia. It's still not worth it for me.

I was waiting for a black friday deal, but at this price, I may have to go ahead and buy this. If it's while supplies last and they are trying to clear everything out, I may end up without one if I wait.
Last year I learned that best deals go before black friday.

Rob, the GST only applies if the value of the goods themselves exceeds AUD 1,000 (Customs publish the applicable exchange rate daily Exchange rates). However, once you exceed the AUD 1,000 threshold GST is levied on the total cost including shipping.

I guess it comes down to how much value you place on the grip versus a local warranty.

Interesting. I am seeing a lot of vendors with just awesome deals this past week - I think you are correct. It seems the retailers are trying to get your dollars spent with them before the actual "Black Friday".

For those of us who purchased this kit from B&H within the last 30 days, they will match it. I called them today and was told they would issue a credit for $100.

Thanks Mike, I assumed that the GST would apply to the total value of the order. At today's exchange rate the price excluding shipping equates to AUD$927 which is below the threshold. Personally I'm not really keen about the grip, so taking the cost of shipping into account, the AUD$1100 including shipping from CRK with an Australian warranty is a more comfortable choice for me. However, others who want the grip should take advantage of the offer before the AUD slips further.

Yep, last year I could not wait for bf, and bought the camera before, but I've been watching sales very closely to see if I lost money. I did not A price game is running right now: up and sale, then up again and sale... Hope I can catch good price for DA 50mm f1.8 for K-5iis. Watching...

According to CNET, this price is until November 26 or when supply runs out, whichever is first.
