Ozzies - before you buy from the USA, contact CRK through the Pentax Australia site with the link to the US deal you are considering - they may match the price, and you'll get an Australian warranty. If they don't match the price, you could always order from the States.
I just got an email from CRK and they are offering 15% of the entire web store. But it ends tonight Nov 28 at midnight.

I took the opportunity to get an O-GPS1 GPS Module. 15% discount and free shipping.

It's a holiday so it doesn't surprise me that no one is there to confirm it and finish the processing. In the past, during holidays, it has take up to 5 days (Thursday to Monday) to get a confirmation. Pentax Online Store is definitely NOT B&H or Adorama. But that price is terrific, hope you all enjoy your new lenses.
Good to know about the potential wait time, thanks!

I bought the DA 55-300 WR, I could not pass on the price. You can barely buy the DAL version for that price new. I bought it to go with my K3 I have coming today. I payed with Paypal and received an email confirmation the same day from the Pentax Web Store. Hopefully it will not take too long to arrive. I know this lens has not received the greatest reviews, but now with this lens and the K3 I will not have keep a plastic bag over my camera and lens while shooting wildlife in not so favorable weather. I can not wait to try this on my new K3. .

Thanks for the heads up. Was able to save some money on my daughter's Christmas gift, a white k50 and the first digital Pentax SLR in the family!

Another 31mm victim here. I tried to get B&H to match. No dice. It's below their cost. And I'm now $773.42 poorer.

55-300WR out of stock Good for my wallet right now but I'm sure I will end up spending more for it later.

But you are $50 richer than I am after I bought a pristine used one at what I thought was a good price a few weeks ago.

Now if thats indeed true,the webstore **might** undo all the orders and claim a pricing error. Would be sad if it ever happened

It will be nice using it with my film PZ-1. I question how good this lens is gonna render on the eventual Pentax full frame. I say this because it was originally designed for film.

Much thanks for the heads-up on this deal. I was able to buy a K-50 body (white) with an HD DA 55-300 WR (which I have a need for, as opposed to a flash or an 18-55 zoom) for less than $560 shipped!
