ADD the GST!.....

I think aussie ebay is $2729 from DCexpert(the importer) and the lens is A$700 delivered from the US

2 year local warranty from DC as well

Are you being sarcastic? If you buy if from any major camera retailers in US (B&H, Adorama and Amazing ), K-1 with 28-105 costs $2296. So, I am wondering why this is a great price?


retail in OZ is $2799

This is just a bundle, doesn't seem to have any discount other than the free generic accessories.

Oh, so the lens and OEM battery grip inclusions don't make this a good deal? You can't get a K1 (body only) in Australia for that price.


They have adjusted the price since my original post. Sneaky - no longer a good deal. When I posted the price was $2445.95 AUD (USD $1770 or thereabouts). I should have jumped on it!!!!
