I've been trying to click the Add to cart for the FA 43 for the past 6 hours already...I can't do it. Already spent too much on the K-1...

Thanks for the heads up, Rawr. Hot on the heels of the Pentax Au 15% sale too.

DA 20-40 Ltd $929 -> $743. Hmmm

Pentax K1 AU $1879.20 with the coupon code. Pity I don't need another.

Both Canon and Nikon have been running discounts on their full-frame offerings, lately, so this puts a bit of pressure back on them, in the Australian market.

True. A K-1 at that price is awesome.

But recently some brands (Nikon and Sony in particular), have been offering major discounts on a regular cycle. You have even sometimes been able to stack discounts - eg buy factory refurbed camera (ie already discounted because refurbed), from a eBay seller while eBay is offering 20% discounts, then you can get a factory cash rebate on the purchase. Stiff competition for Pentax.

As a related comment, it's a pity that Pentax Australia doesn't seem to have any sellers of factory refurbished Pentax gear with full warranty that I can find, like you can find locally with Nikon and Sony.

I bet the others have more stock to move than Pentax, and with the stacked discounts they can't be making much, if any, money on those sales. The interesting thing I'm noticing on this current European trip is the very small proportion of Sony A7/A9 cameras around, so I can't help wondering if Nikon is trying to keep Sony at a distant third place, especially now the D850 is here and taking some of the shine off the A9.

Probably because we don't like to let go of such good gear lol
