That's reading as about $2,200 Australian dollars (with 10% GST added). Not bad.

Anyone who wants to complain about Pentax lenses should first be made to certify they have used this lens with a K-1. It is outstanding.

So Adam, Does this piece of glass qualify for forum supporter status if we buy it through the B&H or Adorama links? I think its as much as my K-1 body was
Edit: Check Amazon and B&H pricing. B&H is the lowest currently so they may be fluctuating.

Everything does, so yes. For select cameras, like the K-1, you can also get 1-year upgrades.

My eyes are hurting. I'm keeping my cool but just barely... If the Canadian dollar was stronger, maybe...
