Australia: k70 + Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC Lens & Acc. Bundle
Posted By: Aussie Matt, 11-22-2020, 02:59 AM

Dunno if this will interest anyone, but TVSN just had this on:


TVSN - Pentax K-70 DSLR w/ Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC Lens & Acc. Bundle

$999: Probably doesn't make sense if you've already got good glass, but as a kickstart kit I thought that was pretty reasonable.

Even if this is a bargain isn't it better to be dealing with a photography specialist rather than what might be a drop shipping discounter? I've never had experience with these people so I don't know how reliable they are. Product review has a few negative reports.

I think the best plan is to stick with CRK but ask for the current 15% discount. It'll make the wait hurt less.

Wow, you're right. Was unaware of that. Wife works with a couple of girls that use them heavily.

That's what smart people think... on the other hand why is amazon so big.

I think I seen camerahouse price match so that could be worth a try too.

It's often Clem Kennedy on TVSN spruiking the deals so there must be some sort of relationship between TVSN and CR Kennedy

This will be legit, I'd have no problems ordering it. CR Kennedy are the importers of both Pentax and Sigma in this country.

I've got that lens, and it's great. The K-70 is obviously such a capable camera some would question whether they need a KP.

That'd be why the sigma and pentax/australia sites are on the same template.

I'd never seen them on there before... and I had no idea who he was LOL.
