You can use the "spring10" voucher to get an extra 10% off for the rest of the month.

I can confirm it works for the HD Limited lenses.

these ones look like they might be nice and discreet, 28mm and 40mm (close to the DA15 and DA21)

They have 10 in stock, but only for AUS & NZ.

And you get both for the price.

I found this nifty little bag on eBay, it would be nice if the lens part was a bit shorter for the 40mm, but it looks perfect if you have an 18-55 attached.

These are not special prices but i assume are their everyday online prices now that the opening special is over.

https://www.crkennedy.com.au/pentax/index.php?q=catalog

A few examples of prices:

DA 15 LTD $649
FA 31 LTD $989
FA 43 LTD $584
FA 77 LTD $770

Very good prices for Australian Stock and local warranty support.

I am not sure if they ship overseas.

Im just waiting now for someone to create replacement rubber grips in different colours.

Thinly veiled price fixing, don't know about US but in Australia that's illegal. You can only suggest MSRP.

But good work for helping the little man.

Stumbled upon this, thought it would make a nice little travel lens, at a very nice price.

From a Camera Electronic in Perth, Western Australia.

This is not the usual 40mm it is the cheaper one that comes with the K-01.

iLion D-BG4 battery grips
Posted By sven84

I have a $70 eBay job, it has "weather sealing" but on inspection it does not appear to and it does feel cheap, the shutter release button does not have a real noticeable half press for focus feel to it, but it does do it, and the grip texture material is cheaply glued on so I can see that peeling off after a lot of use. But Overall it does the job fine and it was a heap cheaper.

I have noticed CR Kennedy the Pentax distributor is selling cheap gear on eBay with damaged packaging etc for quite cheap, they have a genuine D-BG4 for $250 on there at the moment, which I will probably get in the near future but the cheapo one is doing the job.

Also I noticed the one you linked has a lot of plastic pins which slot into the body, they one I got had a lot more metal parts and I think from my research this was the difference between a good copy and an average one. This is the one I purchased.

Hi, i just converted from a Sony a350 and dodgy second hand lenses, and what a hell of an improvement the Pentax K-5 is!

I have got some decent glass too:
Sigma 17-70 f2.8
Sigma 70-200 f.28
Also got the camera body for only $869 AUD(DWI)

So just be patient with me i might have some annoying questions :p

Cheers!

Hi, first post, but i just bought myself a K-5 and also this lens, and this is the cheapest place i could find it on the web.

And suprisingly it is genuine Australian stock with the 2 year warranty.
