Thanks guys for the advice. I am now the proud owner of a Kx 18-55, 55-300 kit purchased via electron world after getting some clarifications as suggested by this thread. All good, tracked via UPS from Malyasia, gave me a pause when it reported delivered in Auckland then turned up here next to Aoraki Mt Cook the following day. Sweet! And I can put it in my (admittedly large) pocket.

Next problem, having endured reminders about how we couldn't afford /didn't need this how to convince she who must be obeyed that the 15mm pancake would be good to buy next...

Hmm TM has Sigma 100-300 that I had been looking for, only thing is when searching back it seems to be one CWayatt bought and returned in Feb "with issues". TM seller mentioned it had been in to Sigma repair agents last month, whoever they are. Are these issues likely to have been fixed by this? Would CWayatt care to comment?

Thanks all for the welcome and advice.
Transit - does this mean going to Aus to purchase is better than PI and or on TM?

thank GB
I would be nervous with Kx in the weather too. It would be good to hear from anyone who has wet their Kx, so to speak, and how it stood up.

Are electron-world reliable?
I am thinking of buying a camera from them, understanding that they PI but just need to know if they will come through and if there are any traps.

Howdy all
I am a wannabe Kx or K7 user. Previous cameras include Minolta SRT 101, Canon new F1 (tank), Panasonic KZ7 and about to jump into DSLR.
I Like to travel, hike, ski, climb with camera, hence size and weight are factors. Also like to take landscape, street and sports type pictures eg ski-racing.
Originally considered Canikons for AF Speed but put off by bulk. I Really like the idea of Kx kit for travel and found a Sigma APO 100-300 f4 (non DG) which seems to have the fast AF (as per the Utube video) and IQ I want for sports but I could leave its1400g behind for travel.
Q 1. would the Sigma work well on the Kx considering the bulk difference?
Q2. Should I go the whole hog and get the K7 kit? In NZ there is equivalent of US $600 or more in price and I would rather spend that on more glass or travel unless:
a) the Kx really won't like the odd bit of damp
b) the AF speed is better on the K7

That is a lot for an intro I realise but I have spent a long time searching forums without finding definitive answers to these :confused:
