    Don't worry so much.

    1. DA Lenses should still be usable on a FF camera. Its just cropped.
    2. DA lenses are still good lenses regardless
    3. Quite a few of the DA lenses cover the 36x24mm image circle (eg. DA40; 35; 50)
    4. Those that don't cover full FF image circle, still cover a bit over APS-C, so imagine using the DA70 at about 1.3 or 1.2 crop to yank out that bit more DOF control. (provided the camera has an option not to auto-crop ); The extreme may not be that good, but for many shots, they are not that important.



    My interest is perked by Benjamin Karnek's comments that he 'smells' a Pentax APS-C with proprietary sensor algo that will out resolve anything current.
    If it really happens, then it will be a hard choice between APS-C and FF for me.
    (my fear is that I end up with both )

    I guess elsewhere includes only North America and South East Asia. ;-) Anyway, I wasn't talking about Pentax only.

    Take note of :
    1. Shipping cost
    2. GST
    3. Warranty

    I guess that we can always find a better deal overseas for many items. Google the price of a equivalent TV model in the USA vs what we pay locally, We pay much more locally. Thus, if you feel that the cost savings generated vs the inherent risks buying overseas is worth it. Then you should go ahead. Otherwise it will be better to buy locally.

    That's why i said only warranty is the concern. But is it a big deal? Check it out the MarketPlace in this forum.
    For normal consumer like me, the biggest concern always the lower price. Only the distributor or Vendor wanna to have higher selling price.
    So sad for Pendax in SG..

    All Pentax cameras I was interested so far had a worldwide warranty anyway like Olympus. I thought that hasn't changed.

    Actually, I think the K-30 is much nicer. Played with it in Japan, I love the fast live-view.
