    $1269 K5 IIs Body only
    $1269 K5 II 18-55WR Kit
    $1499 K5 II 18-135WR Kit

    This is a very viable local option. Although weekend making a visit down will be more efficient than calling.

    Most of us are for supporting local shops as long as price is reasonable. But I hear some distro will not be too pleased with retailers low selling price.

    No mention of the ongoing cash rebate vouchers (which would still mean enforced expenditure of $200 at retailers)... Price quoted to me was straight up final price (cash payment).

    thanks clarify, I would think it is good price.

    take amazon as benchmark, k5iis is around USD950+. With the 7% GST and the shipment charges, it is almost cheaper now to buy from local, not to forget there is also local warranty.

    i believe APD is working quite aggressive on mitigation the pricing (overseas and local). they just launch the latest rebate promotion for Q10, K30, K5ii/K5iis.

    Is there any idea that the price before debate is what price? If the price before cash debate this time is the price that Ken mention above then it so too now for K5-IIs!

    Yes! Depending on exchange rate,
    Anything above 78.0, it worth buying
    As the price is y$78,400 , plus GST+ s$60 shipping, end up about s$1135 delivered.

    Exchange now at 77.2.
    If local selling at S$1100, with local warranty, buy local easier!

    To clarify: the deal I found at TK Foto is final price (cash payment). I was quoted by other shops even after ongoing cash rebate still more expensive... I suppose they applied the rebate to the RRP.

    Anyway, in response to some PM, I am NOT a staff of TK Foto. Just sharing a good deal I found in our local shops. And hopefully more local retailers and APD will toe-in with globally reasonable pricing.

    Maybe soon prices will drop more. I have seen rumours online where Pentax may release something new in the coming weeks. They estimate first week of sep. I have no first hand info. just saw some stuff online.

    for those who are interested,

    We haven't seen the K50 yet, now new things coming out? Wonder how much that's gonna be true though.

    Anyway, a real upgrade from Pentax is long over due ...

    Its that time of the year already.
    For sure something is coming.
    Only thing is what.
    To me, the reduced price of 645D and K5IIs hints at them being replacement models...

    There have been rumours of the 645D replacement and a Full-Frame camera for quite some time. Whatever they release, it should be pretty interesting. With recent the price cut, the 645D costs <S$7800 in Japan, which is a pretty good deal.
