Hi Guys


I'm an old Pentax K10d shooter and I'm thinking of buying a new SLR - an upgrade to the Pentax K3 as I've got some nice Pentax fit lenses. Just wondering if there are any recommendations on where to buy a K3 or if you're aware of any offers on at the moment?


Cheers

Hi Rob,

Welcome to the Pentax thread. Current price for the Black K3 is around $13xx. Price could go down in December but there is no new replacement for it as yet. If you are keen to get, it is a good price. The gun metal colour is about $17xx currently.

OK not commission but you have to add another US$60+ for shipping........works out to S$1280 shipped with 7% GST . :)

Then again if you have a friend visiting USA it is a different story altogether ......... somebody who doesn't charge you commission for the favour is a indeed your friend....... buy him lunch if you must ...................

Hi Rob,

Have you bought the K3? If not, come to our monthly outing and have a feel of the camera and the legacy lenses that match it.

i think when buying from overseas, we have to look at the exchange rate as well..dun forget that the final exchange rate charged by the credit card or paypal is always higher than what we see so we cannot just look at the online exchange rate today and assume that is the rate bank will charge us

From Adorama, K-3 should be around ($897 + $60) x 1.31 x 1.07 = $1340.

After all the calculations, I would vote, support overseas...

Whilst it is true the price difference is not significant, somehow I think we should teach our local distros a thing or 2 about greed..
