I must be an impatient [email protected]^@^^! , I rang the Australian distributor for Pentax in Australia and guess what, no RRP for the DA*50-135 lens, and why is that.... we still haven't received our FIRST allocation. How long should I wait before I become one of those tight fisted low lifes that ignores the local suppliers and gets my daughter(now living in Japan ) to send me one.

Just interested in any comments.

Simon.

I took a punt and bought my Sigma 135-400 zoom from B&H as there did not seem to be any readily available in a Pentax mount in Oz.

It only took a few days and it arrived in Tasmania from New York.


Sigma have the same distributor in Oz as Pentax.

warranty was a concern, but it seemed th eonly way to get the lens was to import it myself.


At least you have the option of a pushbike.

The last postie that tried to use one to deliver to Tassie drowned trying to ride it through the heads on Port Phillip Bay.

Like they say the warranty may be an issue...But for my part I'd tell the daughter to send one...Just my opinion. Or get B&H to send one by freight if needed!!
