I just want the K10D and the kit lens.

I live in India.

I'm saying this because, i need one website where my friend would do a purchase and give a shipping address of a third party (who would be coming to India).

I usually get computer stuff from newegg.com

Please advice me on the fairly good websites where i could purchase this for a good price.

The adorama site is loading as i type.. as adviced by ishinoeven before ineeded to ask

Are there any accessories you would advice, which do not come as a part of the kit? Example, a lens filter, a battery grip and a extra battery?

Your inputs would be very helpful.

If you want to get a K10D and the kit lens, you can go to Buydig.com to get the body for $609 (before rebate) as Tom (Ennacac) mentioned above; then get the kit lens DA 18-55 at Adorama for $85. That way will save you $100 compares to buying body + kit lens altogether.

Besides, I would get the DA 50-200 to get longer reach (you'll find need it once had the camera), or if you don't mindbuying used lens, then the FA 80-320 is an inexpensive but excelent zoom lens. I attached a picture that was taken with that lens at 320mm, the picture is heavily cropped. Looke at it and judge the lens yourself.

I am also considering exchangeing the xti for the k10.

Has anyone ever heard of this company and this price, it sounds almost to good to pass up.

I was looking at the XTi, but it feels really cheap compaired to the K10D. I am thinking $1000.00 is an OK price for this one. I may just start bidding.

Thanks for the tips Ken.

Initially i was wondering about how to factor in the shipping cost from two to three different vendors.

But the buydig purchase has offered shipping for free.

I would need more time before i commit the amount for the purchase. So, i'll keep my eyes open.

The body only K10D for 604 USD is no more on the buydig site

Guess, thats another extra 100USD going down the drain after missing out on the above offer.

Hi NN,

The body only is still $609 at Buydig.com, but unfortunately the rebate is gone.
