    You can add 10% to the for GST so your cost will be $1,165 + $165 + $45 postage = $1,375 and you may have limited local warranty since it is imported. Their website has full details but you need to click the links and read the fine print.

    Just had a look around on google, and from what I can gathe it seems they are simply an importer from HK. Some believe that they are not importing for trade 'legally' in dealing with customs, but I havn't seen anyone report they were ripped off in any way. Just cheap grey imports from HK I guess.

    If it's shipped in from overseas, you may find yourself with a customs GST bill, and possibly brokerage fees on top of that. Or you may be lucky - let's hope!

    Congrats! No GST, despite being over the $1000 threshold?

    I'm sure you can find somewhere on the web to download the instructons from.
    In some ways, this is very handy, because if you have a smart phone, you can copy and paste the instructions into your phone so you have it for reference while you are out taking photos.

    Many of the grey import cameras only come with Chinese or Japanese instructions, and this is why they don't send them to you.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Congrats on the new toy. I'm envious.

    Hope all goes well.

    The Manual is downloadable from the Pentax website.
