This is a link to an Australia website for a company called DWI. They do direct imports ("Grey Market") of equipment but have a good reputation and will provide international warranties using Mack.

The have both the A33 and A55 listed.



Thanks for the suggestion Darren. I'm not sure how confident I am spending over $1000 online, but hearing that the store has a good reputation makes me feel a bit better I've emailed them enquiring about import tax & will see what that adds to the price. (Since I presume they're shipping from Hong Kong?)

By the way, I emailed Sony Australia to pester them a little. This was their reply:

Dear Pauline,

Thank you for your enquiry.

The SLT-A55 and SLT-A33 will be released in Australia this month, a release date has not been made available yet.

So hopefully I'll see it in stores here soon. I'd really like to have a play with it and make sure I'm happy with its size & weight before I purchase it. Thanks everyone for your help
