B&H is one of the best merchants I have dealt with online! If they say it is in stock, it is in stock. If they say it can be ordered and arrive soon, it will! They are, IMHO, trustworthy and competent.
Thank you. This is very gratifying.
Regarding the post which began this thread, the "list" price for the SMC-DA 50-135mm f/2.8 ED SDM lens is 999.95. The selling price is somewhat lower.

I ordered my copy from B&H on the Web page on Sunday night and received the shipping confirmation on Monday morning. So it does appear to be in stock. I'm sure that it is the DA* lens (since there has never been any other Pentax 50-135mm f2.8 ED SDM lens), but I will have it in hand in 4 days to make sure.

I have always had a positive experience in dealing with B&H so I can recommend then without hesitation. I haven't had any defective merchandise from them, but I have had a return for something where I changed my mind and I had no problem at all in getting an RMA and getting the credit after the return.

ehhm..?! how much lower is the selling price?! It says here 999.95, so I guess whoever mentioned 799.00 got a very good deal somehow...

confused

It was 799 for a few days. I was going to order mine tonight, but I guess I can wait now for the extra 200..

Holy price inflation! I got mine for $799.00 from B&H on Saturday night! Hopefully that price will return. the lens Pentax should discount is the DA *16-50! For a while the 50-135 was selling for less than the 16-50.

Whew! That was close. I ordered on Monday morning when I saw it was in stock.
Somewhat confused when I didn't get a ship confirmation Monday evening but this
afternoon it came though and still at the lower price.

I have it on Friday. Now I'm just

waiting

congratulations on your good timing. I think you will enjoy this lens; my copy is very good so far.

I think the $799 might have either been an error or a marketing gimmick in an attempt to push as many 50-135's out there as possible initially to spur some interest, spark sales and get the reviews pouring out. Kinda sucks that the price went back up to $999.99, I may just have to make a trip down to B&H seeing as I checked with a retailer I deal with in Toronto and they quoted me close to $1300 CDN for the 50-135 (ouch!).

Well, right now I'm kicking myself. I posted this thread. I thought it was the normal price. I was gonna wait until this weekend to make my order but now I'll have to wait. I cant justify the added $200.00
Actually, I couldnt justify the cost of the lens period but now even more so.

Well Henry, It seems that you may work at B&H? Is the old price still available? or is the new price going to be the actual price?
