Saw my first discount on the new DA 35mm/f2.4

Well, the sellers that have them are consistently at the MSRP of $219 but I just saw one on eBay for $209 with free shipping. Hope this is the start of something for the holidays

I've been waffling about ordering one myself. Prodigital has a pretty good reputation around here from what I recall.

Oh Honeyyyyyyy.....

They are reputable. Watch out though, my credit card charges a fee of like $20 or $30 or something because it was an international purchase. I argued and my bank reversed it, but they said that was the only time and they would not do it again. Also, I used my credit card through paypal. Just an FYI if you have not used them before. Good luck.

Thanks for the heads up, that would certainly spoil the savings. I use PP with cash in the system and haven't had them charge a fee for international purchases done that way.

That's grand but it's $21.95 to ship regular post to the US and it's $9.95 within Canada. The one I posted was shipping included. Even so, its good to see them being discounted.

It is at price of 1200RMB(about 180 dollars) left in Chinese market.

Cheaper than price in your area.
