Enabler Alert: DA 55-300

Yesterday, I received my brand new DA 55-300 lens. (This is the lens with the metal mount and hood, not the DAL). I had ordered it from cameraland on eBay.

It was described as being brand new, with full Pentax warranty, and the seller has very good ratings, and claims to be an authorized Pentax dealer. But, since it was only $249.99 with free shipping, I was skeptical that I was going to get exactly what was described in the listing. (...if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is...)

GOOD NEWS! it was EXACTLY what they said it was! Anyhow, they have more of these (7 the last time I checked) at that same bargain price. Enjoy!

Normally, I don't only buy this sort of stuff from an "unknown", especially on eBay. I've gotten good prices and great service from B&H, Adormama and my local camera store, and I really prefer to patronize these merchants. However, I've been considering buying this lens for a while, and this deal was just too tempting. I gambled, and it worked out well.
