why would they be 'clearing out' the FA 50 1.4? Does this mean they are not carrying it anymore or that Pentax is not going to make them anymore? Or is it simply one of those inventory reduction things...

Just curious.

I would guess that the 50mm f1.4 isn't a big seller for them and they are just clearing them out. They are also clearing out the FA J 18-35mm f4-5.6 for $99 but I didn't think that anyone would be interested in that one.

For further information about the availability of the 50mm you could just contact Pentax...

All that said, it was just me saying that they are clearing them out, who knows, maybe they just want to sell them really cheap?! But seriously, it was on a "Buy it Now" price, which usually means they won't be carrying that item again.
I also noticed that London Drugs also don't have that much Pentax Cameras and Lenses as well. that is however in the Downtown Vancouver branch.

Dear everyone -

For 250, I don't think you will ever find a finer autofocus 50mm prime.

Buy this! They are cheaper then you commonly see used 50 1.4s go for!

Love, paperbag.
