Anyone heard of this online retailer?

Pentax Lenses - PENTAX DA Star Lenses - Pentax K-x Lenses - Digital Camera Lenses

The lenses seem "to good to be true" cheap. Anyone have experience with this retailer? For example, hey have a 77mm 1.8 for $464.00.

I have never heard of them, but I can guarantee you that those prices are not legit. Listen to your gut.

Does someone have experience with this website or scam? - Yahoo! Answers

Looks like it's not a good option. And hey, they have 1 unit of every lens!

If it were legit, I'd buy their entire stock and resell them at more 'realsitic' prices.

Yes, i did that after I posted this thread. It doesn't look good. Bummer, I was so hopeful, like a kid that wants to believe Santa is real, but deep down inside he/she knows Santa doesn't exist. I just need 2 more lenses, the 31mm 1.8 and the 77mm 1.8. If only I had more money!

Top answer: 100% scam. That is a fake website pretending to sell cheap merchandise. Any site that advertises merchandise cheaper than the official ...
as the others have answered, if it's too good to be true, it isn't true.

No experience with them, but a dealer you should be aware of is Certified Digital. They're nothing but a rip-off artist(s).

What! Santa is not real? And, I can't buy a 31mm for under $1000 (yes I know B&H has them for $999 US, but the Aussie Dollar dropped through the floor today).

Next thing you going to tell me is that the Easter Bunny is not real and the Tooth Fairy really does look like the Rock!

Actually it was Sinterklaas, the Dutch version of Santa.
