used lenses at BorrowLenses.com

BorrowLenses.com is having a cyber monday sale on used gear, including some Pentax Lenses (60-250, for $999, DA14 for $475, and some others).

Good find, although this weekend those prices aren't killing it. The DA14 isn't bad but the others.....you can go to B&H right now and do a new lens for just a few dollars more.

Was just coming to the thread to post the same thing. They need to have this sale some time *not* on the one weekend of the year when Adam has hypnotized Adorama and B&H to drop prices

Too true. Adam seems to have really gotten B&H's attention this weekend and we, as a community, have stepped up and made out purchases now that lens pricing is back to sane levels. Although Pentax did a smart thing in bringing the II models out at much more reasonable levels than the original rollout of the K-5, perhaps they have been hypnotized by Adam too?

The 60-250 is $200 lower than the BH price...though personally, if I'm going to spend $1000+ on a lens,
I would want a warranty and the BorrowLens lenses come without one.

That was my point. For an SDM lens a warranty is a necessity IMHO.
