$10 does seem a bit low. $15 would be more reasonable if they sent you a good fitting genuine Pentax case like an S-80 80. Otherwise $20 minimum for a generic case.
At KEH I've found the case/caps must be stated positively. If they don't say the lens includes them, it doesn't.

I don't think they differentiate between the leather pouch and a standard pentax case though, do they? They only say "includes front/rear cap, hood, case" or something like that.

S80-80 is exactly the case that they sent.

There listing stated that the case was included, I just thought that it would be the correct case. If it had been a generic front cap instead of the proper one, the lens would have probably gone back. This was my first experience buying from KEH so thank you all for sharing your experiences as well.

Great shot Rondec! I actually looked at your Flickr when considering the DA*55. Thanks for the input guys.

Got the lens today, included everything but the box & manual - case, hood, caps - AND it is in mint condition

As for whether this will take the FA 43's spot, at least for indoor (chasing my son), the AF seems slower, so I am thinking maybe not. Outdoors, the AF seemed fine, albeit a bit slower than the 43. Key here is the AW, shot this wide open in a heavy snow storm playing with the dog:



Definitely can't do THAT with the 43 I'll take it.

I can see you were crouched from the reflection in the dog's eyeball.

True story. I know a little off topic, but I'm working on composition/technique - any thoughts on the pic itself?
