Lens Price

This won't help attract people to Pentax...

New Pentax Da 70mm F2 4 Limited Lens with 1 Year Warranty Silver 0027075124783 | eBay

At least it comes with a free 1 year warranty, and free shipping...

You have to wonder about people who advertise outrageous prices like this on eBay. I'd wonder less about anyone who bought at those prices, though. In defence of Pentax, those sellers do silly stuff like this to all other brands. I'm still wondering what they actually get out of it.

The seller probably made a mistake and put a comma in the wrong place.

No need to sigh

Apparently, it's a common mistake!

Probably as the rhythm of life is getting faster and faster we become more and more negligent..

He doesn't have it in stock at the moment; when he does he'll put the real price on it.

These kinds of mistakes happen pretty often. I bet it was supposed to be $613! I'm sure it'll be fixed soon enough.

I have read that these kinds of things are used to launder money. They use items that are relatively high price to begin with, let it sit for awhile and have a cohort "buy" the item.
