DA* 300mm f4 - Availability in Canada

I've been looking for a DA* 300mm F4 anywhere in Canada. It seems everyone is back-ordered/out of stock. Even B&H and Adorama show as out of stock.

Does anyone know where I can get one, or alternately is something is expected. I'm sadly not up to date on rumors.

Seems to be a supply and demand problem. B&H says it ships within 7-10 days, which means it's either on its way to them already, or they have it drop-shipped from Pentax (which is unlikely).

Hmm if you don't mind ordering out of country I'm sure eBay has a few listings available.

Like the previous poster said, london drugs seems to show it as orderable as well.

Contact Prodigital2000, they will order you one at a great price.

You can always try Henry's. Doesn't appear there's a store out west but the DA*300mm has to be special order anyhow.

Looks like the camera store in Calgary has them in stock, according to their website. Never dealt with them.

Remember to check the warranty if you buy from the US. On everything Pentax that I've purchased the warranty has been twice as long here in Canada as it is in the US. On a sizeable purchase that is certainly worth considering.

I have purchased from the Camera Store in Calgary and received great service,free shipping,didn't' have to pay PST and they price match (Seneal Camera Calgary seem to have lower prices). Might be worth a call!

All the dealings I've had with The Camera Store has been excellent. They had DA* 300 in stock when I was last in Calgary in early February.

Try Henry's on queen street , toronto. They had both the 200/2.8 and 300/4 the last time I was in, about 6 weeks ago

My only small issue with them is they recently kept advertising the smc DA 15 in stock... so I bought one. Well, three days later they told me they didn't have any. I was not surprised, but I have had a few times where online stock doesn't match in store stock.

As for the DA*300, McBain's main store in Edmonton had (has?) one the last time I was in, a few weeks back.
