LBA and Another Happy Prodigital2000 Customer

You might have noticed that i asked a lot about Prodigital2000 lately, sorry for asking so many questions on other threads. With a big order, it's easy to get nervous.

I put in an order before midnight on April 30 (Wednesday) to Prodigital2000, all items were noted in stock when i bought on eBay. I used the ChannelAdvisor payment system and payment was processed on May 1. Because of some stories of FA Limiteds being out of stock, I made a call on May 2 (Friday) to check the order. They did not reduce the shipping for the combined items however, I should have had this changed, the online site does not account for it. The sales rep seemed kinda new because he kept on checking with someone else for answers, but he said that because i'd made a large order, they'd have to check my CC, but it should be able to ship that day. I checked on eBay and the items had been marked as being sent on May 2 (despite not being noted in the ChannelAdvisor site). This was good because since i forgot to change the e-mail of my eBay account so i never got the UPS tracking number. This afternoon the door bell rings and the UPS guy's at the door. I'd heard many iffy stories about strange packaging, but mine's looked fine, possibly because of the number of items.

First impressions, these lenses are a lot beefier than the DA Limited. I always had the impression they were even better constructed than the DA Limited but this is not true. The extra weight is nice, makes the camera more stable to hold (at least for me). The FA31 is quite the beast, but not to the point of being overwhelming.

So in conclusion, don't hesistate to purchase from them! I think i took their last FA77 tho

I second that. I received a black 31/1.8 last week. No hassles, quick shipment.

If I was allowed but two lenses, the 31/1.8 would be the second! The IQ is just so smooth!

my thought is to get them while they're still around, even if i won't use them all.
who knows if Pentax will ever be crazy enough to make lenses like these again and they should be great when (not if :P) Pentax go FF

i worked half a year but my employer charged me as if i had worked a full year so i had much more than expected ... and seeing how the FA Limiteds seem to be dwindling in quantity, might as well. i don't think i'll need to make any lens purchases for awhile (don't hold me to this please!)
