A couple of good deals - DA 40mm & DA 70mm

I think the recent fluctuations in currency rates have opened up some interesting possibilities.

I think this DA 40mm brand new can be had for under $210 from Prodigital2000. They never have an open auction on this lens. They usually have it with BuyIt Now price for $249. I think their newer listings are going up in price. This is the last chance to pick up a good deal.

Here's another one from Henry's. I never noticed a DA 70mm at such a low starting bid and such a low BuyItNow price.

Could be wrong, but I think that 70 is "used"...

DA70 bargains?

Yes, that is a used lens, but a pretty good price, considering it's Henry's and comes with their 90 day warranty. On the other hand taxes would have to be paid by a Canadian buyer. In Ontario that works out to $470 for the BIN price. I've got one of these in the marketplace asking $450 and haven't had a nibble from a Canadian. I'm going to try eBay in a couple of days, maybe it'll end up going overseas.
