The AF540FGZ II on the auction site is now offered at around $500+ USD....

---------- Post added 01-19-22 at 05:46 AM ----------

you think I did well with the purchase,
unfortunately the AF540FGZ ll does not have the original packaging, only a tarpaulin Pentax bag,
while with DFA 28-105 / 3.5-5.6 I got everything like new from the store

yet that Ricoh releases the new DFA 70-320 / 4.5-5.6 ED SDM WR in the tradition as long ago Pentax FA80-320 / 4.5-5.6

I looked at prices for this flashgun in Europe sold on eBay - they varied a lot from about 80 (as is) to around 200 (for mint in box). Prices asked on items still to sell vary up to really silly money - but these won’t sell. I found the same when looking for an A35-105mm a couple of years ago; anything from realistic to silly money being asked but only the realistically priced were selling. Haggle or keep looking.

when I convert 230 euros that's 190 pounds, I'm 2 years old AF540FGZll in Pentax tarpaulin bag without original packaging and accompanying literature paid so much, a new one locally costs me 490 euros or 410 pounds, DFA 28-105 / 3.5-5.6 new is 540 euros or 450 pounds locally for me and I bought a 3.5 year old in the original packaging (as new) for 300 euros or 250 pounds, i don't see any disruption in my domestic market, only the Pentax equipment dealer not in stock camers or lenses , he is before used to have and I could borrow and try them out (we are friends at home)
