Brits: 50-200 on sale!

Hi,

The 50-200 is on sale at 30 at Jessops: Pentax 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DA ED Lens - Jessops

So... who is the nice guy in Britain who'll get me one and mail it to me in Denmark? I'll transfer 35 + postage in advance :-)

This is a great price but odd. It's popped up in a few spots. I wonder if they have a huge surplus or the lens is being discountinued? Has to be far less than production cost.

On the UK Pentax forum, they are saying all their orders have been backordered.
A gazillion folks jumped on the ad.

It must be an error then. It's too low to cover the costs IMO. Arorama has new ones listed on sale at $175 USD from $199. I wonder if it's a mistake of some sort?

Its no error... I posted a while back about it they've actually reduced the price from 50 to 30. It seems that Jessops are trying to get rid of some pentax stock, when i popped in to my local smaller store they had orders to send it all back to their HQ to be redistributed only to the big stores.

Most annoying fact with Jessops is that they don't EVER have ANYTHING in stores on stock for Pentax!!! Well at least not in London. However I will check out if I can find this one somewhere... thanx fo posting it...

Just to point out that I spent some time going through every county in England and they don't actually have any stock of the 50-200mm in store only for "special order" online. Hope this saves you some time!!!
