edit - NOT so Hot deal on the DA40 Ltd

Hey gang,

I found the DA40 Ltd lens at Walmart.com for $270 (not including the 2-4% Microsoft Live Cashback). That's over $100 less than I've seen it at other places, so it seems like a good deal to me. Of course, if you've found something better, let us know! I ordered one to go on my *ist DL for a (almost) pocket sized dSLR.

Mods, if this is the wrong place, please move. I thought there was a "deals" section at one time, but I couldn't find it.

linky

(edit) okay, I see my Shop-fu is weak, and that others can beat my price easily. I will slink back to my corner of the internet and practice my search skills.

I've consistently seen the DA40mm LTD for $270 at B&H Photo. Amazon has it for $265 through Adorama.

Either way - it is a solid piece of glass that is quickly becoming my favorite lens.

Managed to order mine when there was 1 left in stock via ProPhotoBags for $219.95. Turns out there were actually 0 left in stock, and now it's on backorder.

One month later... still waiting. But I'm gonna get it at that price, one way or another!

Ouch! My Shop-fu is weak! When I searched a few weeks back, I couldn't find anything less than $400. Does the price fluctuate that much?

BTW, the Live Cashback is $13.49, so the price is still decent. Oh well, maybe I should ask around for prices on the DA70 Ltd.

afaik it's always been at the most around $270 from Amazon via its third-party sellers.

btw... Amazon has the K20D body-only for $674.95 right now. From Amazon itself, not a third-party seller.

That's a very nice price.
