Jsherman should thank me profusely :-)

I believe Jay took the tipoff from me and bought a DA35 Ltd ~$330 delivered.

If that was true, visit that site again today Jay.
You won't believe it ... $1,218

Wow, yes, after your tip, that's where I got my latest copy. Holy crap, what is going on?



Anyway, here's a shot from this $1200 lens:

Beautiful shot Jay, as usual.
The water looks so calm and gives a peaceful feeling rightaway.

And yeah ... the pricing there is really weird!

And that's the sort of quality I would expect from a $1200 lens!
What a beautiful image. Just stunning.

That's got to be a typo or deliberate attempt to fleece Pentax customers because online prices don't quite match that...!

That's just priceless I wonder what's the rationale on doing this weird price shift? Maybe they typoed Jay's price and is trying to recoup the difference?

Either way congrats to Jay... I've gone the FA 35 path but I find myself still lusting for this little gem and the DA 40 (curse you M40/2.8!)...

Meh, both of them are horrible at f/2

I was just at adorama looking for something else and looked out of curiosity. They have it currently for $499. I didn't check BH.
