DA*300mm NIB for $999 delivered...but only for me!

Thats what the ebay ad from Dexter's Cameras and Hi Fi in Ventura Calif said so I checked them out and it just seems to be an old fashioned electronics store that happens to have a single lens sitting on the shelf because in his exact words "i want to get rid of this lens; its been on my shelf for a year. its new, never opened. 1 year warranty. pentax doesn't move too well here"

Well I know better to fall for that crap don't I? Wait....LBA grabs the mouse....clicks the Paypal button.......done.

Damn I hate it when that happens. We will see what the mom and pop store delivers on Friday.

Very nice! Every time I see sample pics from the DA* 300mm these days, the more I wonder how I can sell enough blood to finance one...

I admit...it was somewhat of an impulse buy since it was under $1000 and I had just had a semi-offer for a shotgun I no longer use for $800. Suddenly I could see making up the difference out of my piggy bank.

Awesome! I just paid almost that much for a used (in great condition) copy. You scored!

I will hold judgment until I see what I get. This isn't B&H I am dealing with...or the Forum Marketplace. But yes, good price for a new one shipped if all works out.

Most mom and pop stores are pretty good, so I imagine that you'll get what they described.

I'm sure this'll be one happy story.

Seems like the shotgun is your solution either way. j/k, of course.

One of the great things (few great things) about being unemployed is you have tons of time to get out and play with the toys if you are dumb enough to buy them. I rented one for 3 weeks earlier in the summer so oh yeah, it takes much better pics than I do.
