Pentax DA55-300mm new for $310 shipped

I noticed that a seller who might be related to Wolf Camera (not sure but that's the implication) is listing the DA55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED new for US$299 with $10 shipping on a popular action site. They have two copies available.

Tempted as I am by this, I'm not certain that I'm sticking with Pentax long-term and now is not the time for me to buy another K-mount lens.

Bonne chance

if the seller is named something like clearance center (can't remember it exactly) and based in texas, your assumption is far as I know! They don't take paypal which kinda stinks (would be nice to tack on the 8% bing cashback)...not that I need this lens! It is a good deal though. They have been randomly selling Pentax lenses for awhile, seems they pop up whenever they are getting store stock back to the warehouse inventory - the offerings have been pretty random, but good deals all around.

Careful with the Clearance center - they have good prices, but they also charge taxes (since Wolf/Ritz is located in many states). So, the total of $309 + whatever tax might be worse than a new copy from Amazon at $325. Besides, you can't return to Clearance Center since the sales are final.
