Got me a DA15mm ltd coming =D

After hours of looking at the `DA15mm controls my mind` thread and being constantly amazed by this lens i found a great deal on the marketplace for one of these lenses in Australia. You wouldnt believe the ridiculous pricing of the lens here so im fair pleased with the purchase.
So happy i just had to let everyone know about it =p
Will post photos once i get the lens

Hiya,

I see you're in Adelaide too. Where did you find the deal?

I agree with you about the prices here... they're all over the shop... the DA15 Ltd is less than the DA70 Ltd at Adorama, but here it's over double the price!

I'm in Brisbane, and my DA15 just arrived from Adorama. Service was very quick, and even with UPS shipping added in (not cheap) the price was still only about half of what is being asked here on various online "discount" camera stores.

My advice? Buy it from Adorama! I also just received my Pentax AF-160C ring flash from them, and I have a new Sigma 8-16mm on pre-order from them too.

I'm hoping to get out and about with the DA15 in the next few days.

Gah its almost here, got a pm saying it was sent this morning, fair buzzing

@nick
I got it from the marketplace on this very forum. Had a few squizzes but most of it is usually from the US. Was such a bargain i had 2 have it =)

@pete
i was looking to buy it from bhphotovideo.com but still had a hard time pulling the trigger, being a pov student and all. Maybe once i get a job i can start looking at getting more than 1 lens a year =p

I'm tossing up the next purchase...

I chose the DA70 Ltd (which I also got from Adorama) over the DA*55 f/1.8 because of all the talk of SDM problems.
Now I'm torn between the DA15 Ltd (also after reading the DA15 controls my mind thread), the DA* 16-55, or a K7 with the kit lens (just been through the Kit Lens Club thread and there are some really fantastic shots there).

I am avoiding reading the '15mm controls my mind' and any other thread pertaining to lenses on my wish list. Reading them would end in buying them, would end in death/divorce... i might go read it now.

Hope you enjoy your new lens. Look forward to seeing some pictures

I think pentax should give j.sherman a big hug and a lens for making that thread, i am sure it has been the cause of many da15 sales worldwide

It's a sweet lens and will give you a lot of breathtaking photos in the yrs to come. A wide angle at this size is quite a treat, gotta love Pentax for manufacturing this gem. Enjoy!
