Any idea when the DA 40mm pancake lens will be back in stock?

Any idea when the DA 40mm pancake lens will be back in stock? It seems to be sold out everywhere.

Thanks!

Hi, Chuck. That makes me cry a little because I pre-purchased one on the day of the Pentax event. Please advise. Feel free to PM. Thank you!

Hello,

Product from Pentax is both excellent and always in short supply. We will fulfill your order but cannot give you a date. If you want this lens it worth waiting for.

Sad face. Finally united with my brand new DA 40 to find that either it's broken or I'm retarded. Everything about it is stiff. It's difficult to mount on the camera, it won't autofocus, stiff manual focusing (yes, on M). See you on Sunday.

Sorry to hear that. Mine is a bit stiff going on and coming off of the camera compared to other lenses, but I have no other complaints about it. Hope you get a good replacement.

I got there right at closing. Waiting again for backordered shipment. Thank you kindly!


Please be advised, all: I was offered the option to return, exchange for something else, etc., but opted (pleaded) to wait.
