Scott you stated "You could rotate the ring by gripping the metal lower part, but it's very difficult" Is your copy really metal, My 06 is plastic and already scratched. The zoom ring under the rubber, the focus ring and the body of the lens (camera side of the zoom ring) are plastic. The lens mount is metal. My 02 with the exception of the focus ring is metal.

Don't get me wrong I love the lens and it is sharp but I wasn't expecting so much plastic after getting my 02

I agree, the 06 is sharp but plasticky. I'm still glad I bought it.

Adam must have need right then......

Is that really the price, or is it a typo? I mean, the MAP price was $249, and if it went up to 299, that's reasonable, but 599 looks like a typo to me.

You seem to be right. The Pentax Webstore seems to have finally changed it to $299. However, you can still see the impact of the $599 listing on prices at eBay. Several $296 offerings were prematurely removed and replaced by the same sellers with $350+ prices for example.

Perhaps you got the last one from them because they no longer list the 06 in their list of Pentax gear for sale.

Couldn't find the 06 on their site any longer. Perhaps $328 is merely $238 with two digits reversed?
