Bought an 06 in the UK, prices

in the UK, most places have it at 249, higher than other countries because of taxes, but that's life.
I saw a few on a bit less 210-220 ish but shipped from Taiwan, China etc.

So, I bought this from an ebay seller

PENTAX 06 TELEPHOTO ZOOM 15-45mm F/2.8 Lens for Pentax Q Mount 027075217546 | eBay

121.76 + P&P + proper import duties.
Well it arrived last night, at a total legitimate cost of 155.64
Amazingly it took 2 days to cross the world, then another week to get "processed" in the UK!

Ok, it may have it's down sides re warranties and returns, but well worth it I though.
Very happy. Just need some bloody decent weather now to take some pics! Next weekend were away, so will try then.

You're not alone! In some ways, the world felt better and my trust in the Postal services were higher before internet tracking. Carl from Norway
