The white one is the one I order from Ador but I am not going to mess with it because with my luck, one of the items will be depleted when if I were to try it.
Plus, for $7 I got an extended 1 year warranty for the K-01.
$7? That's a good deal.

Ah i think i need to stay away from the forum until prices go back up. Still crazy high in the UK in comparison! I would be buying a DA *60-250 at that price on B+H if i was in the good old US of A right about now

Out of curiosity, how much would they quote to ship the lens to the UK (customs + UPS)?

Still a good deal then, I'd say, if you're saving $849 to begin with!

Duty would be $200 on a $750 purchase? Really? 26.67% - wow.

You should try buying a pint (beer) over there. You have to be rich to get drunk.

It comes to $1585 with duty and postage which is 988. That is about 120 cheaper than can be had for in UK so a decent saving all round. The thing that puts me off though is if something goes wrong like the SDM failing and it has to be sent back to the US.

I received my 50-135mm from B&H today. The inner box (Pentax box) was damaged and the lens' front cap was broken already. The hood had unsnapped from the lens, probably in shipping, and along with the lens was moving around freely in the pouch - probably what caused the cap to break. Anyways, the lens seems to be working fine and has no damage itself. From my first tests I can see this lens as being my sharpest up until now. Very pleased with the first results. Its built quality is superb, except for the lens cap obviously .
