As I have said, forgive my ignorance, I don't know Rice Low and why he hates Pentax so much. I could just assume that he was mugged and was hit in the head by a K-7 and went bonkers. Besides how can he say that the new lens is awful when it hasn't even been reviewed plus, I like the red rings. Red and black are a perfect match for me.

Another odd thing is that they say ''last 5 in stock''. 3 days ago was 6 in stock. Can it really have been discontinued? I've checked at Adorama and B&H, and their is nothing about a limited stock or something like this.

Stock numbers are just for that particular vendor. (You have to pay attention to who it says is actually selling it -- if someone else lowers their price or the top one runs out of stock, it will simply switch to another vendor.) If it is sold by Amazon themselves and stock is low, it will usually say something like "3 left (more on the way)". When buying on Amazon, there is a mix of reputable and less than desired dealers. Make sure you choose from the whole list of offers rather than just adding to cart from whatever it says. (Personally, I would stick to "ships and sold by Amazon" for new gear, although Adorama and some other good dealers sell via Amazon also, but might as well just go to their site.)

Wise attitude. But it is not usually because the vendors are dishonest - just ignorant of the product they are selling. Buyer beware not just of dishonest sellers but of poorly informed ones.

Totally agree! Sellers often have no idea what they are selling, especially online.

Yeah ... you are not far from being 100% correct.
