No cashback on 16-50 DA* in UK?

Am I right in seeing that Pentax are offerring cashback on almost all their current lenses apart from the 16-50mm da* in the current UK rebate scheme?

Is it because the QC problems they have had, has meant slimmer margins because of hight return rate?

You might be right. Other than that, and optimistic idea is that they honestly dont want to encourage people to make a risky buy...

nevertheless i have one on order sometime soon.

i think bristol cameras have the best price...

Of course it doesn't apply to the UK! The term is "Cash"back, which refers to the US Dollar. You guys use something called "Pounds" Everyone knows Pounds is what a carpenter does to nails! Besides, if they called it "Pounds"back, it would probably be confused with the Heimlich maneuver.


I hope you know I'm kidding...

You are right, but even more annoying, on the leaflet in store that you fill in to claim your cashback, there is a photo and a list of lenses which detail the amount of cashback per lens. In the photo there is clearly a DA* 16-50!
