Recession woes, so all the heirlooms get put up for sale.

Even our very own WendyB has listed something:
SMC Pentax-FA 28-105MM F4-5.6IF(S) Zoom Lens "RARE" - eBay (item 280323116719 end time Mar-22-09 19:00:00 PDT)
That is definitely a rare lens to see these days ...

If that really is the WendyB here, I'm not surprised to see her upsell the lens as "rare".

I know I am new in this busninsses but checking ebay today looks like a lot more FA lenses are in the used market then even lets say last month...

looks like you can find all the FA *s even on one page

pentax FA, Cameras Photo, SLR items on

so is it final no FF camera from pentax did poeple give up on the dream? or is it just a random lucky day on ebay?
Yep, you see what you see. Quite a few people that I knew for years, or should I say decades, shooting Pentax decided to switch system after this PMA announcements. I think both Canon and Nikon should award Pentax management or public relations department for bringing in more sales to Canon and Nikon.
