If you want my advice be smart and buy one from the first lot shipped because those are pre-ordered in 2008 by the dealers. Latter batches will be more expensive worldwide. Of course it depends on the currencies variations but Pentax will charge more in Yen for the next shipments of this lens.

I had almost given up on anyone ever wanting this lens anymore, because of the constant delays. There seems to be plenty of interest for this lens.

For what its worth, I was at B&H yesterday browsing around, and asked about the lens. To my despair, they said they didn't have any such lens in the system!

Could just be the guy was a bit confused, but has anyone actually been able to order one yet?

Lens and Shutter Vancouver has one for $1900 Canadian

Played with one May 11th at Lens and Shutter Vancouver. They want $1900 Canadian for it so it went back on the shelf. Leos was advertising it for $1749 before it was available. Not sure where it will end up.
