Better than the guy on Craigslist trying to sell a used one for $450?

We'll see if they actually have any... my local London Drugs refused to price match, saying $399 was below cost - ordered one online from Aden, got the confirmation email, but three days later my card hasn't been charged and nothing further from Aden.

You need to call Aden, they are good guys but may take a few weeks to get the stock.

The 21 ltd is a freakin BARGAIN.

Yeah, they are great prices - cheaper than B&H or Adorama, and in CDN$! I almost went for the 21mm as well as the 70. I'm a retailler myself, so I tend to give others a lot of slack - I figured I'd give them another day before starting to call.

Big heads up, check out Aden, they have taken a big knife to almost everything.

How does a 70mmm limited sound for $400+?
Do these prices include the rebate? http://www.adencamera.com/index.asp?Category=7&Manufacturer=4

Click through and it'll tell you the price includes the rebate.

Pissed that I bought a 55-300 before I realized there were rebates--thought I was getting a good deal from Prodigital until Aden updated their prices a day later! I was even in Henry's and Downtown camera the day the rebates started and nobody had the prices marked down yet.

But still, there are bargains to be had, just nothing else I'm looking to buy right now!

Some of the marketplace listings are higher than those prices for DA ltd's! And the 17-70 is finally down to a sane price for what it is. Nothing I'm interested in, though (after blowing my lensmoney on C/Y mount Zeiss lenses to be converted!).

The rebate program lasts until the end of March, so I'm waiting to see what PMA brings before I buy.

You should send an email with order # as reference to confirm. They won't charge your card till item ships, that said i had one purchase arrive and still no confirmation email LOL (yes, my card was billed)

Thanks for the post. That 70mm is an insanely good deal, and the 21mm is basically 100 cheaper than I paid a year and a half ago!

I should count myself lucky that I managed to get the 31/43/77 for 855/475/600 from 2006-2009

The DA 21 and 70 are really good prices though.
