I should count myself lucky that I managed to get the 31/43/77 for 855/475/600 from 2006-2009
I didn't do as well as you, but an FA 50 and FA 35mm at $500 for the pair looks really good now.

The DA 21 and 70 are really good prices though.
This is probably the best price we'll ever see from here on for the three amigos.

wow those are some pretty insane prices. tempting to get back in
15mm $709 (no rebate)
21mm $439
35mm $529
40mm $399
70mm $399
The DA 15 price does the $50 rebate--I don't know if they ever got the 15 in, it's been saying "coming soon" since October. But that one's $499 US at Adorama, so still much cheaper to import.

The price of the DA 14mm is interesting though--$489.99 at Aden, and $699 US at Adorama! The DA70 is $399 here, and $549 US at Adorama (even the "add to cart" price).

The 35, 21, FA50 are cheaper up here too. Ah, just like the good ol' days...

I was in the Henry's outlet center today and they had a bunch of open box DA 70's for $529. Good luck with those!

I feel like I should buy something but I have the 21, have the 77 (tookit over the 70), have the 35/2 (so can do without the 40) and have the 12-24 to cover the 15 (son't like WA primes).

Even the long glass is cheap, but i'm planning to have kids soonish and be damned if i am gonna have time to go out hunting wildlife for a few years.

I wanted to see if there will be a currency conversion on checkout but there wasnt. My total plus shipping for the lens I want is $491.54 CAD. I know that right now its 1.06 CAD to 1 USD but I'd hate to throw extra money away.

I don't normally order from overseas that much. Normally I order from Hong Kong and the conversion's already done before you place the order.

It looks like Aden gets alot of US customers. I read their orders and shipping FAQ and they lump Canadian and US customers together. Everyone else is "international".

hahaha I actually want a 15mm even tho I have the 12-24, just because it is small and easy to carry around. 35/2 is the best solution for make yourself not to get 31 and 40mm :P (when it was cheap)

Has anyone been able to get any lenses from Aden Camera?

I ordered a DA70 over a week ago - received a order confirmation email, but to this date no shipping confirmation, no charge on my card, no answer to three emails, and no one is answering the phone.

Has anyone been by their store, do they actually have any of these lenses? The site still says 'In Stock' and the price hasn't changed. I don't mind waiting for a good deal, but it seems all my personal info and CC# has disappeared into a black hole.

I called three times today, twice the number for online inquiries and once the store number - no one ever picked up. And I've sent three (polite) emails, last Wednesday, Friday and this morning, with no reply.

Maybe everyone is watching the Olympics! I'll try again tomorrow.

To be fair, Henry's never replied to the email I sent them, either

Now that explains a lot (smacks forehead with palm). No holiday for us in BC, but at least it was sunny and warm!
