that price kinda pushes you towards the DA35/2.4 which stands at $180.

Is that not a good deal? Where do you find it for cheaper?

It's neither good nor bad in the sense that it's been that price for over a year from BHphoto. Now whether it's a good price compared to other options (DA35/2.4, FA43, etc) depends on what's important to you.

Combined with the K10D rebate a few years ago, this lens would have been like $200 or $225. Hindsight

Didn't know it has been at that $ for a year. Oh well. I still think it's a good deal for a limited lens.

That may be true, but the 40 is metal body/mount, distance scale (but no DOF indicators because of the small size), quick-shift focus, and is the smallest of the DA Limiteds.

...show me a new SMC Pentax 40mm f/2.8 Limited for sale from an authorized Pentax dealer ala Adorama/B&H for $339 and I'd do cartwheels on my way to PayPal checkout.

LOL, I never seem to catch these B&H "specials" (as the 40 Limited is presently $499 there)

It is actually 360 right now. You have to add it to the cart to see the real price.

That would be a good price if the 40 was 2.0.

Sigh.

Don't understand this, most of you are complaining that @ $360 or €250 it is too expensive? For an all aluminium auto focus pancake lens that more than a few of you have raved about of this very forum???
