DA* 55 for US$449, b-i-n eBay
Posted By: baro-nite, 01-09-2012, 11:03 AM

Pentax SMC DA 55mm f/1.4 SDM Prime Standard Lens | eBay

Don't know about the manufacturer's warranty, but this looks like a great deal if the description is accurate.

Looks like the listing was pulled; if it seemed too good to be true, it probably was... :-(

Something odd about that -- why list for an already low b-i-n price and then sell it for less, almost as soon as it is listed?

I checked the auction when you first posted and it was shown as being sold for $449. Now it's being shown as sold for $359.20, which is exactly 20% off $449. Beyond that I have no idea what to make of it.

FWIW, I've bought from that seller before and got a great deal on a 100WR macro lens (which was in perfect condition) so they are legit, just now sure what's going on with the 20% after-the-fact discount.
