Pentax DA 70mm $500 new, DA 21mm $550
Posted By: TopherTheME, 04-09-2012, 05:09 PM

Aden Camera has the DA Limited 70mm on sale for $500 and the DA Limited 21mm for $550. They also have some deals on other lenses as well. I ordered the 70mm last week, and while they did charge my card, I haven't received a shipping notice or the lens yet so shipping looks rather slow. I'm guessing its because I'm in the states but its something to keep in mind.

they never stock heavily but i would not be surprised to find a copy in the downtown store just not on the web-store. they only recently started actually selling via the web. I think the US price jump maybe caught them off guard, not expecting to ship to the bigger US market
Though they list a lot they don't always have stock.

I was on the phone yesterday with Aden Camera and they said they just got some of the DA 70's in stock. My order has shipped, although it still says no stock on the website.

that sounds about right. they've never been a very good web-store IMO, but they are improving. Mind you the instore service has always been pretty Cr*p too, but they always have good prices and are an authorized dealer. If you know what you want and plan on keeping it they are fine to deal with. If you are uncertain about the product then bigger dealers with return policies are better (Though i think Henrys pretty much sucks in store as well, if you get the right person they know their stuff, but the right person is hard to find)
If you live local here Downtown Camera is fantastic (other more esoteric shops like eight elm before it closed - he retired - were also amazing for their segments)
Vistek is better than Henrys but hit and miss too with the staff - I do ok there because i drink beer with many of them at the pub next door )
