Pre-MAP Price for DA 35 Limited at Adorama
Posted By: Biro, 09-09-2012, 05:47 PM

I just ordered the DA 35mm f/2.8 Limited prime from Adorama, which like virtually everyone else this weekend, has the lens listed at $699 on its website. *But when you add it to your cart the price is $529. *This is not the case at B&H and even, incredibly, *Both sites stick with $699 - at least tonight.

I don't know how this MAP mess is going to shake out but I figured I'd grab this lens now at this price. *Unless I see other cases where a lens price slips through the cracks, this is likely my last Pentax lens purchase for a while. I hope I am not creating problems for the good people at Adorama by posting this.

If anyone else plans to take advantage of this, you can order it here:

Good find!!

I do not want one but thought I would try on another lens. Tried the same on the 60-250, the most expensive of the lenses, and no go on it.

It strikes me that Adorama and B&H are trying to get around some of the price restrictions? Someone over at DPReview said that many of the lenses are at a 50% discount if ordered from B&H or Adorama directly. Can anyone confirm this?
