And it comes with Henry's 3 year warranty instead of Pentax's 1 (or 2 in Canada);

The box has been opened, likely for an in-store demonstration or display. Product is in perfect working order and comes with Henry's 3-year Open Box Warranty (non-Canadian customers can ship item back for any warranty issues). There are some very slight signs of handling, but the lens looks great! Please see list above for included accessories.
• HOW covers the cost of parts and labour for all repairs caused by manufacturers’ defects
• HOW 3-year term begins on date of purchase
• HOW includes global coverage
• HOW includes anti-lemon protection
• Further details provided below

Hmmm, why is it that I never have that amount of money available. Mind you, with two days left I would expect to see that bid shoot up to the stars in the next 48 hours.

Interesting that the warranty is a full year longer than the standard Pentax Canada warranty. I'd recommend buying all SDM lenses as open box specials.

Congrats on your new lens. The better warranty makes it tempting to buy new, return, then re-buy the open box
