DA 40mm for $251 at ebay
Posted By: Eagle_Friends, 09-23-2012, 10:29 PM

Looks like the seller: electronicsvalley has tons of DA 40mm for sell in a much cheaper price... new too?

Trustworthy?

Ratings looking legit..

Looks like a misprint . He has the 40 xs for $397. I bet you would receive the xs for the $251 if you ordered the da

Says Limited everywhere in the auction so Paypal would cover you in case you get the XS.

I just called the company and the sales rep verified that it was in fact the DA 40 limited, not the xs. Very tempting deal!

Makes you wonder why they have the XS for more???

I still say its going to be a ceiling fan, although a compact one that hugs the ceiling

Only a "very tempting deal"? B&H has it for $469.99, Adorama $499.99

I don't recall this lens being so cheap since it was like $175 with body purchase back in the K10/20 mail-in rebate days, and then it MSRP'd at like $225 before the Hoya price hikes.

Thanks for verifying it's the Ltd, I am in for one

"Donate" per definition doesn't generate a revenue, _selling_ a kidney does
