It says out of stock...Do you know any other places at B&H price? even Adorama is selling for about $200 more expensive right now.

I believe BH has the lowest price- you can try calling them!

They'll let you place an order by phone. It might be worth the wait at this price! BH usually gets back-ordered stuff back in stock within 10 days.

*groans* It's a conspiracy. I'm holding out! I will not fall for their sales on the FA35 2.0 nor this amazing DA55 1.4! I will hold out! FA77! .....until some point tomorrow as the clock ticks down and I realize there's no hope....and then this is probably the lens I'll fall for.

*shakes fist at Adorama and B&H for their multitudinous temptations!*

It's once again possible to order this lens on the web site- get it before the deal expires!

I look forward to seeing your work with this lens Mike. Everything I've seen of yours posted here is just fantastic and I'm sure you will make the DA*55 shine - hopefully I can learn to get the best out of mine along the way.

LBA is contagious and spread out like a metastatic tumor. Once you start, you can't stop..!

LOL - I saw Mike's post and was going to come say the same thing Can't *wait* to see him make the DA55 dance!

Whenever MikeSF or jsherman get a new lens, I feel like I get months worth of free education in photography watching them post and talk about their awesome photos!

don't get me started on jsherman, he is the ultimate gasoline poured over the flames of LBA. I even bought a couple of lenses from him thinking some of that mojo might rub off on me...
