Anyone ever do business with Provantage? This price seems to-good-to-be-true?

I don't think its "too good to be true" at all. I got mine for $530 from Office Max with free overnight shipping and a free bag.

BTW, the pentax 49mm squeeze lens cap fits this lens perfectly. (EDIT: already beat me to it)

Sometimes the oddball sellers have killer pricing. Office Max is certainly a legitimate outfit (although now they're merging with Office Depot) and they do sell Pentax occasionally.

I prefer the old-style squeeze 49mm caps for the 15 because the are just right for allowing even the hood to operate with it in place (not that there is a real advantage to that but hey it works).

I have purchased other non-camera items from provantage over the years and I have not had any problems with them.

Ordered and received this lens from ProVantage. Everything looks good. I did get the call to make sure that I had really ordered it, but otherwise and entirely straightforward transaction.

Ordered 15mm from Provantage on Sat 4/6 and got it on tuesday. New in box. $514+$5 ship.
There were 8 in stock when I ordered, now there's only 2 left. Best price out there right now.

Just ordered one, so only one left now! Looking forward to using this lens. Thanks for the "price watch" heads-up.

I ordered one Thursday afternoon and got it Friday before lunch. I live in L.A. and the warehouse is in Fresno, a 200 mile drive.

The few test pictures I took look great. It will get exercised Saturday when I go out to the Antelope Valley to shoot joshua trees in bloom.

As for the guarantee, I spoke to Matt at Pentax in Colorado. He told me that ANY legitimately purchased new Pentax product, in a box with a warranty card is covered. Just need to keep the receipt. I am not worried.

I missed this deal I kept checking back to see if they got anymore in... Now they don't even list it.
Next time I need to decide to pull the trigger a little sooner.

Don't give up. They just finished a second batch at that price a couple of days ago. I'd guess they'd list them again.

I got one from the first batch. It's a great lens.
