Wow, that bundle is $755.98 at Adorama directly!

I love Adorama, but does anyone see a problem with this list of the bundle?

In light of the recent price increases in the US this is the best price I've seen by $150 or so for BNIB from an AD.

I'm guessing that they probably forgot they had it up on eBay..

A few days ago someone posted one on the FA 31.. But they have changed that now to the new price.

Also noticed that they typo-ed auto to aitp on the eBay ad.

They've added one because the eBay listing now says 3 Available / 4 Sold.

He needs to look at the email again. They are on Religious Holiday until Friday and all purchases are getting automated emails saying that they are sorry for the delay.

From eBay directly:
"This seller is currently away until May 17, 2013. If you make a purchase, there may be a delay in processing your order"

He insists it's shipped, he has tracking and all. Maybe they still processed orders early yesterday morning.

Anyways, don't blink! Amazon is at $595! Shipped & Sold by Amazon.

Amazon.com: Pentax SMCP-FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited Lens with Case and Hood (Black): Electronics

Don't understand the price drop seeing how they just went up a week ago.

edit: just realized it's on backorder.. only available on sunday..

I guess they figure you could use it on another lens, or else someone isn't putting much QC into these kits/ads.

At that price its a good deal either way. Sell the filter and apply that to offset some of the lens cost

Hi Docrwm,

What lenses can the 58mm filter be used for?
