Posted By: pdirestajr, 05-23-2013, 08:02 AM

Um, this just came up on Amazon...
http://www.amazon.com/Pentax-15mm-Limited-Digital-Cameras/dp/B001UHOR4W/ref=...pentax+limited

I ordered it because why not Amazon is legit.

"Ships from and sold by Computer Brain." Amazon is just the marketplace in this case, like eBay, but they will help in disputes.

Great deal if they actually honor the orders! (Hey, if they use a "computer brain" for their fulfillment, you might get the lens before the humans notice!)

5% negative feedback rating over their lifetime of 40000 total. that equals 2000 bad transactions.

still, if I could afford to throw around 120 bucks and I wanted a da15, I would probably take a flier on this.

keep us updated!

To me it looks like they swapped the discount and the price fields. They'll probably still honor it, though!

I was also checking out the seller's ratings...
I wonder what caused this to happen though?

"We're sorry. The item Pentax SMC 15mm f/4.0 DA ED AL Limited Wide Angle Lens for Pentax Digital SLR Cameras is no longer available from the seller you selected. To see if it's available from another seller, click here to return to the item's product detail page."

Oh well

Although they appear to have done what Adam said, but for ALL their Pentax lenses (well, the other two anyways).

Anyone want a 18-55 or 50-200 for 15 bucks?

I do have 120 to take a flyer. I ordered one and used Amazon's CC to pay for it.

If it's legit, will be my second copy and will probably give it to GF.

So look for a Sigma 10-20 on the Marketplace soon if all works out...lol

Jin, sorry, I must have gotten the last one.

Nah don't worry. I hope you do get it.

I myself placed an order for the 18-55 and 50-200 WR for $40 after tax.

I took a swing at the 50-200 WR for $15! Why not?

Decided to add the 18-55 as well for another $15. Did it in a separate order in case one of them bombs out, doubles my chance for success.

Hope it works out! If not, I figure the worst that could happen is they just cancel the order. I feel my cc is safe with the Amazon system.

Also, hi all! I'm new to the Pentax forum. Been a reader here but joined today to post this.
