Just picked up a KEH 1.8 50mm for 205 shipped

Oh what deals I'm scoring!
Oh you beat me to it, what's the condition?

Just wanted to give a heads up:

I had back-ordered the K30 kit after it went out of stock hoping it would be in stock soon. After seeing post about K5 ii w/18-135 being available on Overstock for just 985 bucks, I cancelled this K30 order on Hunt's. On Tuesday I got an email from Chris from Hunt's confirming my order cancellation with a foot-note that they are receiving a new lot of K30 kits over next weekend.

So if anybody has back-ordered this kit, well you may keep your fingers crossed and hope that you get your kit soon.

They are getting these in on a fairly regular basis. I placed my back order for the K30 WR kit on July 11th, it shipped on the 17th, I received it a few days later. The kit was exactly as expected, with the WR lens.

I also placed a back order for the DA35 F2.4 on the same day (11th). It shipped out finally on the 23rd (supposed to receive it tomorrow). They are still offering both of these on the website.

Have no fear of back ordering. They honor the price, and don't charge until it ships (I have verified this with both parts of my order).

I ordered on the 17th and so far it has yet to ship. Finally decided I had waited long enough to give them a call and it seems that they will have them before the end of the month. (Would not give a specific time frame but when I mentioned the end of the month he said most likely)

Still seems like the best deal on it. It seems the k5-II deal fell through.

One weird question I have is does the invoice date count as the date purchased on the ship date since I could theoretically not be within my 30 day extended warranty window if this drags on long enough.

I know they are pretty open. I bought the camera from them. Just call and ask them to print the receipt the day they ship the camera, not the day you put teh order. I am sure they will do that for you. that way you dont have to worry about the 30 days. for warranty purposes you bought the camera the day it was shipped. Period.. (is not like you're breaking any rules as they dont even charge your card until they ship)

Good point. That's the purchase date - when your card is charged, and what the invoice should show. Not sure if I remember correctly, but I think the invoice is printed and placed in the box they when they ship.. So it should be fine.

For me, the invoice date was the ship date, which matched the card charging date. No worries there folks.

Alright thanks for the information I just kind of did not want to buy a warranty on a backordered item if it never shipped.

I just ordered a K-30 kit with WR lens for US$630 which I thought was a pretty good deal until I saw this!

this is my first dslr and even with my very limited knowledge i could see that this was NOT a good lens. 50mm @5.6 is worse than my 3-4 year old point and shoot in terms of sharpness. Whenever i try to focus in smaller objects (flowers, bees, etc) i couldn't get it 100% sharp no matter what.
I got a 50mm 1.7 to see how it goes.
I am also considering a 135mm... but not sure if i will need this badly as this will be a totally new focal length for me
