Gosh mine was a steal at just over $150 - this is a great lens for those of us who value a light kit over ultimate top-dollar performance.

I picked one up yesterday. All the stores said the item was available but out of 4 I tried to order from, only one had display model available. They gave me $10 discount. Since it's Pentax, no one would even check it out in the store anyway so it's basically brand new without the boxes.

The store locator today has "Includes open box items" (yesterday said "All items available") when you check availability - not mentioned on the page itself...

Still show as "all items available" for NoCal... pretty stupid.

I found one in a SoCal store near my sister - does anyone have experience having someone else pick up an order from Frys? On the checkout page it says the person picking up has to match the name on the credit card, but the confirmation email just says "bring this email to the store." I'm hoping there isn't much hassle...

They don't charge the credit card until pickup... So putting your card down from online order really isn't going to help. It's best to have her order it and pick it up for you.

Drove to two stores in SoCal and was able to only find two open box models worth buying.
I received 5% off of two basically BNIB lenses, and passed on the other.

There is one more available in the City of Industry Fry's but it is missing hood, front lens cap, and box.
They wanted to discount that one 10%, but I did not think it as worth it since the others were basically BNIB for $4-5 more.

I am trading one of the two for a BNIB Canon Pixma Pro Printer (The one that people were getting huge rebates on). Only issue I can see will be the cost of replacement ink in the future.
