Ugh. Why has B&H had all the great deals and Adorama not had any good deals the last few days? I am sitting on a $200 Adorama gift card, and don't want to just burn it paying full price for something. This would have been a great choice.

Can't you call Adorama and ask them to price match?

I think Adorama didn't get authorization for as many new deals due to the K-50 fire sale the other week. Not sure. It was very similar last year.

Perhaps I could do that and see if they will. Of course I would still need to fork out $200 out of pocket to get this lens. Not sure that's a wise idea after this weekend. New K-5ii w/ 18-135 on the way, Galaxy Note 10.1, many Wii U games... My bank fold is thin this week, lol.

Nice! The Note 10.1 is really sweet. But you could sell the 18-55 to get a few bucks back in. And even the K30 if you don't need two bodies.

But then again, you might already have taken those into account...

Yeah Amazon had a lightning deal on the 1st gen Note 10.1's. $379.99 for the 32GB version, I couldn't pass it up. I wanted the 2014 edition, but it was not worth $170 more to me.

I have the K30 listed for sale on here already, I have no idea how long it will take to sell but I don't think i'll get my asking price.
