Pentax 50mm f1.8 European bargain
Posted By: bxf, 12-29-2013, 07:45 PM

In case somebody is interested: Amazon UK has been selling this lens at what appears to be a very good price - relatively speaking, that is, as I think it may be overpriced in the first place. Anyway, it's selling for 119 with free shipping to some countries.

Also, the 50-135 is going for €910 at Not bad for Europe.

Apologies if this post is in an inappropriate forum.

I spotted this too - and bought one (I think someone must have mentioned this already - unless Amazon was monitoring my searches and 'provided' an appropriate advert)

This should probably be moved to the price watch section of the marketplace.

The Pentax Price Watch section would be more appropriate. Links are required in all threads posted here.

The 50-135 mm zoom is priced at 895 EUR in Germany, in fact. Just to point out that has recently started to recalculate the included VAT for shipping to outside Germany, such as Portugal.
