That is a really good price for brand new. I didn't pay much less for mine used.

Well I purchased this lens and it 2.4 certainly is not as fast as it seems, at least my copy. Agreed I got a great deal but F2.4 doesnt mean it takes in as much light. It is not as good(fast) for low light photography as say Sigma F2.8 17-50. My verdict: I'll pass and save that money for a nice zoom

This is good. My kind of humour.

Interestingly, Pentax Australia's (CR Kennedy) price is $A189 which is US$170.

So there is no reason for an Aussie to buy it from the US.

This is a great bargain at this price, and I'm really tempted by LBA once again. But will I really use it when I already have the DA35 Limited?

I have a Sigma 30mm f1.4 so I've agonised over this, too.

Edit - Interesting - a second ago it was 150 dollars, now it's showing 158.

Still a pretty good deal, if anyone doesn't have this lens, you're out of excuses

Edit2 - I just checked now and it's 150 dollars again!

If it doesn't open at that price, just go down to "New from 150" and the first vendor will be 150 dollars and free shipping.
