Alright I bit. That was cheaper than I paid back when Pentax had the snafu.

Worst case is you return it. If it is considered defective it will be free return as well.

The seller has 4.9 stars with over 1,400 ratings, so I wouldn't worry, but I must resist.

Funny I see many people trying to sell used copies for more than this.

I had to grab one at that price. I feel kind of sorry for the members in the marketplace trying to get $150+

A quick check on eBay shows that used ones are averaging around $140, some at $130, and some as high as $160.
I have the 40mm XS and don't really need the 35.
But it's hard to resist when you know that you can get most, if not all, your money back on re-sell.

I bought 100/2.8 WR from "another deal site" via amazon and everything was fine but be aware it's grey market and I think mine was Japanese version.

I have the 35 limited, otherwise I'd be all over this deal.

whoa, what a price! I still don't regret buying mine for over 220euro some years ago. Its a great lens. At this price, if you don't already have a 35mm AF prime, you should definitely get it.

Well for all the folks outside the US this isn't the best of deals - Amazon.ca still has it at 200, for example. So there may still be some action in the marketplace, but it will be interesting to see what happens to the prices.
