That's a real deal, if I didn't have the DA* 16-50 already, I would have grab that right away.... I wish that guy has either DA*300/200 or 60-250 to sell at cheap price.

Just what I'm looking for! Ships only to Canada? - I can't tell. 8 personnes suivant l'object. - Does that mean somebody is watching? Anybody speak French? Yes, if the lens is good, that is a good deal. I'm not even sure I would know how to go about this

It ships worldwide but I could not get a shipping cost - said my (US) zip code was invalid. 580 CAD is $533.09 at the moment, but there are no bids so maybe could be had for less. Google translated the text to:
"Smc Pentax lens 16-50 da star 2.8
In perfect condition
used only 2 months indoors studio
very clean
due to the sale, new camera of another brand then is no longer compatible on my new camera.
made your offers!"

tempting, but this is the thing with prices - put it too low for an item, that regularly goes for a higher amount, and it raises suspicions

Well, we will see, as I just pressed "Buy It Now", and PayPal has indicated I cannot pay until I get the shipping cost from the seller, so I sent the email requested through them.
I noted that when I clicked on the link above, it took me to the eBay.ca site, which did not, as best I could tell, have the eBay "Money Back Guarantee". So, I copied the eBay #, searched for it on the U.S. eBay site, and it came up with the money back guarantee, so I bought it (I think). Hopefully, this will provide protection in case it is defective or does not arrive.

When I see deals like this, I follow my intuition... and so far, I haven't had bad experiences...
