Cannot resist the FA 31mm sale... Pulled the trigger... I had skipped many used around $600-$650 on ebay but $773 new is really a good deal.

When I saw the prices, I immediately looked here for a thread on it. Didn't see one so I posted.

I had no idea there's been so much trouble with the Pentax online store. Here's hoping we all get our orders at the prices we ordered lol

I hope all goes well since I've just ordered the 31 limited. I also received free shipping & handling for signing up for the newsletter.
Sweet deal, Thanks Homo_erectus!

How did you get the free shipping? I check off the box to receive the newsletter but it doesn't kill the standard shipping cost.

Try it again or use another browser... I followed this tip and it works.

Sorry, I thought it would work for everyone. I just followed the directions and it said to sign up and the free shipping would calculate when I spent $99 or more. Perhaps, it worked since I was a new customer? I did make sure I didn't navigate away from the site before I finished the deal.

I was trying with firefox and it didn't work (I wasn't getting the pop-up, nor a message that says a pop-up was blocked). Does work with internet explorer though.

For the free shipping, you have to add the item to your cart by clicking on the "buy it now" button. Then simply close the browser page you're taken to. Instead of closing the page, a window will then pop up saying you can get free shipping on an item over $99.00.

Me neither! I placed my order via Paypal 2 hours ago and it hasn't been confirmed by Ricoh yet...if this doesn't go through I won't know whether to rejoice for my wallet or cry for my LBA.

check this out (and he's sold two!) NEW PENTAX SMC FA 77mm F1.8 Limited Lens 1 Year Warranty - BLACK | eBay

certainly makes the Pentax Web store prices look tempting

It's a holiday so it doesn't surprise me that no one is there to confirm it and finish the processing. In the past, during holidays, it has take up to 5 days (Thursday to Monday) to get a confirmation. Pentax Online Store is definitely NOT B&H or Adorama. But that price is terrific, hope you all enjoy your new lenses.

That is a great deal. And another nasty temptation. I managed to stave off the 31 on sale at KEH last week.
Can I do it again?

I ONLY WANT THE FA31, I DON't NEED IT...I ONLY WANT THE FA31, I DON't NEED IT...
I ONLY WANT THE FA31, I DON't NEED IT...

But if you get it you will love it. You will really really really love it. A lot.

Just sayin LOL

Ok so I gave in to the temptation. HD 55-300mm WR is on its way. Would've even paid the full price US$450 for a faster, in-lens DC motor (not the failure-king SDM lenses) 55-300mm WR unit. But the current deal is too good to pass up. After 7 years in pentax-land, I now have a complete weather-sealed APSC camera kit all the way from 18-300 mm (is that the farthest you can go with weather sealing? ).Sadly its not gonna make me a good photographer though.Just imaginary peace of mind and bragging rights in my CaNikony friend circle....

I got a confirmation email within a few minutes of placing my order but I did not pay via paypal so maybe that's what's causing the delay JibbaJab?

I too received confirmation within minutes of placing the order. I've also saved the receipt as PDF just in case Pentax Web Store reneges like they've done before. Paid using my credit card.
