The Pentax web store has some great sales today. Official Pentax Online Store | Pentax Digital Cameras | Pentax Webstore

The FA 31mm Limited is on sale for 773! smcP FA 31mm f/1.8 Limited (Black) | Pentax Webstore

The D-FA 50mm Macro is 303. smcP D-FA 50mm f2.8 Macro | Pentax Webstore

There are a lot of other lenses on sale as well although the price cuts are not quite as high generally.

I just ordered the 31mm :-)

Ozzies - before you buy from the USA, contact CRK through the Pentax Australia site with the link to the US deal you are considering - they may match the price, and you'll get an Australian warranty. If they don't match the price, you could always order from the States.

You Aussies might also want to hurry up, coz these black friday prices are not gonna last that long. Off topic for RobG, I was saddened to read about cricketer Phil Hughes untimely death dodging Sean Abott's bouncer. At 26, he didnt deserve to die. Vale Phil Hughes

Could not resist the 55-300WR deal. Its one of the suggestions I made several years ago and I just couldn't justify $450ish when my DAL version is such a solid copy. However, with the drop to $260ish and my son's moving up to older soccer leagues that actually continue to play when it rains it seems like a good deal to me. Had the same problem with the FS offer but cleared my cookies and clicked straight through from the order now button and it was added the second time. No tax outside 3 US states too - so no tax for me either. I just wish it were B&H or Adorama.......

If this version is as good a copy as my DAL 55-300 I'll be selling the DAL. I wonder how many DA/DAL55-300s will be on the marketplace after the WR versions ship?

True about the prices. Yes, the cricketing accident was tragic. Also tragic for the bowler Sean Abbott. It's shocked the nation.

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...

Return FA 35mm F2 if you can :-) Otherwise, you might still want to buy FA 31mm later...

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

Just sayin LOL
No question about that. It's more a matter of having already acquired a new K-3, FA77 and DA15
in the past two months. Have to draw the line somewhere...

Ya I was planning on buying one later.
I just tried buying it with paypal to see what happens, but I can't even pay for it from Canada and have it shipped to a USA address. So only way I'd be able to get it, is ask my brother to buy it and pay him back. But he'd think I'm nuts for spending this much on a lens (even though it's discounted so much.) But it's an investment, right? lol. Guess I'll leave it for now...

The Pentax USA Store is the official Ricoh-Pentax outlet. Their prices aren't often competitive but they are now. These items come with a 1 year US warranty from Pentax. You can purchase an additional 2 year extended warranty on camera bodies for $20 that is a steal of a deal. Welcome aboard.

Thanks for posting this!

I was looking at k3 and the 31 and 77 limiteds. Saw the bh/adorama prices.... Not enough discount. Bought 77 used on eBay for 650, but the best 31 price I saw was over 800. So I just ordered from pentax web store. No shipping or tax, for indiana.
At least I know that if I have buyers remorse on either of these I won't be out more than a few dollars.
My wife will hopefully forgive me since these lenses should fit in my pockets and she won't have to carry anything.

As for the k3? It'll just get cheaper later.
