Pentax web store sales
Posted By: Homo_erectus, 11-27-2014, 11:41 AM

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 :-)

Just got a tracking # and an email saying that my 55-300mm is in the hands of the carrier. Invoice and credit card shows correct price and free shipping. Yay!
Same here.

Yes, I agree, when there is a ready competitor willing to bid for a replacement contract if the SLA goes unmet. We don't know that is the case. We don't even know whether there is a Service Level Agreement attached to the RIAC contract - or whether there is a cost-differential for a contract with SLA versus one without SLA. There's just too much we do not and cannot know to make a reasoned statement about who is at fault.
All true. My comment wasn't about assessing blame for this latest problem with the store, but an alternative (admitedly non-responsive) answer to your question about which store would do a better job than the current one. I just don't think these vendor service arrangements work very well unless carefully thought out with respect to protecting your interests. But going from no/weak SLA's (I suspect the state during Hoya years) to SLA's with teeth can't be done overnight. Maybe such was in part the reason for the move from CRIS to Precision.

I should learn to keep quiet when I don't really know what I'm talking about.

Finally the unthinkable has happened...Pentax Web Store has shipped my 55-300 WR copy at last. Checked CC for the correct charge ordered on Nov 27 last year. Lets see how it goes from here....

Someone mentioned in earlier posts that all these lenses could be christmas returns. I highly doubt that. Why? What are the odds that SureSource LLC/Ricoh will receive so many returns for the exact same lens during christmas time? To me it sounds like SureSource indeed received shipment as promised from Ricoh. Hopefully our lenses are new.....

Has anyone recieved a shipping confirmation and tracking info for the FA 31mm yet? The charge on my CC still shows as pending and my order status is still "all backordered."

The pending charge for my 55 - 300 showed up on the 5th, got notice of shipment from UPS on the 6th, got shipping confirmation from the webstore this morning. Oddly, order tracking thru the webstore still shows "all backordered", seems at the PWS, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Why am I not surprised!

FWIW- Regarding whether these are xmas returns, I specifically asked whether my lens would be new or possibly a xmas return. The response I received was " Yes, we only ship new products."

Yes, I received the tracking info. Arriving Thursday.

The store web info is still not changed, and full price on my CC. Going to call them.

Received my 55-300mm WR lens today... I had order on 11/27/14. Here's what it looked like, and it appears brand new to me.. Can't imagine this was any holiday return:

If its as sharp as my DAL 55-300 its a very solid value at that price. The 55-300 doesn't get the respect that it deserves IMHO.
