Posted By: kevinfox203, 11-27-2014, 07:42 PM

Happy Thanksgiving

Has anyone found good BF deals in Canada on Pentax lenses? I've got a K5 11s on route from Adorama and hoping to find a good price on 70mm 2.4 and 18-135mm..

EDIT
I found a few nice deals from Lens and Shutter in Vancouver: No doubt limited quantities so act fast

FA 50mm f1.4 $225 CAD

Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC HSM $300 CAD

Some great deals but nothing I want

Cheers!

A site that I find is a good place to start is Photography, Digital Camera, Lens Price Comparisons for Canada - photoprice.ca . Mind you it doesn't list the ebay store vendors like prodigital2000 etc.

+1 for photoprice.ca
They do actually list prodigital2000
Example: Pentax K-50 - Canada and Cross-Border Price Comparison - photoprice.ca
But they don't have other ones like ... i think it was called quickndone or something like that.
And they don't have London Drugs, which is another site to check out.

Yes, but you have to dig a little using photoprice. i.e. the Pentax HD Da 20-40 shows Pentax HD DA 20-40mm f/2.8-4 ED Limited - Canada and Cross-Border Price Comparison - photoprice.ca , but if you do a little mining on the Camera Canada website you can find, the silver version @ Camera Canada :: Pentax :: HD DA 20-40mm f/2.8-4 ED Limited DC WR Lens SIL in stock for $50 cheaper. Maybe one of the websites isn't current. Who knows?

Frankly, my head hurts from all the price checking tonight. Screw it! I'm not buying anything, and save some money! Hahaha.

Gosselin photo list the K-3 for 900, the Sigma 610 flash for 130$, the Sigma 70-200 with a 150$ rebate (I think), great deals on bags and tripods (mostly in-line with Amazon). Canon gear is heavily discounted too.

Nice

Great price for that sigma 8-16mm at Lens and shutter. Looks like it sold out.

Another nice deal I noticed was the DA 16-45mm F4 for $200. Looks like it's gone too. Seems to sell for around $250 used on Ebay.

I didn't know about anything about it, but looks like it's a nice lens for the price.

Lens and Shutter has some old stock of Pentax K mount equipment. I've bought some lenses there, including the Sigma 8-16mm. Someone got lucky and bought the last Sigma 8-16 so they told me. If anyone has any interest they should check the website as they said that they're not sure if they're bringing in anymore Pentax equipment.

Now showing $215 for me. This is a great deal! (But I'm kinda tapped out...)

Be careful on this one! The photo shows the new Contemporary lens, but the name (30mm F/1.4 EX DC) I believe denotes rather the older screw-driven 30mm. If it's the contemporary version, that's also one great deal...

I got the 8-16mm thanks to Kevin's post on RFD (thanks!!) Can't wait to try it out.

Still lots of goodies there at half price - B+W circular polarizers, some quality tripods, both the 540FGZ and 360FGZ Pentax flashes, etc.

Oh is there a post on RFD too? I didn't bother getting the 8-16mm because I've been spending too much. And have similar lenses. Got the DA 16-45mm F4. They shipped it right away.

They have this filter for $250cad. It's $650usd at adorama. You'd need the holder too.

They've now updated the photo on this one to make it clear that it's not the new Contemporary lens. Still a very good deal though - I paid the same amount for a used copy!

They also have the Pentax 160AF macro ring flash for 300$, a ludicrous price. I resisted temptation, but others might not want to.
