Pentax 35mm f/2.4 $111.53 on Amazon
Posted By: dchriselle, 12-08-2014, 10:15 PM

This item has been cheaper than at B&h and Adorama @ $145USD at Amazon. Today they've lowered the price it's new and I just don't know until when they'll be selling it for this price. It says there;s 11 more in stock. Here's the link:

Snagged one of the last ones at $97. Doubt it can go lower than that. Thanks for the heads up.

I think I read once that this lens projects a full frame image. Is that right?

That is correct, and it's even better than on digital!

Here are some samples on Fuji Reala

Turns out it was too good of a price to be true. I just got an email from AV House stating that their supplier had told them that they had the lens in stock, but it has been discontinued and is no longer available. Rubbish.

They've canceled the order and refunded the money.

I don't buy used lenses unless it comes from a trusted member here. Got burned twice in the past.

I've purchased several items from the Amazon Warehouse and feel they underrate the condition.
Plus, it's an easy return/refund if not as described.

Same here. No problem ordering from Amazon Warehouse deals. My last deal was on a Manfrotto tripod for $61 that was selling new for $189 (had a tiny scratch on one leg).
