Just 3 left.. It says DA and shows DA, not DAL! I went to the Warehouse for a $75 used copy last week

It's a trap!

Very likely the DA L version.

Yeah could be, but for $75 I am fine either way. At $120 I would be ready to complain if a DAL showed up!

But Amazon's new "Will This Work with Your Camera?" says it will not work with my K-5.
I know, I know
Their new gadget needs a lot of work.

My $75 copy is 'lost in shipping' ;-) so Amazon offered me a refund and bonus shipping on another copy. At double the price.. no thanks! I'll hold out a while, ups will probably find it once the trucks are fully emptied of holiday loot. Sure hope so, we had another inch of rain today.. I need WR!!


Glad the new offer was true for others!

Quite bizarre - I just got an e-mail that the lens was returned and funds replenished. So I went online & bought it from the same folks again for the same price, but paid $11 for 2-day shipping. Hopefully they will find us this time.. ;-)

I still don't know if this is DA or DA L but now the k200 will probably get here first!
