Samyang 10mm -- Cheap
Posted By: K David, 12-28-2014, 08:55 PM

Amazon search for the Samyang 10mm

Amazon has the Samyang 10mm lenses CHEAP. The Pentax K mount is $293. Sony NEX is $287.

Samyang 10mm in K

Considering that this lens was $500-600 just nine months ago, this was a pretty incredible price drop. A week ago the K was $385, so I don't know if it has the potential to drop even further or if this is the low point and it's about to rebound. As of this post, Amazon only has five of the K mount lenses left (I already ordered mine.)

It may be because you're in Canada (I'd believe this is a U.S.-only deal, perhaps.) But try this: clear your cookies and log out of your browser (and out of Amazon.) Try looking at it again and see if the price is different.

I'm kinda intrigued to buy this simply because of this warning on the Amazon page:

WARNING:
CHOKING HAZARD -- Toy contains a marble. Not for children under 3 yrs.
CHOKING HAZARD -- This toy is a marble. Not for children under 3 yrs.
CHOKING HAZARD -- This toy is a small ball. Not for children under 3 yrs.
CHOKING HAZARD -- Children under 8 yrs. can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Adult supervision required. Keep uninflated balloons from children. Discard broken balloons at once.
CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
CHOKING HAZARD -- Toy contains a small ball. Not for children under 3 yrs.


To be honest that's not a very good price for a small ball or a balloon.

That may be it. I use a VPN with a server in Canada, but can still ship to USA for that price.
