HD DA 55-300mm: $267 deal renewed!
Posted By: Adam, 07-28-2015, 10:40 AM

An additional instant rebate on the popular 55-300mm lens was just posted today:


I'm consolidating this deal so that both stores get exposure.

The "Quote" button is a wonderful device; it allows us to see immediately what you are responding to (otherwise we have to guess, and some of us aren't very reliable at that).
Thank you. I use it most of the time but I guess I forgot to use it here. I apologize for the confusion.

Both deals - while fantastic - come to $304.47 and seem to be $92.48 in savings. Not sure what happened maybe the rebate was slightly less than expected but in any case awesome pricing.

I noticed just now that B&H is now matching Amazon's price - charging $267.11 until 8/16!

If you do, I don't think you'll regret it.

Think Adorama would jump in and match? I got some coupons kicking around for them.

That isn't sold by Amazon tough! which means that it is probably without the warranty. I would pay the $5 difference and get it from Amazon itself or B&H with US warranty.

You could cancel your order and change the seller to Amazon OR better cancel and get it from B&H that way you'll benefit the Forum.

You're welcome. It is easy to cancel your order and get a sold by Amazon lens though. It is better to pay $6 more rather than taking any chances. It is up to you of course but I just want to make it clear that it is available from Amazon itself, in case my previews post wasn't clear.

I have the original DA 55-300 smc and it's been fine. But I have no telephoto lens for Pentax with WR. At this price the purchase makes sense so I just ordered one (via Adam's link to B&H of course). The 150-450 would be great but, at over $2K, that'll never be realistic for me.
