D FA 50mm Macro - $244 at B&H
Posted By: Adam, 12-14-2015, 03:58 PM

This deal deserves its own thread.

Pentax Normal smc P-D FA 50mm f/2.8 Macro Autofocus Lens 21530



I know I'm about to order one, even though it'll be my 20th (or so) 50mm lens. Too good to pass up, especially with the upcoming debut of the FF.

I have 100mm WR macro sitting in the basket already a month at B&H and just can't decide finally to push the button

This must be an all-time low price for this lens. I wonder if a WR D-FA version will appear as part of the K-1 prime lens lineup.

That's insane. If anyone is even thinking they might want this lens someday in their life they should buy it.

The rub for me is the same thing can be said for so many other lenses (and camera) for that matter right now. This would be about #3 for me. My #1 was the DA21 and I bought it already. If I get #2 (the DA15) and this one I will be about $1K in a month and if I go a couple more down the list I will be at $2K in a hurry and on it goes...

Sad that I just spent slightly more than that for my 16-50 repair

I'm now wondering if these prices go up in the Spring and the DA prices go down? I ask that since the FF should (haha SHOULD) be out by then and APS-C will have then taken a backseat from all the FF hype and fanfare.

That is to say, I'm wondering if the DA prices will be similar on the DA35 and the other primes..

I would assume this would be the case; the older K, M, A, F, FA lenses will go up in prices, while the DA lenses will go down or stay the same since they cannot be used on the new FF Pentax.

Also we should sticky the SDM Deactivation instructions so people who have lenses with failed SDM motors don't have to shell out so much money to have them repaired.
