Many people paid $600 for that lens. I do not think you will not a lens of the same build quality in 100 macro in any other mount for the same. I really, really want one, but it is just the wrong time.

That's a great deal and from my experience, a great macro lens that is WR! Full frame compatible, too.

The cheapest I've seen it at B&H is $362, and as stated above, it was around $600 at one time, so it's a very good price.

It sold for over $600 USED for a while. New price was over $700 for a long time. Anybody who has a K mount camera (and the $) would be insane to not pick one of these up for any price under $400.

I paid much more than 380USD for mine and don't regret it. Its an amazing lens and has a very fair price. On sales like this.. doubt you would regret it

The hood might be too long for ff
That said I keep the FA version on my K-5 unless I have good reason for another lens.

Yes, it is irresistible

I paid way more for mine, and it is worth it. I would definitely get another if I lost/broke it.

I bought this one at $380, now I got it in my hand. Superb build quality. At $360, they are just giving it away.
I honestly think that it can't go any lower.
