Nice! Also, all you should need to do is contact customer service for a refund of the difference.

I can do that? Isn't it unfair to the store?

They have a 30-day price guarantee as part of their store policy, because you could technically return the lens and buy it again at a cheaper price. Saves everyone the hassle

I want this lens. I also want a K-3II or the upcoming APS-C flagship. Pentax should really think about bundling this lens with their APS-C flagship cameras. They could sell the kits for +-$1,200. Kill 2 birds with one shot.

I contacted them and they refund without any issue, the extra money goes for the filter.
Thank you again

It is a great lens to me, I saw many bundle with K3II and 16-85 in eBay from 1300, mostly from Japan.
Didn't see any bundle with 16-85 in B&H, Adorama.

B&H's offer is gone, but Amazon still has this lens for $499. 6 copies left:

There are a TON of those 'contact before ordering' with low prices throughout Amazon. They are hacked accounts looking to scam you. Avoid each and every one of them.

I am going to report this seller, at least I can stop a possible victim...and alarm the owner of the account if hacked.
