My DA*200 fir 799 CAD (about $600 USD). I paid 100$ more for a store demo.

Pentax DA 200mm F2.8 SDM Lens | McBain Camera Canada

On my browser, most of the Pentax lenses are on page 5, and there are ton of really good deals.

I'm looking at this one.

I thought McBain is one of the big camera stores in Alberta.... but the picture of the lens (DA*16-50) does not match the actual lens (DA*50-135) in description. Nonetheless, I have the DA*50-135 lens, it is one of my favourite lens for stage photography and of course, that is a great price.

Haha it is! I've noticed a couple of their photos don't match their product description. I wonder which one is correct!

Saw that and felt the strong pull of LBA Norm! That would be about 410USD to ship to me. Sooooo tempting!
And the Tamron 90mm 2.8DI macro for under 300 shipped! Must resist....

That's equivalent to $615 USD!

Easy to resist though, since it's out of stock.

Is this an annual sale or just a one of? It says clearance in the listing. Are they closing down?

Being in the US, if I buy from Canada, does that make it a grey market lens for me with no warranty?

I wouldn't think that it would be gray market - I think it's the seller you buy it from, not necessarily the country of origin.
Your warranty would probably be through McBain though.. idk - no real clue

Thanks for the quick reply, but in the meantime I found it at photoprice.ca: Warranties: US? Canada? Grey Market?

It looks like even grey market Pentax products are covered by US warranty (if this site is legit)
