the only problem with this lens is it makes you want 60MP.

I'd have to sell off some gear to afford it even at that price. Still waiting to see the 85* from the roadmap

I would assume so. In one of the pictures, it has the Ricoh Imaging USA Warranty paper under the hood.

Arlington has always seemed to be a legit B&M US dealer. I pretty much always have to sell off something to afford new gear. The DFA 50 is heavy but it is clearly aiming for top quality and points the way to future Pentax lenses. Hopefully sooner than later.

This retailer is reputable (if the eBay seller is indeed the same as the store). Arlington is where we ordered the K-1's for last year's giveaway.

I'm surprised that nobody has snagged this lens yet. I'm tempted...
