Black one saying discontinued on the 31mm now?

Wonder if WEX are no longer going to stock pentax as most of it is on special order now.
Hmmm... I placed my order with them a few hours ago and got confirmation through, so I hope they'll be able to honour it They didn't have stock at the Newcastle store, but they should have it in for me to pick up on Thursday at the 25th Anniversary event - which I'm only really attending so I can drop off my DA*60-250 + HD DA 1.4x converter to part-ex at the pre-agreed trade-in price...

Clicking on the website page for the HD FA31, it reads:

"We no longer sell this product and will not be receiving any new stock. Check below for availability of second-hand units.
Condition New
Availability Discontinued - we can no longer source new stock of this product"


If Wex really is going to stop selling Pentax, that's a huge shame. I wonder what the situation is with SRS...

EDIT: Update - SRS is showing the lens as "Out of stock"...

Maybe you got the last one

I was seriously thinking about offering you a bit more for your 60-250mm if you are open to it ... I sold mine a while back and really miss it.

It seems all of the bigger-name suppliers are "awaiting stock" (or "available to order") for the HD FA31 in black at present, most for the silver too Supply chain issues, or... ? Both SRS and Wex have the silver version in stock... Wex at that crazy discounted price, using the code Kevin posted...

I just tried to use the voucher code on the black 43mm and it gets rejected, so my guess is that the offer's over or it was a mistake that they're in the process of fixing.

They've fixed it. The price shows a GBP 629, but when you click on it there's a discounted price of 566. Take of 180 discount with code PTX-CL-180, and the final price is 386...

My order for the black HD FA31 is indeed going to be fulfilled... I got a call from Wex in Newcastle today, telling me the lens had arrived. I'll go over on Thursday for the 25th Anniversary event and pick it up then. Now I just have to hope it's a decent copy, as it sounds as if they won't be able to swap it out if there's anything wrong with it Still, that seems unduly pessimistic... I'm sure it'll be fine
