Pentax 16-45mm for $300 at Amazon
Posted By: sscharf, 05-01-2010, 10:02 PM

I just purchased a used copy of this lens through the marketplace here. Now I just have to wait for the truck to pull up to the house!

So I was surfing the web tonight, and it looks like has this lens on sale for about half price - $300.47 shipped. Probably no sales tax where I live. What a smokin' deal.

It makes my used purchase look less good

Here it is: Pentax 16-45mm f/4.0 SMC PDA ED AL Zoom Lens for Pentax and Samsung Digital SLR Cameras: Camera & Photo

Wow, wild ride on that price.

Kind of like the stock market, just moving in the opposite direction

Oh, well, just trying to help people spend their extra bucks.

No, for that week, it was down to $309; I ended up not pulling the trigger either...

It's a good sign of the trend of the Pentax lens prices.

I paid $325 net @ tri-state

Bing paid a portion of that - felt pretty good until I found this thread! Ah well, the $740 (net) K-7 I grabbed overnight makes up for it! I'm sucking up bargains, now need to nab a 50 prime to fit between the 16-45 and Sigma 55-200 ($80 new/openbox) that are competing for space on my refurb k100d.
