Thanks OP. The D-FA 50mm macro at 199$ was a killer deal, but now this one is gone...other good deal there too. Too bad they are clearing their Pentax line-up... Another one dropping Pentax... too bad !
My first DSLR was a Pentax, they make great body/lenses, IMO as good as if not better than mid/high end Canikon bodies. Too bad their marketing dept is just not up to the task to promote them vs Canikon.
But it's the lack of 3rd party lenses/accessories that made me jump ship to the dark side.
