I know I'm definitely not getting this, far too good to be true, but just in case may be worth jumping on:

We shall see. I've been told that mine is arriving tomorrow!! I will report back. Not a lens I was after but at that price It would be foolish not to. It is sold by Amazon themselves.

That would have been irresistable but now it's marked as out of stock. I wish I'd stumbled over that one in time.
Best regards, John

It was out of stock when I ordered a couple of weeks ago. I thought I'd take a punt. It describes the old version but the picture is the HD model. Difficult to know what is the normal price of a discontinued product. I think Microglobe have some in stock for a price reference.

My son Adam has a prime account and has just placed an order. New or old version, a bargain if they honour it.

Ordered one of these on the 29th of September at 128 thinking it's too good to be true as I am still waiting.

My friend's order went through. It's ~130 in the basket. They charge ~160 and he received one of the Q mount lenses.
That was too good to be true.

Looking at what little technical info is provided, the model number corresponds to the HD 15mm ltd, boxed weight is stated as both 23g and 213g, date first available May 2009 (the HD ltd series was released in 2013 or 2014). In short, it's a confusing mess.

However, it does state 14mm f/4, which doesn't exist for the Q, it states it's "limited edition" and the photo shows the DA ltd. I don't think anyone would have a problem returning it if they receive a Q lens instead.

It's currently #62 in the cameras and photography section, so they're getting a lot of orders for it.
