I was in Chelmsford at the weekend and my local Camera World store had a lot of Pentax gear in the window. I don't know if it was 2nd hand, refurbished or just selling cheap but I did notice that they had all the little DA Limited lenses the 21mm, 40mm and 70mm all for around £220 each, they had some other stuff too ( the 14mm F2.8 and some bodies etc ) but I didn't have time to look as I was in a bit of a hurry. They do mail order and part exchange.

None of it was mine by the way but I did have the DA70 once which was lovely.

Just a heads up in case anyone is interested.

If new then the 21 and 70 are a bargain

The ones in the 2nd hand cabinet are cheaper I wasn't talking about new stock on the web site.

Okay, the lenses they had were:

DA70mm @ £220 (Secondhand)
DA40mm @ £150 (Secondhand)
28mm, not sure if an A or M, £30 (Secondhand)
DA14mm @ £340 (Secondhand)
50mm f/2.8 Macro @ £219.99 (Ex-demo)
DA21mm @ £219.99 (Ex-demo)

Various bodies including an *istDS at £150 I think, a K10D at £279 (again, I think).

Didn't try anything out or look at it, just got the prices in case anyone was interested.

Thanks. The 21mm looks very tempting.
