Interesting. There are some more interesting Pentax items on there as well.
Best regards, John

I see they are also offering a brand new K-7 Body only for 999 which is the same as on their website.

The 540 flash is now 329. Wasn't it over 500 a few months ago?

I fear that the increase to that is imminent... in one of the SRS eBay listings for the 540, it says

Quote:
BUY NOW BEFORE LARGE PRICE INCREASE...

If it says 'large', I bet it will be.

It's plausible, given the way lenses have gone up.

I'm so, SO glad I got my two Samsung 540s when Amazon were doing them for about 180.

Prices have gone beyond a joke. Even a bag for the flash gun is thirty quid.

Barking. Simply barking.

I'm a bit suprised Chris doesn't let people on here know about things like this anymore .. infact can't remember the last time I saw a post from him.

It's also questionable that it is described as "new".

Not really. It's never been sold before, so it's new. It's got a two year guarantee. It's been looked at a few times by people, so it's ex-demo. It's at a price commensurate with this.

All this is perfectly apparent from the description.

Given Chris's exceptional reputation for service, I do think it's a little churlish to attack the description as questionable, given that in every respect, it's perfectly clear.

Really Chris.

"Guideline for describing an item's condition as "new"
An item can be listed as new if it's unused, fully functional and has no signs of damage or wear."

I would have said "Ex demo" was more appropriate.

If it's just that customers have been handling it, and shooting the occasional test frame in the shop, I would still consider that 'unused'. For me 'used' would suggest something considerably more substantial a few dozen people playing with it for 10 minutes each.

What about if those few dozen people playing with it for 10 minutes were extensivly testing the 5.2 fps feature

Haha okay, I suppose there would be a minimum number of actuations I'd be happy with. No more than a few hundred perhaps
