For those of you brave enough to risk a foreign lens purchase...$1010.74 which is about 821 assuming conversion at 1.23 to US$.

This price apparently is guaranteed to include UK customs and VAT.

I do like the focal length for APS-C...just a shame the OEM Pentax adaptors are so expensive and quite rare.

Manual focus doesn't bother me.

Well spotted...very good indeed.

I was actually browsing the US sites to see what kind of deals they were getting compared to us. The 'Bargain of the Day' I highlighted (using their own tagline) seemed very good compared to the usual price...about $1900 saving for them.

I was quite interested in the HD 70-210 f/4...we are still being asked for about 950 for it whilst in the US excluding any state taxes it is about 570 equivalent. Including delivery, VAT and customs charges we could get it from US for about 765 and the is weak against the $ at the moment as well.

Good catch, LennyBloke.
Be well, stay safe, but most of all, invest in memories
