Was browsing for good deal and came across this listing here

My eyes playing trick on me or is there an error? A SDM lens going for $150, damn cheap. Also check there is no mention of pre-order, stock will be available on 17 Nov!

their standard pre-order deposit is $150. Thus my guess that this is the preorder deposit.

Just call Ronald and check, I'm sure not so cheap.

you can buy K-r and K-5 for $150 as well... hurry and good luck... :bsmilie:
The only difference is that for the K-r and K-5 going for $150, it's stated very clearly that the $150 is the deposit for a PRE-ORDER and there is no shipment date, but for the DA* 50-135mm, there is no mentioned of pre-order and the date for the shipment is stated as well.

Most probably, emjay ****-up on the listing in their hurry to put up another good product.

jokes aside, do they realise that if a customer decides to kick up a fuss, they will have to honour the deal? :sweat:

reminds me of the story published in the newspaper where this lady took nokia to small claims tribunal over a faulty phone she bought that nokia refused to refund, won the case and enforced the judgement with a writ of seizure :bigeyes:

if the price is so low as to arouse suspicions of a mistake, and the buyer tries to snap up many pieces, won't be honoured :)

It is the pre-order price :) If I recall correctly DELL did a mistake few years back on one of their 17" or 19" LCD monitor, cheaper by about 200-300 bucks as they misplaced with other model. Some people did ordered and get it ;p
