Well, it's not like anyone would like the declicked aperture ring, anyway. And it's a cheap brand. And the lenses were ugly. And dumb.

Actually...yes, I would have liked it. While declicked might have been a bit of a pain for some photography, it can be used to great effect with video.

And while it's a cheap brand, the lens optical IQ is pretty good. Go read some reviews.

I wasn't saying what you assumed I said. It's called irony. Maybe this helps.

Ah, wasn't reading 100% of the comments.

Yes, I missed your sarcasm. Usually I'm decent about spotting that. Ah well. Too bad it looks like nobody is getting that deal.

I've had new model camera pre order cancelled by Amazon. (sold by Amazon).  They had a typo or small price error, so after being on back order for weeks, suddenly, I had to go to the back of the line.  I chose to go to the back of the line at Adorama, and had my camera weeks before anyone got one from Amazon.
I've never pre ordered new camera or lens models from Amazon in the 5 years since. B&H and Adorama have always come thru.
I know this was a third party seller, but typos happen and orders get cancelled.

I really think (or at least hope) no one seriously expected to get a €400 lens for less than €90. I for one was buying full well knowing that an error was much more likely than this insane discount. But who knows what happened, so why not take a free gamble if you could do with 14mm FF anyway?

http://www.dealsrunner.com/deals/walimex-pro-24-1-5-objektiv-vdslr-fur-canon-und-adapter-pentax-q


i ordered 3.... :)

Maybe they are selling them out, because nobody buys cinema lenses for Pentax Q....

you have to read it.
it´s a canon EF mount lens with an additional pentax adapter....

the adapter alone goes for 20+ euro.

Yes, that's why the trailing dots, I guess I was too cryptic... whoever posted that maybe didn't realize it's effectively a Canon lens.  Anyway, they fixed  the price.

well... i buy on amazon for years.

i once got a 230 euro gfx card for 80 euro.
another time i got a asus sonar DX card and one day later i got another one.
of course i payed only for one. :)

never heard anything from amazon.
sometimes you can be lucky.

i did not thought it was an discount..i thought it was an error.
but there was a chance that i get it for 88 euro.

i guess the main problem was.. to many have ordered.
and they did not send out the same day.

when they send you the email that they have send the product, you have a valid contract and they can´t cancel.
