Are you sure about that price?? In that case it's much cheaper in the UK than in Spain (€440, or a whopping $586 after conversion), which would be a first, not just for Pentax gear but for ANY piece of electronics EVER.

There are variations, discount vs. full price retail, etc.

Either way, paying more than $450 US eq. for the DA40 (before tax) and you are being ripped off in my opinion. That lens sells for under 30,000 yen in Japan, about $350 US.
