    Yup! I'm a happy camper today. Yesterday was my first day back in Tokyo after a 6 month stay in Colorado and when I gave Fujiya Camera a call in the morning they had the lens I've been looking for, the 645 A35/3.5! It has a few scratches on the exterior so it was marked down to 27,300 yen ($289) Fortunately the glass looks pretty clean. I traded in my A45/2.8 and a couple other little pieces for a little over $100 and came home with the 35mm for less than $200. Can't wait to take it for a spin with the cherry blossoms as soon as the rain stops!

    Congratulations! The Pentax 35mm is a fantastic lens. I used to use one on a Pentax 645Nll. I'm a small time Ebay seller and I have owned 3 or 4 of these lenses. They all sold in the $400.00 to $500.00 range. You got a great deal!
