I'm not sure what you are referring to, but are you comparing a LTD and DA* lens prices with the FA or DA 35?
I was referring to the post directly above the one you are quoting, where someone was longing for the days when the DA40 was only $300 and the DA*16-50 only $650, and was calling this "much cheaper" than current prices.

Interestingly, the cheapest prime in production is the DA 40mm ltd until the DA 35/2.4 AL comes out. The FA 50/1.4 is a few dollars more than the 40.

it's over a thousand here Marc.
Just did a quick check on prodigital200 - the Canadian dealer that typically offers the lowest prices that I see. DA40 is $399 US, DA*16-50 is $860.

before it was running for $650.
Well, there was a brief time when because of flukes of the exchange rate and distribution channels, Canadian dealers like prodigital2000 could offer prices lower than US even when buying from within the US. I think that situation has reversed itself.
