Are Pentax lenses cheaper in other countries?


I was wondering if some pentax lenses are less expensive in certain countries? While on vacation I thought it might be a good idea to check out local pawn shops overseas. Any thoughts?

In my personal experience, Pentax lenses in UK and Dubai are expensive than US prices.

With pawn shops you might be lucky. Locals do not always know the 'real' value of a lens. However they might also not have treated the lens properly.
