DA 35mm F/2.4

Hello knowledgeable people,

I have a question that so far I can't find an answer to on the threads. When the new lens was released, there was speculation that the price would settle somewhere in the 125-150 range. So far its still selling for the list price.

Any thoughts on when the street price of the lens might start dropping? I don't want to pull the trigger at 219.99 only to see it drop by 80 dollars a month later.

It will drop if sales slump. I don't think many people will be able to predict that... but if you have time to wait, you might as well.

I really doubt it will fall below 150, if it gets that low. My estimate would be 170 ish.

it's pretty commonly 199 right now, i can see 170 a year from now (or when some newer lenses come out and sales drop off)

So if we're guessing a year out, its probably ok to buy at this price then. Thanks, I just didn't want to see the price drop just outside of a store's price match window. That's frustrating when that happens.
