pentax 35mm 2.8 limited macro

Anyone know why Amazon's price on this lens just went up + $100?

Hard to say. Maybe a new move by Ricoh to make more money? It is still available on B and H for 569 -- probably while quantities last. Prodigital 2000 has it for about the same price too.

Hopefully that isn't Ricoh's first move (raise lens prices) as the Pentax owner. I checked the DA15 and DA40 and they are still at the same prices.

Amazon just notified me that this lens has went up to $699.95????? I'm like you abacus, hope this isn't their first move!

I said it more jokingly. Ricoh has not had time to make any input into lens or camera body pricing -- that certainly won't come for a few months. Amazon's prices really fluctuate based on stocks that they have of a given product -- what is selling, etc. B and H is a more stable place to buy from -- although I always compare prices from one site to another.

Whatever Ricoh do pricewise can't be worse than Hoya's antics. Wasn't there one lens which tripled in price during their tenure?

Maybe because this is the best DA lens ever!
