Pentax Lens Price on the drop? =)

DA* 16-50 instant $100 off at B&H...

Pentax SMCP-DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 ED SDM Lens 21650 B&H Photo Video

followed the DA* 50-135 $100 price drop.... are we seeing Pentax lens price going back to a more 'normal' price?

I hope so!

The DA15 is down, as well - just after I bought my copy from B&H, too, at a price that was already reduced!

How much did the DA15 price went down?

hm.... is this price drop a holiday thing (I don't recall last year any Pentax lens price drop during the holiday season) or due to Ricoh adjusting the price?

I know the FA50 is $250 when I bought it 1.5 yrs ago, right before the price went up to a whooping $450.
