Are USA Pentax lens prices back to how they were before

I see The DA* 16-50 for $879 and the 60-250 for $1249 at B&H, weren't they increased to some stupid amounts not too long ago?

Yup, until Pentax realized that nobody was willing to pay those prices. Seriously, during June and most of July, all we saw being sold at B&H were Sigma and Tamron lenses!

I'm guess Sigma and Tamron thank them for the extra business...

It is almost as if Ricoh WANTS Pentax to fail...

Arghhh! I am so mad! Now that my birthday is coming up this October 1st, I put that as my want list. Now that it went up in price, nobody will ever buy that for me at that price. Stupid Pentax... If only it were as cheap as Sony's 16-50 f2.8, only at $750 and fully weather-sealed too.

If your family buys you 750 dollar lenses as gifts.. will they temporarily claim ME?

I hope this crazy Pentax USA pricing disease never reaches Australian shores.

(Actually, under resale price maintenance laws, it probably couldn't, thankfully).

I was set to buy the DA 55mm when I saw a rebate coming, not at the new inceased price with a rebate.
