Count me in. I wouldn't contemplate purchasing at anything higher than the Black Friday prices - and not even at those prices for some product.

Even though I'm in Australia, I have purchased from B&H (and would continue to price-shop to consider supporting those sellers who support PF).

Regards, Gary

Pentax! Please lower your lens prices! I would love to purchase more Pentax glass but I can usually only afford third party lenses. I would much rather spend my money with Pentax if I could afford the lenses! Thanks!

I'd love the 60-250 some day, but I can't afford it!

+1 from me. Definitely impacts my ability to purchase Pentax lenses.

I'm in!

Haven't bought any new lenses since then, and actually sold all of the Pentax branded AF lenses I owned because I more or less lost faith in Pentax. The wide range of affordable lenses is one of the biggest things that drew me to Pentax to begin with.

I have completely stopped purchasing Pentax gear since the price increase. Moreover, I have strongly considered selling it all and reverting to Canon. I have a K200D and a K-5, as well as nine Pentax lenses. Number 10 is not going to happen as things stand now.

These UPP prices are ridiculous!! Wake up Pentax!

I am in...there are 2 or 3 Pentax lenses that I buy at the pre-hike prices, which are now completely out of my price range.

Clearly Pentax is playing some kind of game with their pricing strategy and it's the customers who suffer.

I'm on-board. I avoided buying my first new Pentax prime because of UPP. Only after someone "went rogue" on Amazon did I finally pull the trigger.

This pricing you have now is just absurd and keeping many (myself included) from buying your lenses and instead seeking used lenses or buying from third party manufacturers.
If you want my business, something about this pricing policy will have to be changed....

Count me in too. I feel extremely fortunate that I bought DA*16-50 and a DA*60-250 last year for reasonable prices (expensive, yes, but nothing like what they are selling for now).

Prices should go down with age, once tooling and development have been paid off, price should come down while still making a profit. They'd sell a lot more lenses. I want the 17mm-135, and the 11mm-16. I'm a dad with 4 Sons. Pentax is not Nikon and should remember it's roots...
