50-135 price hike in UK??

Recently I have been looking around for some lens (you know LBA and stuff).
Until this weekend the price of DA*50-135/2.8 was relatively moderate ranging from 529 to around 599 depending where you were looking...
To my utter surprise as of yesterday the prices jumped to 919 and up!!! (I checked more suppliers).
I mean please... that's nearly 100% increase, have these people got any common sense???
Now if that's going to happen to other * and ltd lenses, then ordinary peoply like me will be able to purchase only used lenses or the very basic ones... none of which makes me really happy
