Pentax 50mm 1.4 700.00?

Seriously? I bought this for 180.00 a few months ago on amazon and now they have this listed? Pentax SMCP-FA 50mm f/1.4 Lens: Camera & Photo

Anyone know why its so high?

Well that's not an Amazon sale but rather an associate retailer called All About Electronics. They must be pretty proud of their lens.

If you go to B&H Photo Video | Digital Cameras, Camcorders, they have it listed for $250. I think Amazon just doesn't have it in stock.

It's just plain silly.
Once in a while this happens for some weird reason - somehow I don't think they expect people to click on the 'Buy now' icon...

If I could sell my 50 for that kind of change, I would be selling everything and buying a cheaper Canon or Nikon system....LOL
