Graphs depicting the price-hike

I see at least two lenses that break the trend, can you spot them too? Prices are in Swedish SEK, images pulled from Any comments?

Spikes probably mean errors in price listing, and the spike @ Xmas 2008 could be due to a sitewide scam where thousand of Swedes lost their money thinking one site could sell everything 25% cheaper than anyone else legally..

SEK 7.33 = USD 1

Wow, some alarming trends there.
Especially the high end glass.
Not welcome news at all.

In consolation we must hope Hoya/Pentax uses increased cash flow from selling these lenses at higher prices to finance development of everything we ask for every day on this Forum.

The graph for the DA*60-250/4 bothered me a little - it appears to start when the lens was announced, but it wasn't sold until nearly two years later. Then I noticed the time scales for other graphs were not the same, as I first assumed.
