Pentax Accessories Price Increase

Hello Fellow Pentaxians,

If ever you need to buy accessories for our gear, might as well buy now before it increases by Sept.1. See link below from Pentax JP
Google Translate

There is PDF list of the affected accesories.

In EU i saw some already got pumped prices. For example, P/K-M42 adapter went to about 50 euros. And that is plain ridiculous for a metal ring, my opinion.

Have to wonder how many resellers will jack up prices even though they have old stock sitting on the shelves.

Just got an advice from here. By September 1 accessories will increase aside from the list by Japan. Kindly check your local retail store.

Definitive proof that Pentax is stupid.

Their response to low accessory sales is to RAISE prices?

Perhaps instead they should be looking into availability. People won't buy accessories they can't find... Half of the accessories listed are nearly impossible to find, and those that are findable are priced 2-3 times that of equivalent third-party accessories.
