Price increase on kit lens

For those of you waiting for a price drop on the K10D when the new bodies are announced may be in for a big disappointment. The kit lens just jumped over $50 in price. Probably because of the soft dollar ( Thanks George). This might be an indication of things to come on all Asian made products. The bodies haven't gone up yet but would not be surprised to see it.

Regards,

Ken

I've only been checking the kits. That is were the jump is. That's what makes me think the bodies might go up.

The kit is $711.99 at Amazon, and it hasn't increased (prices at amazon go up and down all the time though). Where did you see the price increase?

They seem to be the low seller at this point. In the past the kit lens has been very inexpensive when purchased in a kit but now it is $92 more on the K10D and $111 more on the k100D Super.

Or it oculd be that they are just ending the odd situation where for the last few months you could often buy the kit for less than the cost of the body alone.
