Yeah, right up until the time the other dealer needs an inventory adjustment. How long did the prices change, 6 days?

And Adorama sent the gift box.
I guess the Ador cookies aren't up to spec. Maybe they are de-centered or have some SDM issues.

A July 5 update... Prices are back down again at Amazon and B&H. Let the roller coaster continue...

16-50 priced even lower than the last time ($1000 vs $1100), otherwise looks the same as the last price drop.

I agree.

Also, I spot-checked a couple of the lenses at Adorama, and the prices were not reduced.

Also (again!), for countries outside of the USA which also experienced lens price increases, has there been any drop?

That is why I won't purchase during the high price shifts.

But you need to in order to help save Pentax-Ricoh and get them into Target and other fine B&M outlets!

Seriously, it's been rather amusing watching the gyrations of prices with Maximum Assured Pricing in place these past few months.

It would be more amusing if I wasn't heavily 'invested' in Pentax. It'd be less amusing if I was planning on becoming more invested in Pentax. Of course the people who it affects could just go to another brand anyway.

All I have to say is that if you are heavily invested, as am I, then - Tamron, Sigma, Tokina, and Used.

All 3 DA* zooms are down even more now.

The 16-50 and 50-135 are down to $900.

The 60-250 is down to $1250, even lower than it was before the original April price increase!

Yup. I'm actually all set, lens-wise, though. The only lenses I'd buy if I won the lottery would be the 31 and 77... but I'd really prefer the 77 stop the PF first.

honestly, I think that is the fair price for these three lens.
16-50 could be down to $800 consider sony 16-50 is $800
