Given asahi man says Japan inventory of the classic FA Limiteds has been entirely pushed out to the regional operating companies / distributors, perhaps PhotoUnivers has exhausted its own inventory of FA Lims and would need to order them from Pentax EU to get more - thus in their individual case you are seeing rational scarcity pricing.
Thanks. That could well be possible ... I was really amazed by the big price deltas since I use them as my pricing "bench marker" for new purchases in France.

All the new Pentax cameras will get this Hello Kitty design. Best regards
asahiman said that it has the Hello Kitty design !!!! I'd rather prefer the 'Winnie the pooh' design, but Hello Kitty is fine

I think that the fact is that the production of FA limited is stopped for a long time. So new FA limited is coming...

Hopefully, more than just FF Ltd's being refreshed. Would be very fun if FA and Macro lenes all got refreshed with new coatings, blades, quick shift, etc.

Yeah, these are precisely the things whose absence to date have prevented me from being a good photographer
