Price drop, in my country.
Is this a recent occurrence? I hope it will propagate in my country... not that I plan to buy this lens soon.

It looks like the added wait was worth the results. Appears to be a very sharp lens at all focal lengths.

Nope,maybe this would be to extreme.
And with the K-1 is it not a problem anymore.
Sad for the APS-C user maybe,but not a real problem.
The combination K-1 + 70-200 is outstanding 😁👍

This pic is taken almost one year ago. With a pre product version of the lens. Its bloody amazing!!! Even at a dark metal concert, the focus was waaaaay better on a K-3 then any other lens.
