Is Lim 31mm discontinued and new model is coming?

So last month retailers such as B&H, Adorama, local mom and pop shops were selling 31mm around 600-800$. No price is sky rocketed to 1200-1400$. What gives? Is price influenced by Japan earthquake and typhoon, but all Pentax assembly lines are in Vietnam, or is 31mm discontinued and supply is low?
Move if necessary...

Strange thread....Is there the proof of 600 USD price for FA31.
I see FA31 is 900-1100 USD and nothing is changed.
B&H and Adorama sell FA31 for $900 with discount.

Other stores sell for 1080-1100 USD.


Used lenses costs 500-600 USD.

If the stores had any season's discount....But they have such discounts for different lenses sometimes.

If either B&H or Adorama were selling the FA 31 new for $600 i'd have been all over it. As it is a good price used with shipping is around $650 for good condition.

Me too! I jumped on the recent good buy on the FA 77, and I would like to complete my set.
