I've been drooling over a fast zoom lens selection for a month, and the DA 50-135 looked so D__n good. Its gone up $50 from when i first started looking at so i ordered it yesterday from B and H at $799. No more LBA for me this year :-)

Its still at that price, but i get the feeling it won't be for long. get it if you want it - i think.

I bought the 16-50/2.8 for about 890eur last week and now it's 980eur at the same store. 50-135/2.8 was less than 800eur a while ago, now 960eur.
These price increases are quite reasonable, in fact pricing for all the DA Star lenses I think are very reasonable compared to what Canon and Nikon and even Oly are charging. What I thought was a shock was the increase on some of their other lenses such as the 35mm macro limited which increased 55% from $450 to $700 CDN. and the 12-24 which went from about $700 to $1300 - back down to about $1100 now but I think still a bit steep. I would gladly pay $1300 for a DA Star version and perhaps a f/2.8 (or the 11-16 f/2.8 Tokina lens which apparently was based on the 12-24 model.
