Camera & lens reviews update on prices

I have noticed on some reviews that the price stated does not reflect current prices as some reviews are quite old. I think it would be possible to weight older prices when averaging them to give a better current price indication. I also noticed when I posted a review of a DA35 limited that one review mentioned that this lens was built of plastic.I'm sure this is not the only misplaced review.I think it was for a DA35 f2.4.

Are you referring to the review by Bramela? That looks like a typo to me- no plastic on the lens that I know of! As far as the prices go, you will have to look at the dates to figure out the price trend, later on what I can do is add a nice chart feature showing how it's changed over time.

Possibly a separate new and used price would also be more accurate?

In any case you've got to read the reviews- the average price figure should be taken at face value.
