Pentax A 645 35mm F 3.5 price

I was looking up what a fair price on this lens might be. In the lens section at the top of he page for this lens, it says av. price 484$ at the time that this was compiled (aug 2011), but when I scroll down the page to the price graph, it looks like ~800$ was the rough current price for the same. Any idea why such a difference in the information. As I looked at the graph I would have guessed the av price would have been higher than the price listed in the top of the chart. The data seems to have been compiled and last updated at the same time. Does anyone know what a fair/reasonable price today would be for that lens in exc condition? Thanks Norm

$800 sounds reasonable. Lens prices have gone up!

The price varies a lot, has gone down in the last year, but may well go up again, especially if a 645D2 is announced as is expected later this year.
I bought mine in 2010 for approx. $450. It is well worth the money, even though I'm not using it much as the angle is really wide

I'd say $500-600 in good condition for the manual focus 645 35mm is a fair price. You might be able to find a better price if you shop around a while, especially with a private seller. has one in 'bargain' condition for $415, which should function perfectly well, though may have some dings and such on the outside (though the glass should be fine).
