Pentax 25mm and 28-45mm price fluctuations

I'm looking into selling my D FA 25mm and when I researched the new cost on one about a week ago at B&H it had dropped to $3700USD or so, now it's back up to $4750 on B&H. I'm not complaining, since I only paid $4K for it used over 2 years ago, but what's the deal?


The 28-45mm also looks like it jumped a couple hundred bucks, back up to $4997 from $4697.

Also, my 645Z and 28-45mm arrived today! It's supposed to be about -20F tomorrow morning in Duluth, MN, so I might give it a cold weather test drive!

I believe that holiday rebates were in effect last month- they've since expired. 3700 for the 25mm sounds like quite a bargain, though!

I was told by Pentax sellers that the factory building the 25mm had closed for some reason.
But it might be difficult to get confirmation...

The Japanese Yen has been devalued. You can also purchase the lenses in Japan at an enormous discount.
I just purchased one for 35% less than B&H!
