Pentax DA* 60-250 MM Price drop?

With the new FF just around the corner, do you fellow Pentaxians foresee the price of the 60-250 coming down further. I am very happy with my K-3 and have the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, DFA 50 f/1.4, Pentax 100mm WR f/2.8 Macro and the DA* 50-135 f/2.8 - Not a lot of lenses but good enough for me minus a tele zoom. The 60-250 f/4 would sure complete my lens lineup. I don't do a lot of wide angle shooting hence the absence of a wide lens. Just curious about the thoughts of forum members

It's been on sale for the past several months in the US. The current price is $930 at B&H, with the MSRP being $1299.

No one knows of course, but IMHO there will not be much if any correlation between APS-C lens prices and the FF. Why would there be? Just because Pentax brings out a FF camera does not mean everyone is going to quit buying APS-C cameras. In fact, if the FF is a success and leads to more market presence for Pentax the price of APS-C gear might actually go up.

That's a great price - no wonder used prices took a hit.

Also remember that the 60-250 will almost certainly work as s FF lens on the FF. It is not too bad on the Sony few.

Unfortunately, not without bad vignetting at the tele end.





see sample shots using the DA 60-250 with 35 mm film.
