Yet another follow-up. Today, July 4th in "the old US of A," B&H is listing the DA*60-250 for $1399.95! (Down $400 from the other day, and from the MSRP!)



Still more than I paid up here in Canadialand, but kind of nuts the way this "unified pricing" swings like a pendulum in the states!

In Canada:

In the US:

$1469 at Amazon through an affiliate

US Unified Pricing is the Bomb!

Prodigital2000 is a Canadian company - I doubt they have anything to do with July 4th

I think he was referring to the B&H huge price drop yesterday. They are in NYC.

Good catch - almost down to the pre April 1st price that I paid.

I guess if you are in the market for a new Pentax lens, you really have to wait and watch and be ready to pull the trigger when the time comes.

I was, and Prodigital has actually raised their prices thanks to the UPP. they used to be cheaper. Still are many times. they are the only one I would buy from since i like getting the canadian warranty and avoiding taxes is impossible here anyway

Interestingly the Pentax Japan Shop has them in the Outlet ???/???????????? | PENTAX RICOH IMAGING) for $1549 (123900 yen). So, with shipping from Japan (if they would, which they won't), it would be around $400 less than the magic $1999 mandated price in the US.

the Pentax japan price is what i would imagine should be the high side (1549-1599) with sale prices (ie instant rebates) at 1299
While i see the need for a UPP some of the pricing structure need tweaking, which seems to be happening a bit now. Ultimately it needs to be resolved by october in time for the November December peak ( at least half the years sales will come from that period)

A bit off topic, but I noticed the DA* 300 is $1199 today at B&H also.

I agree with the need to tweak prices. Sales appear to have tanked pretty much across the range and if they want to salvage anything for the 2 month sales peak they need to really get things together by mid-October as you said.
