B&H's Cyber Monday deals are now live, and they've dropped the price of the DA* 16-50mm by $400 to $896:

This is the lowest it's been in a while!

I get the feeling we are now in a state where the sale prices are around the rate the normal prices should be and the current normal prices are the should never be prices. camelcamelcamel shows an interesting chart on the pricing over the years on this lens specifically:

Similar to the cost of gasoline.. raise the prices from 2 to 5 dollars a gallon.. then when they trickle down to 3 dollars a gallon, you will think it is a great price... yet you are still paying 1 dollar more than you were.

nevertheless - the price is great. you have to keep in mind the inflation, too.
anyone longing for 16-50 - this is the time.
now, let's see what happens to 77/1.8 and 300/4..

No SDM lenses for me ever, not at least with my hard earned money. Good luck for other members though

Does anyone know if this price drop is happening because they're going to update this lens next year, like with the K-3?
