I do not think $1000 off is a deal at all :-). It 's a Len pentax uses to show off and not to sell.

It is hard to believe someone want to pay so much high price to an APS-C lens with such a slow aperture.

It is a good lens indeed. Not bad

$5996 is certainly better than $6996!

Somewhere on the Forum recently there was discussion that DA560mm is supposed to drop to $4,000 something in the next couple of months?? At that point I think its a darn good deal for a lens that looks to take good pictures!

$4000 is better still, but it's not $4000 and may not drop that low. We'll have to wait and see.

Price in physical shops have plumeted recently in France. i Saw the 560mm for 3,999€ few days ago in Paris. They were starting to clear inventory for christmas. I think they anticipate new products to come (like the way Canon and Nikon do).

If it dropped to 4k or below, I don't see how it would be easy to pass up. The photos posted here with that lens are some of the best I have seen.
