Yeah, the same here in Chile. The US dolar is way more expensive (over 45%) than a year ago, so I need to hold on until the exchange rate makes a new turn.... Until then no shopping for me

I would certainly tough it out !

The only "weight" is the cost at the present time !

That's interesting. 1,962.98 USD = 2,707.34 AUD, which is only AUD $200 difference from the local price (when I last looked) of AUD $2990. Very comparable.

Well that is $300 less than I paid for mine when Adorama had a temporary price drop a few months ago. I grabbed it for a trip to Yellowstone National Park. As things worked out, because of a variety of family emergencies and work schedule issues, I never got to go.

It is an awesome lens. I don't regret what I paid for it, just not being able to make it out the Yellowstone.

If you are thinking about getting this lens, this is an awesome price for an equally awesome lens.

Hmmm, According to some converter, 1962.98 = 2606 CAD.

Henriy's price... 2749 CAD. I can promise you, import fees and sales tax will eat up the 143 $ you'd save real quick, and you'd end up well on the negative side.

Meanwhile at CameraCanada whom I know absolutely nothing about its on sale for $100 off and virtually the American sale price.
Camera Canada :: Pentax :: HD PENTAX D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6 DC AW Lens

2649 Canadian.

I never really considered it in $/weight. $27.81 per oz.

A downright steal compared to printer ink, ~ $60 per oz.

I noticed today that the lens is now listed at the Pentax Australia web store for AUD $2900 - $90 cheaper than it was at the dcexpert eBay store. The price is creeping downwards locally.
