big increase in Pentax lens prices in France
Posted By: Glorfindelrb, 10-12-2015, 07:39 AM

Street prices of Pentax lenses are going crazy in France.

DA* 55/1.4 644€ --> 849€
DA 100WR 473€ --> 599€
DA* 300/4 1009€ --> 1299€
DA 560/5.6 4869€ --> 5499€
FA Ltd 77/1.8 836€ --> 1049€

Even more surprising
DA* 50-135 929€ --> 1199€

Some people, including me were still buying Pentax in France. Is Ricoh asking us to stop ?

Pentax prices are skyrocketing even more in Norway due to the NOK being much weaker even compared to the €. NOK are very oil price dependent and are currently worth very little. Some lenses which i have been watching have increased by more then 50% during a couple of years. I reduced buying from abroad already and probably will wait for higher oil prices and higher NOK value before i buy the Pentax FF.

A weird thing is that used gear also increases because its compared to average prices from pentaxforums lens database ($). That combined with people believing that lens value increases like good wine doesn't help.
