Scammers - They jacked up the prices and then offer discount.

Retailers feel that buyers are dumb during this time of the year. Most "Sales" are actually not really bargains....

I still like KEH, their prices are good. Particularly, there is an overstock 16-50 for $340. That's the deal of the day for me. The other one is 300mm F4.5 FA* for $520 and DA40 below $200.

That being said,they must not realize we know all the prices of their pentax lenses by heart . The thing I noted is that they sometimes lower the prices after the sale.

edit: I have to agree with others. Don't get the F/FA 28mm F2.8, it used to be $220, is now $240. The 14mm F2.8 went $60 up, you could have one below $400 these days. 10-17mm is a joke, BH Photo has a new one for $20 less with cheaper shipping, same goes for the 17-70mm. Older lenses look ok.

I would write them a message, comparing their prices to new BHPhoto stock.

They use an algorithm to change prices automatically whenever a coupon code is published.

I was debating over a Like new sigma 150-500 for nikon. the price has dropped $100 over the past month plus 25% brought it down to $400.
Cheapest I have seen yet. There are bargains to be had! Like buying anythIng used or new you should be aware of actual market value.

I agree, they have been particularly good about sigma for pentax. I got a 50-150 well below the market price.

The thought should be shop around. And not just in stores, but also when shopping in the marketplace.. a lot of times people high ball their prices and it is a rip off.. check ebay (under sold items) and previous sales to get a feel for second hand pricing.

True, but KEH may always end up being a little higher. You have to pay the techs filtering through the lenses and processing returns back to stock. That's got to be worth something.

But if a lens is $1186 since last few weeks, it should not jump to $1386 just because they have a coupon

I honestly don't believe their techs do much pre-sale filtering. I've gotten 3 lenses from KEH which were clearly defective, but cosmetically excellent.

Anyway, as with everywhere else, it pays to have a general idea about prices, to shop around, and for us to share intelligence with one another.
