I envy you these prices. Here in Europe everything costs much more, way beyond just VAT added. Now if only I could get a lens to EU for this price...

It seems Pentax reduced the MRP in the US to approx. those before the april 2012 when they were almost doubled. The % discount on this page is no longer correct.
Encouraging to see and more down to Earth (note high quality similar 3rd party options that could be sold much cheaper by the respective companies whilst still making a profit)

I'm buying the new K1. However, I plan on keeping my K20D, K-5 & K3ll as I have a ton of lenses for them. I've been wanting to get the DA* 60-250mm F4, but I also want to get the new 70-200mm 2.8. The 70-200 is more than twice the price, so I wondering if I could get some thoughts from the group if you were making this choice.

Hi, not sure if Adam plans on moving this discussion - may be better for the Lens forum:


A few things to consider:
1. I just checked B&H and the 70-200 will be more like 3x the price of the 60-250.
2. The 60-250 on your APS-C will have a reach x1.5 so it would be more like a 90-375 (in comp to the 70-200 on the FF)...this is quite a difference for you to consider.
3. The 70-200 f2.8 should be an amazing low light, indoor, etc lens on the K1 - this will be quite different from the 60-250 F4 on the crop cameras.




I like your thought provoking ? - I am trying to figure out my next lens purchases too!


Good luck and I hope this helps,

Though indeed this is not the place for debating,
Mr. glee, i think it all comes down to what you will be photographing mostly (and where - outdoors or indoors, artificial lit sports arena). You probably already considered this but, what will you be needing it for (if it's fast action, like sports, or birds in flight, subjects that are in fast movement, then the more light can get to the sensor, the better so the 2.8 would be more advisable - you won't be forced to push the ISO so high and you'll be able to use faster shutter speeds).

If the subjects are not that fast moving, or for landscapes (yes i would use such a lens for landscape details), i would go for the 60-250, and still have tons $$ to spare.

edit: (regarding the 60-250 on the K-1) see from min 3:20 https://www.pentaxforums.com/articles/review-news/hands-on-with-the-pentax-k-1.html

That FA*31 is quite a nice deal from B&H.

And the DA*60-250 is looking real attractive...

Looking at B&H prices today, it looks like a number of these prices have gone up--sometimes around $50 to $100, in other cases (the FA 31) much more than that. Maybe overstocks from last November/December have been sold down....

At B&H the price on the 150-450 is even lower at $1649.79 USD. I never anticipated that when I got mine at only 9% below list.

K 3-II is down to $727 too

Many lenses has gone up in price in the meantime, some of them significantly. The 16-85mm is now 100 USD more, 16-50mm 130 USD more, 50-135mm 314 USD more and 31mm 380(!) USD more. It seems the low prices are gone and we have to wait for better deals (hopefuly not until Black Friday).
