(Laughing) Yep. Mine's two weeks old. I should offer to purchase my next lens from them after polling everyone's preference for a new lens, then asking for a cut of all the savings that will ensue once I make my purchase and the price subsequently plummets....

We shouldn't really complain about $19 when the price on this guy was very attractive at $399.

I'm still adjusting to it after shooting a lot with a Sigma 105mm 2.8 EX DG since last fall. The Sigma started failing a couple months ago so sent it into C.R.I.S.. Failing/failed main circuit board that is no longer available.

B&H has a policy of refunding the price difference within the 30 day return period under certain circumstances (see below). In fact, last year I got almost $20 back from them after I purchased this same lens for around the same $380 price and the price went further down within a month.

This is a post from the B&H representative in a forum thread in 2014:


Hello;

Our policy is B&H will gladly consider matching an authorized retailer for the same item. We must be able to verify the offer and that the item is available and ready to ship. We cannot honor verbal or phone quotes, coupon codes or any other promotional incentives.

After your purchase during the 30 day return period we can look into a price change, but the provisions for such an accommodation are a little different. Say for example an items price drops; we could possibly honor the price change for your purchase. On the other hand, say an item like the K3 gets an Instant Savings or Rebate both offered by Pentax through its dealers. These promotions usually have a valid date window so it could be your request could not be fulfilled because your purchase date was outside the Rebates purchase window.

Post sale price adjustments are handled on a case by case basis and it’s best to contact our Customer Service Department to have CS Rep look into your request.

In truth, I am not really complaining, I love the lens, and have been pleased with B&H. Just joking about my constant habit of giving in to my lens love at what always seems to be one week short of a price drop....

Any idea how long the price reduction is for? Is it $399 for good now?

On the lens page, in the price box, it says:

It's a bit strange in that is also says, "IN STOCK", but just below that it says, "Arrives Wed 6/15". Who knows? I'd love to place an order, but I leave for vacation on Friday, 6/17 and don't want this to sit on the porch for a week while I'm out of town. I'll wait for the next time it is on sale.

It's $379 until the end of the day today. The price could go up to $399 or higher thereafter, or it can stay on sale. Ball's in their court!
