I'll update this post since it looks like more than just a few changes happened between yesterday and today.

You can always refer to the price charge in the lens DB or lens finder for the latest prices.

Unfortunately the revised price for HD DA 20-40mm F2.8 Limited seems went up to it's original max retail price of $796 both at Adorama and B&H. Only at Amazon the is still same as listed above. Whereas for a long time the price remain stable well below the max retail price. What's the reason? Any idea?

Because they want more money?

I would be a little leery of buying from Amazon simply because the seller you show in the image is not Amazon proper nor are they a 'fulfilled by Amazon' vendor either. So they may/may not have warranty services and you may/may not be getting a grey item.

Deals come and go.

I've updated the post with tonight's pricing. Unfortunately, most of the attractive offers available at the start of the week are gone, but there are still some good deals- such as the DA 40mm for half off.

The best course of action is to go for a deal if you spot something at a really good price. If the price drops further within 30 days, stores like B&H/Adorama/Amazon will usually refund you the difference. On the other hand, once a deal is gone, good luck on talking a retailer in to offering a rebate

Today's price wars are crazy indeed. Don't jump to accuse some of greed, often the reason can be different: I remember how around january i've asked Adorama for a price-match B&H had on the 20-40. They did match it and a day later the price at B&H jumped. The matching (lower) price at Adorama stayed for 2-3 more days though. This is how these things work.

The Silver 20-40 was at the start of August 450$ (+38 tax for having it shipped to NY). It was a very limited stock, though, i think. Because of a limited budged i debated a long time on what to buy, almost choosing the 35 ltd. as a walk around.

Now the long wait before it will be in my hands in Romania, brought by a friend and me geting back from working in Norway.

As soon as i will get it i really plan to put to good use all those "flaws" like the field curvature it has wide open at 20mm which my guess is will be awesome for the 3D effect i'm after, maybe do a non-formal review for this controversial lens, to help eternal irresolutes like me reach a conclusion. But there won't be any brick walls pictures

And after all, how many smaller size, modern options do we have for 2.8 at 20mm today (on APS-C)?
