DA* 16-50 for $646.95
Posted By: clickclick, 12-15-2018, 07:24 AM

Looking through the history, I think this might be about as low as this ever shows up for. For those who've thought about it but held back due to mixed reviews, I'd say go for it. It took 3 tries on mine, but the 3rd one has been great. Thanks to B&H's great customer service, swapping them out to get a good copy wasn't an issue. Here's a link to B&H - think Adorama has the same price going if you prefer them:

Indeed, it looks like some of the prices currently live are breaking historical records left and right!

It's a good thing I already own a lot of these lenses, or I'd be going nuts trying to figure out how to take advantage of all these deals!

Thanks for the catch - eyes must have crossed when looking at the price finder pop-up.

Can't resist the temptation this time, ordered one from Amazon while the shipping cost is cheaper towards Hong Kong, plan to be ship by Jan but i am not in a hurry, just right timing for my birthday gift Jan 19

Fortunately no more K1 lens kit on sales again, otherwise i will sell my organ
