Iíve been watching the price. It goes up and down throughout the day.

As of 8:49am PDT, Sept 23, 2020, itís at $1227 CDN while it normally sits at $1399. I just got mine yesterday at $1291. Sigh.

I think Amazon is applying a funky, targeted, algorithm if there are people like me who are constantly monitoring an item. If the price goes down and someone bites, it goes down even further the next day. I observed the same thing when I bought the 20-40mm a while back.

I am not sure if everyone sees the same price at the same time.

It fluctuates like crazy. Probably back up. They donít do price adjustments so I ordered another one thatís $28 cheaper than the first one I ordered, which I will return.

Canít complain at $509.

Price of silver DA 20-40mm Limited currently at $510 CDN, equivalent to $383 USD, down again. I just picked one up $536. Wonder if Amazon will refund the difference. I guess I can always return and reorder.

For selfish reasons, Iíd prefer they bundle it with the 16-85mm as thatís a lens I donít own, but want at a discount. :-)

Should it be the 16-85mm? Was that lens ever offered as a kit lens?

I donít think the 18-55mm will do the new camera justice.

Thatís cheaper than B&H.

You are a horrible person, tempting me with these deals.

I mean you are an excellent person, tempting me with these deals.

I think Iíll bite even though I donít have a modern APS-C (have K10D, K20D, K-01 and the K-1 II). In anticipation of the K-new...

Yes, I agree with mail-in rebate as likely explanation as I did that with my Fuji lens. Had to send them the UPC label.

I've glossed over that version of the Series 1. Now that I've read the details, sure looks interesting.



I'll see if I can do that this weekend, for you and ChristianRock.

Here is the setup.

---------- Post added 05-04-2020 at 09:27 AM ----------



I have the SMC-A 70-210mm F4. If Iím not too lazy, I can do some comparison shots. But Iím usually too busy with life in general. I also have a Kiron 80-200mm F4, and an old Tokina in the same range.

Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm F2.8-4 (Komine), wide open at 150mm, mounted on Pentax K-1 II. Purple fringing present, easily removed in Lightroom.

SARS-CoV-2 has shut down all of the local community centres. This was taken at one of those places. The parking lot is empty, making it a prime destination for people learning how to drive (and park), and giving the city the opportunity to do repairs without inconveniencing users of the facilities.

Yes! I'm sure you looked up the exchange.

But for those who haven't, it's around $535 USD.

Hi

I donít really follow pricing on the KP, but I see it at $758 CDN at the moment.

Thatís pretty low.
