Geez, I was about to do something constructive tonite when, in typical habit, I had to check the various forums to see if anything happened in the last 6 or so hours.
Good thing I did!
Looks like most Pentax distributors have quietly jacked-up prices on almost all lenses, by huge amounts in many cases!
OTOH, body prices have dropped a bit, and a considerable amount on the 645D.
I managed to find the 2 FA series primes I wanted to get, still available at original prices and quickly dealt another blow to my battered credit card. Doing so is saving me about $350 or more on 2 lenses.
Is this just Pentax trying to make a better profit for their retail partners or is this something they'd do a little in advance of releasing a FF body that would need to use some of that now very much costlier FF-capable glass?
If you have a Pentax habit you need to feed, tonite's a shopping nite.
