At todays rates E2100 is 1876

Interestingly , while we lack a third party alternative, CaNikon have the Sigma 85mm1.4 current price is 899 .

In competition Pentax are offering the Pentax favourite FA77mm1.8 at 687.

Little if anything to be concerned about there, In fact superb choices.

I've received an email from Clifton cameras this morning confirming a launch price of 1999
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

I begin to worry about the new APS-C camera, if I remember correctly the K-3II and the KP were originally around the 1300 mark when new so if they start thinking 2K then Pentaxfolk are going to get a big shock.

The *istD originally came out at 1200-1300 IIRC, with an FA-J 18-35mm lens. The only competitors on launch IIRC were the Canon EOS 10D and Nikon D100; then the EOS300D and D70 came out and broke through the 1000 barrier; those were the days a 1GB card would set you back over 100!!

I bought my *istD for 600 at Mifsuds in early 2005.

As for the 85mm, I will keep with my FA*85 and 77Ltd.
