429! Bloody hell Bill!
You can't get em secondhand for that now!

I wasn't using Pentax then so thats par for the course but a little galling as I try to save up six big ones!

Yep, lens prices bounce around like something demented.

I got my 55-300 PLM last December for 249 from Amazon (some on here told me I was wrong) Bargain!

I had a used 300mm F4 star a year or so back for 599. Two weeks later brand new ones were 624 or thereabouts. Duh!

I bought the 18 135 WR for 399, a month later a friend got one for 299 Duh!

I got my (excellent) k3 II recently for 699 thanks to SRS honouring a trade in offer they'd made me before the increase to 849 hooray!

I'm waiting on next time the 20 - 40 Ltd is on serious offer and hope it coincides with my having spare dosh! No doubt Black Friday and no doubt dearer than last time round. Sub 500 would be nice though.

The used market of course tries to follow suit thanks to ebay listings.

I'd like to buy at reasonable prices when i want gear and can afford it on a limited budget as an amateur, not when sellers see fit. Silly game isn't it?
