I have to say i'm very underwhelmed by these 'deals'. Most prices now are substantially more expensive
than they have been earlier in the year.

55-300WR Deal price...249...was 199 a few months ago.

D-FA 100 f2.8 macro Deal Price ...399...was 249 a few months ago

16-85WR Deal price...454...was 349 a few months ago.

So no, I won't be falling over myself to get one quick before the offer ends in a few days. On top of this i'm still waiting for cashback from Jul/August last year! Nearly 10 months now without resolution.

I don't like the way Ricoh/Pentax is being run at the moment.

Sterling exchange rate has weakened over the past few months. Probably limits the scope for deals.

200 for the 55-300, 250 for the WR macro and 350 for the 16-85 are amazing prices thought. I've never seen any prices like that, not even close, in the Netherlands.

Just picked up a DA* 200mm for 599 from Jessops (mail order only) but oddly, the lens disappeared from their website literally minutes after I ordered it earlier today, and soon after from camerapricebuster where I first discovered it, never seen that happen before and wondered if they'd cancel but no, I've had a delivery email now.

Strange, but thought I would mention it in case it's a temporary glitch.

About one month ago I noticed that SRS were selling the KS2 for 339, it's now 399 probably because of the exchange rate. There's no great rush, I can wait for prices to go down again.
