It appears that Pentax’s US suggested retail prices on a number of genuine Pentax lenses might be going up again; the table below, based on yesterday’s prices at authorized retailers and the new prices, contains the specifics.  Please note that we’ve rounded all prices for the sake of readability.

These new prices are now reflected on the Adorama, Amazon, and Abe’s of Maine web sites. B&H has not upped their prices as of the time of this posting, so act fast if you’d like to get some savings in before it’s too late!  To the best of our knowledge, this is not a temporary price increase.
