Huge swing in lens prices (currently high)
Aug 31, 2012

Does anyone know the rationale for the huge swing in the price of some lenses? I know in the spring they tried jacking everying in the US up to one price (MSRP), but then prices went down, then back up again, then down, and now they are up again.

For example, I've been wanting to pull the trigger on a DA*50-135 based on everyone's opinions here. Right now they want $1599 for it at Amazon, Adorama or B&H. Last month it was $899. I'm kicking myself for not buying it then, but there is no way I would pay $700 more unless the lens was somehow redesigned and they guaranteed no chance for SDM failure.
