Significant price drop Pentax DA560mm F5.6 locally
4 months ago

..locally that is, I don't know about worldwide. Here in the Netherlands however, the price for this lens went from €5699,- to €4269,-

I checked with the camera store that sells it online as well as in their shop, but they do not have it in stock, it's on order, so this is not a sales price or a one time reduction. I got their direct response that this price is correct, and will remain so.

This finally puts the price level of the Pentax DA560 clearly below the price level of the Sigma 500mm f4.5, which sells at €4649,-. On top of that you would get superb AF (if the one and only user here is right and his images show it), WR, a silent focus motor. Hmmmm.....
