Re: Price of K-mount glass?

Hello, All. Thank you for participating in the thread. I started it 15 days ago trying to figure out how Ricoh-Pentax alliance would affect lens prices. It went in slightly different direction as usual. But the question is still there. In the end of February I purchased the DA*60-250/4 for $1199 from B&H + free shipping. Today the free shipping is there, but the price is $1499. However, I think this 25% increase mostly related to stronger yen and Japan tsunami trouble then Pentax buy out. I do look for a couple used lenses and monitor major sites on almost daily basis. I haven't noticed any higher demand or vice versa noticeably more used K-mount lens supply here in US. Has anybody noticed something unusual on lens market these days?
