Re: DA 16-50 and DA 50-135 prices doubled - It's an outrage

I am a diehard Pentax fan and love the ergonomics of Pentax DSLRs. I already have bought my DA Limited primes and Tamron and Sigma zooms. I recently bought my DA*50-135 because it is a fantastic lens midway between the high and low end prices now they are oscillating every day.

However, I am very displeased with Pentax lens prices yo-yoing up and down. It makes buying a Pentax lens a gamble. For my future I may need one or two more zooms, but most likely they won't be a Pentax.

Sorry, Ricoh-Pentax, you make it very difficult to figure out when is a good time to buy your lenses. Think, think, think, if the diehard fans end up buying third party lenses then what is the point of buying into a Pentax system?
