Isn`t it too expensive at the regular price?

Besides large-volume scale economies, I never understood why this lens in Pentax line is so expensive.  The equivalent EF Canon version for full frame retails a prices around $100 (EF 50mm F1.8).  That`s one of the reason I keep telling people that FF is not significantly more expensive than ApS-C.  The fabulous Canon 85mm/F1.8 retails for only $359.

Given the clear advantages of FF systems, I didn`t see anymore a reason to continue putting my faith on Pentax.
