Re: 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.

I think us200 could be a fair price for an almost recent launched lens. So 50 more it's not too expensive.

That`s one of the reason I keep telling people that FF is not significantly more expensive than ApS-C.

Paying us1500 more for a DSLR and us500 more on lenses, for the crapiest plastic FF gear could be not expensive, just for you maybe.

The fabulous Canon 85mm/F1.8 retails for only $359.

Canon 85 f1.8 have no option to be stabilized, so enjoy it on a bright day condition, only.

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

Then jump, you are free.
