Fake (permanent) Fuji sales on lens?
Here in Canada, the 55-230 has been on 'sale' for the longest time for $299 with a supposed savings of $100. Now I see the 55-200 on sale for $549 with a supposed savings of $200. Some retailers will note it as a sale whereas others list it as a regular price.
Maybe Fuji is feeling the heat from the competition or lack of sales and is starting to lower the prices on their lenses?
I came to the Fuji mirrorless party late and missed out on the big sale (last year?). Knowing what they sold for during the sale, it is tough to pull the trigger on lenses, especially when you even see used on Craigslist selling for more than when they were new on sale.
