Re: The price of the new 16-50.....

When the K-5 was launched in 2010 its retail price was $1600. The K-3 III is only $400 more a decade latter. Very similar pricing. Members here bought the K-5 at that price. The only complaint I have is bodies use to come down in price over time. They seem to hold onto close to retail price for years now.

The good, the retail for the DA*16-50mm f/2.8 II is $1400 (USA) that's not much more than the selling price of the old one of around $1000 at B&H today. So your talking $400 more, that's makes it sound like a bargain.
