Just checked prices on Pentax lenses and almost fell off my chair! Glad I bought the DFA 100mm when I did, it is now about $300 more than when I got mine in January 2012. I was seriously considering purchasing the 55mm DA*, but will have to wait at this point. It is now priced at $799. Not sure if this bodes well for us Pentaxians. Probably increases the value of what lenses we do own though.
