I was reading another thread on 28-105 lenses and there was a froogle link there. So after clicking on it, I entered 16-45 and brought up the list, since I am interested in the lense and am watching the price. On it were 3 vendors with the Pentax 16-45/4.0 SMCP-DA ist-D AF Wide Angle Telephoto Zoom Lens for $302, $305 and $307 now with the new $100 rebate from Pentax, that cuts the regular price (of $400) down to $200. Before with the old rebate, the lowest price I could find was $400 bringing the price down to $300 and change. I am starting to get the feeling that some of the retailers actually raise the price when Pentax offers a rebate.

Any way, I clicked on "add to cart" and went to see if that was the price after the rebate - no - it is their selling price, so if your in the market for this lense, this may be your opportunity!





Every one else is up in the regular price range of $380 to $450

Good luck - flying to Cabo San Lucas in a few hours on vacation.....
