I kinda expected them to be a little higher after seeing what the FA* lenses cost...

Nice to see some more particulars about the lenses. Now I need to decide what I really want/need out of the ones offered. Decisions, decisions! I think I'll wait until the 60-250 comes out and then decide between it and the 50-135 (unless someone gives me the winning lottery numbers, I can only afford one this year). While I'd like the 16-50, I wouldn't use it enough to justify the extra cost (and my kit lens does a good enough job when I add in the 50mm 1.7). I'm more tempted by the DA 10-17.

Compared to the L lenses from canon they're not thát expensive...especially considering they're up there with the quality level of the FA* or even limited lenses.

Compared to my wallet though, they cost a fortune
