Ahoy! Recently I ordered a Tamron 55-200mm Di-II LD from Bristol Cameras (arrived today). I also had another lens on order, but it was back-ordered so cancelled it and found the same a few quid cheaper in stock elsewhere (now ordered with A.N. OTHER). Made a call to Bristol Cameras to thank them for the delivery and to confirm cancellation. The guy who answered the phone basically said "you are lucky, the price for that lens has gone up to £99.00". I baulked at paying £59.00 but ended up shelling out £65.00 + postage because I didn't make my mind up quick enough when I first found the lens. That was 10 days ago. The lens is now £99.00 on BC website. A £34.00 increase in less than a week on the price I paid and a £40.00 increase from the £59.00 price 2 weeks ago. Assuming this trend is being mirrored by all retailers, anyone who is after glass had better get in quick whilst prices might still be affordable if you shop around. And I thought I was a robbers dog!
