A couple of weeks ago I bought the Panasonic 14-140 (new, but unboxed) from Park cameras for £399.99. It seems for once in my life I bought at the right time! By the time I ordered it, it had already gone up to £429.99, but they honoured the lower price. Then a few days later it increased again- to £499.99. I just checked Park's site, and would you believe it's now £599.99! So, why do prices change so much, and so quickly?
