Has the 16-50mm star lens been discontinued???

I was talking to a Pentax Dealer (Vistek.ca) and the said the 16-50mm has been discontinued.

Is this true? If so, What Lens are they going to replace that range with?

The DA 16-45mm f/4 has been discontinued. Mistaken perhaps?

the only one who says that is Ricehigh AFAIK, but you can take what he says with a grain of salt; he also says that many other DA lenses are discontinued.

I see that the new 18-135 is "Direct Current (DC) motor supports quick, quiet autofocus operation" Is that different then the SDM focusing system?

After looking at the lens reviews, it seems like the SDM had alot of quality control issues.
