Pentax / Tamron 18 - 250 ?

Sorry I may have missed this but I can't seem to find a new Pentax 18-250 or Tamron 18-250 for sale. I have found plenty in Nikon and Canon mount but not Pentax. Was this lens simply to much competition for the standard kit lens?

I have one and won't be parting with it, I recommended it along with a new KR to my brother in-law as a starter kit. I will be a bit disappointed if I can't find him a new one.

Cheers Ed

Pentax no longer makes the DA18-250. I have read that Tamron has stopped production of their version -- others here may know for sure. I also read of occasional supplies that hit the market. Your brother might search major and minor suppliers online. When I gargle TAMRON 18-250 PENTAX I get hits like this that show some sellers have it in stock. Good luck!

Thanks for that mate but it appears they are all Nikon mount.

Cheers Ed
