43mm Limited Silver

Are these still available new in silver. I can't seem to locate one. If not, when was it discontinued?

NEW PENTAX smc FA 43mm f1.9 LIMITED SILVER LENS K-7 K20 - eBay (item 310289289654 end time Feb-17-11 15:46:49 PST)

The price seems a little high and it comes from Canada which might affect warranty coverage.

I was recently hunting for a new 43mm f1.9 in Vancouver and yes it looks like its black only now. Any silver ones for sale that are new could just be "new old stock".

I ended up finding a gently used silver 43mm f1.9 at a local camera store that I bought.

Well, they are bringing silver 40 out now, so in a way it would make sense to "eliminate" the concurrence...
Just a thought though...

Bought one just weeks ago, the local re6tail outlet had to get it from the importer so I suppose they are still out there.

The Pentax web site only shows black and so does B&H Photo. I guess some stores will have silver ones available until their current stock runs out.

Also all the stores I checked in Vancouver only had black as well.

Henrys will ship to you. I live a 3 hour drive from their closest store. Most of my business with them is mail order.
