New k-5 owner searching for lens

I recently bought the k-5 and I wanted to buy the Pentax DA* 60-250mm F4 lens at the same time before the price increase but I was unable. Does anyone know where I could get it for around $1200 or close to the price it was a few weeks ago? Thanks.

You might be able to buy a used one here in the Marketplace section. If no one currently has one for sale, you can post a Wanted ad.

Most places that I've looked at have raised their prices to meet the ones set by Pentax, here is the cheapest new one I could find (it is on Ebay) ---> NEW smc Pentax DA* 60-250mm F4 ED SDM LENS K20D/K-7/K-5 (0027075141247) | eBay

Thanks I'll check the marketplace and if I don't find one I'll post a wanted ad. Where exactly do I post the want ad? Sorry I'm new to this.

Thanks again, I actually just double checked ebay after looking at the listing you suggested and found LINK. It seems like a good deal and thanks again for your help!
