Pentax DA* availability

Anyone ordering/buying a DA* lens recently? Have you got your lens?

I've ordered a DA* lens through the local distributor and it's already a month of waiting before they sent me a message saying "it's on its way to our warehouse" so am not even sure if they really have it already. Anyone else having difficulty getting a DA* lens lately? Just want to know... if I'm alone with this problem, lol

Christmas sales at realistic prices seem to have depleted stock reserves somewhat.

You missed the holiday sale then, sorry.

Sorry. From what I can gather from the whole thing, if you contact B&H or Adorama and make an order on the phone they are supposed to give you the in-store price which is not subject to Pentax's insane Maximum Assurred Pricing. Many report having gotten lenses for FAR less than the list price online.

The price quoted for me was around $1,317.3.... still waiting for the lens I've been contacting sellers from other Asian countries (e.g. Hong Kong), no luck on stocks there either. I wonder why. Or maybe I'm asking the wrong shops... Or just unlucky.
