You could used some well-knwon and trusted places fro used equipment:

- Adorama Used - they have a decent listing of used equipment

- Keh ( - very respected, this site has a record Pentax item on sale right now. They are not the cheapest but do provide a 6 month warranty

- The Pentax Forum marketplace - you may even post a Wanted add to share your interest to buy an used lens, currently listed: some PF members might contact you directly

- the fleabay, especially if you know some well-respected sellers with 100% positive feedback

I would be patient and use the first three as preferred places.

Hope that the comment may help

Edit: has two 20-135mm lenses currently listed (on 14/4/2013) between $665 and $799. Considering that Keh is very, very conservative for their listing and offer a 6 months warranty, I would go for the cheapest. But you may prefer a Like New (LN) listing.

I have purchased most of my lenses off the forum marketplace, but I would also completely trust keh.
