Get the 55-300. So compact.

interesting, I hadn't seen that lens come up. Looks like it's a good option. It's significantly heavier than the pentax, almost 200 grams looks like? And more importantly, there aren't any up for sale right now I can see, and my trip is in two weeks thanks for the suggestion though!
dont know about the weight. It fits my k5 perfect. It is a rare lens to find, Mightymike had one (or has one, contact him) for sale for 125 $ canadian.

Good for you. Excellent lens from a known and reliable seller - perfect. You will enjoy the 55-300 because its light, small, and has very solid performance. I find myself choosing it over the 70-200/2.8 on occasion for those reasons.
