Where to but DA*300mm

Anyone know where to by one from an online retailer. I don't wanna go the eBay route, I want an authorized retailer if at all possible. I have looked but I cannot find one.

Found one!

Item Detail - PX0788 - DA 300mm f/4ED(IF) SDM Lens
At Calumet Photo (which, I believe, is located in Chicago? or am misplacing it with something..)

21760 Pentax DA 300mm f/4.0 ED (IF) SDM Auto Focus Lens with Hood - U.S.A.
At Adorama (which, I believe, is located in New York.) Adorama also has the rebate specials where you can get the FA 50/1.4 for $144 and the af360fgz for $150ish as well. And I believe a $100 rebate on your lens. BUT you have to be a photography student or photography teacher to take advantage of that!

oh, and...

And,
Pentax SMC P-DA* 300/4.0 ED IF SDM TELEPHOTO LENS FOR DIGITAL SLRS (77MM), Pentax SMC PDA*, 21760
from Tri-State. But I'd buy from Adorama and Calumet over Tri-State.
But as a matter of fact, Tri-State has the A*300/2.8 AND FA*300/2.8, both for 4,400ish, new!

I thought they'd be less expensive down south From what I understand they're around the same price in Canada, possibly even less.

I had the chance to look at one today, however it had just been sold. So I couldn't test it

I could find the price from my local store on Monday if you'd like Buddha, he doesn't have any in stock at the moment. However he tests any lens before shipping, and you'll often save a fair amount through taxes.

I still feel that you should buy local if theres a decent store close by
