they're all gone. they had some demo units but those were sold too. basically, the only way you're gonna get one is getting lucky with putting a Want to Buy posting on the forum and seeing if anyone will part with one.

if you do find one, it'll probably be at least $1000, price of a few Tamrons

They turn up on eBay every now and again the Pentax mount is getting scarcer.

The ZK100/2 starts to look like the next option now that the VL125 is closing on its price domain. I'd love to try one personally.

Yes, good point. I've discovered personally though I've often used close-focusing to some degree but almost never a full 1:1, which has become less important to me personally. If its a true macro one wants, definately, the VL125 has that edge however. With the 100/2's special cine focusing system though, I get curious how it would show me things differently than anything else... hmmm.. . but I digress here.
