Best online price(USA) for DA16-45mm?

I am looking to replace my 18-55 kit lens. Best I could find new is Adorama for $339 no tax for me and free shipping. Anyone know of anything better?

Hard to beat that price Prodigital2000 DA16-45 includes a filter , but I think you have to add another $18.00 for shipping and not sure what the quality of the filter is.

At least in the U.S., $339 is the best price, from some checking I did among reputable shops. If you have your heart set on getting a new one, as opposed to picking up a used one on the Marketplace, then with the free shipping, Adorama is the way to go.

The 17-70 will be great if its IQ is the same with 16-45mm.. But still am waiting for it because of its focal length range.. I wonder how much will it be?

I am sure I would love the pentax 17-70, but I am also sure it will be out of my price range. From what I have seen, the 16-45 seems to be very good optically and very good bang for the buck.
