Is Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4 AL out of production?

Is Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4 AL discontinued by Pentax? Amazon has "(Discontinued by Manufacturer)" in the title:
http://www.amazon.com/Pentax-21987-Digital-Discontinued-Manufacturer/dp/B004..._cd_al_qh_dp_t

The seller is not Amazon but one of the seller (who seem to sell mot of photography related products and has good ratings) answered the question I asked saying that this lens is indeed no longer in production. Is Pentax in the process of unveiling a new version of this lens? Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

You happened to have queried the least reliable source for lens production status. There have been countless times when a 3rd party seller on Amazon has declared a Pentax lens "out of production" when, in fact, it wasn't. I'd only rely on Adam here, Adorama, or B&H for this kind of info.

Amazon's listings keep on indicating this, and it keeps on throwing people off. They should get their act together instead of echoing their affiliated sellers' stock information...

In any case, none of the recently-launched Pentax lenses are currently discontinued. If you go to the lens database, there's a yellow icon by discontinued lenses.
