Pricing on Pentax HD DA 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE Lens

I see that many retailers have the Pentax HD DA 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE lens currently priced at $396.95. Based on Amazon's page that is a discount off of the List Price. Does anyone know if $396.95 is really a temporary "Sale" price or whether it is just the regular pricing of this lens?

Until just before Thanksgiving when Pentax announced firmware update for the K-3 to work with the KAF4 lens mount, I was not paying any attention to this new KAF4 mount lens or it's pricing. I'm wondering if I should buy now (if it's really on sale) or wait until after the holidays when cash flow is less strained.

From the chart they were 400(399.96) at max.
I don't think it is a sale...

They were 250 on Black Friday on the UK. That's about $312. So the US price isn't really a sale price...

I suspect that is a temporary price on Amazon just now as it is lower than the previous version. Has anyone downloaded the firmware update for the K3 with this lens and , if so, were there any problems and does it all work OK especially the Autofocus?
