PENTAX DA* 60-250mm F4 ED (IF) SDM

Does anyone know if this lens has become available yet, and the price? Is it any good? Noticed it on PENTAX Digital Cameras and DSLRs - Official PENTAX Imaging Web Site but it had no price-tag.

i do not know about Australia, but when I went to my local camera shop today and ask them the same question, they phoned Pentax Canada and got a reply saying that this lens will be available in jan 09, and the price is around 1600 CAD, could be lower, or higher, even Pentax isn't sure yet.

It showed up on Adorama a few days ago. (That I noticed, maybe earlier.) A bit pricey at $1399.95. I'm hoping the price will drop after the initial rush. This is an order only, with no guaranteed ship date.

Thanks, everyone. I was looking for a broad range DA zoom, and was about to purchase the 50-135 when I noticed this one. Maybe I should wait, even though it's not as fast.

How can it be 1400 dollars there cause it's 1000€ in Europe?
