Harder to find Pentax 55-300 ?

I've been pricing the Pentax 55-300 lens. I thought I heard it was suppose to come down to $299. Not only can I not find it for that price but it seems that's it's getting harder to find this lens right now.
I've gone to all the usual suspects on line and places are either low on stock or dont even list this lens even thought they seemed to be abundant a short time back.
Anybody else finding this? The places I can find it at the price is alot higher than what I had seen a short time ago too. What's going on.( Or is it just me).

B&H has it for 329.95 with free shipping, just got mine . Plus i paid 21 and change for 2nd day air shipping.
I think it was worth it.

Cheers. Mike.

Maybe they'll upgrade it to a weather sealed version?

It is not bad for the money, just took over 2000 shots with it in the past 2 days.

Cheers. Mike.
