Price of proposed 60-250 v 50-200

I'm considering buying the DA 50-200 now or 60-250 when it comes out. I have no idea how much extra the longer lens would generally cost over the shorter one. Could anyone guide me? Would the longer one be, say, 1.5x as much, or 2x as much. This is so I know whther to bother to save for the more expensive longer lens, or buy the shorter one now. I realise this may just be guessing, but it seems some people here have a feel for this kind of thing.

Even though we haven't heard anything from Pentax yet, I believe the DA 60-250mm is going to be at least $1000, being a constant f/4... it's a different class than DA 50-200...

So that's US dollars I presume (that's why I was asking for a factor like 1.5x as much as the 50-200). That's $NZ1490. I can get the 50-200 for $460, so that's roughly 3x the price! Crikey. Thanks.
