Pentax simply rebranded it. I haven't seen anything but repetitive rumors about the demise of the 18-250. I'm not saying they aren't true - I don't know - but both pentaximaging and tamron.com show their respective version of the lens as being current
Try buying the 18-250 at pentaximaging ... you get the "Sorry, the item you are looking for is not available" message. Appears discontinued.

What about Tokina's 16.5-135mm? If Pentax made a WR version of this lens, it would be a killer! No other brand has a weather-sealed super zoom.

Or a 18-270 with WR and quickshift (if possible). If it had good IQ, I would buy one in a heartbeat. If that is not possible, please Pentax, at least add WR to the 55-300.
