Why no "Buy" option for DA* 55?


I'm sorry if this has been discussed before but why isn't there an option to buy the smc PENTAX DA Star 55mm F1.4 SDM & smc PENTAX DA Star 60-250mm F4 ED (IF) SDM on the Pentax site? I noticed there was on the webstore site. Is this anything more than an issue with the main site?

I am going to buy a K20d as my first DSLR & was considering the 55mm lens to start out with.

I've been reading on here for a while & I appreciate all of the great info you guys present here.

Is there a reason you want to buy from Pentax? You can usually get a much better price on-line shopping. Amazon has a lightly used 55mm for $600.00 shipped and a new 60-250mm for $1,269.95.
Not sure whats wrong with Pentax site.
