DA*50-135 at Masuyastore on ebay

In my monitoring of Pentax glass on ebay over the last 6 months, these guys seem to sell a large volume of glass and are well rated. They have the DA* 50-135 listed for sale: smc Pentax DA Star 50-135mm f/2.8 ED IF SDM Brand new - (item 150145902261 end time Aug-25-07 22:45:22 PDT)
I cannot tell if it is in stock for immediate sale or not...they have no actual picture of box or anything, so I am a little skeptical. They also are selling it for about $300 more than Adorama had it listed.
I continue to wait for Adorama to fill my order, hopefully in mid-august

why? I think the lens was released today in Japan, so I guess it is fair to assume that it's for sale...

does anyone on the forum have one already?

Yeah, masuyastore has been offering a broad range of Pentax glass ranging for FA*'s to manaul lenses over the past few months. I'm glad to see that the DA*'s are finally surfacting- I'll be looking forward to the 16-50mm
