It's a Typo:

Pentax 50mm f/1.8 DA

While $250 might sound a little high for a 50mm f/1.8, this lens has Pentax’s SP (Super Protect) anti-smudge coating on lens elements, rounded diaphragm blades, excellent fit and finish. Film fans note: It covers full-frame 35mm.

They also listed the K-30 as a top pick:

Pentax K-30
Pentax keeps doing it—that is, producing weatherproof DSLRs with beefy construction and firepower (as in 6-fps bursts), but whose price challenges that of other makers’ entry-level models. The least expensive configuration: with the 18–55mm kit lens shown for $899.

OMG! This was on Facebook as well, but I should have known people would interpret a typo (which btw doesn't look good on Pentax's part) for a leak, even if it is as unlikely as this one.
