Pentax DA 50-200mm WR version

I have a K200D and live in Oregon and most of the time, the legendary northwest rains don't bother me - which is why my main lens is a standard and NON-WR zoom. But, every once in awhile, when it really starts pouring or coming down, I find myself wishing for a weatherized lens. And the 50-200 length seems just right for my purposes. I know this lens isn't as highly 'rated' as the preferred (on this Forum at least) 55-300 -- but I'm willing to live with a 'lesser' lens if I can get a good 'copy' of it....

Anyone have one that they're not using? And willing to part with at a (...gulp....) reasonable price? The key word here is reasonable - and my current lens acquisition budget is on the severely limited side (I'm between jobs) --- but that isn't stopping me from posting this so maybe I should have my head examined.

Or - maybe you've got a 50-200 WR (yes - I really don't want the non-WR version) that's gathering dust in your bag or on your shelf - or that you'd like to see go to a good home (in an area with abundant inclement weather) ----

Well if that's the case, please let me know.
