See the price trend in the lens review section:
SMC Pentax-FA 100-300mm F4.5-5.6 Reviews - FA Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Two comments:

- The DA55-300mm is well regarded among the low-priced modern zoom lenses.
Pentax-DA 55-300mm Review - Introduction -

- There has been some significant progresses in zoom lens development, compared for example to prime lens development. In turn the vintage zoom lenses are not always well thought after.

Hope that the info may help....
