Yes, you're correct-- the listing for the DA 50 is now up again, and this time with the following price information:

Regular price: $249.95
Instant rebate: $65.00
Price after rebate: $184.95
Double the instant rebate amount when you purchase this lens with any K-Mount body! Call 1-800-345-9935 to order!
- See more at: PENTAX DA 50mm f/1.8 smc PENTAX DA 50mm f/1.8

(So, "double the instant rebate" means that the final price would be $120, but you have to buy a body to go along with the order)
I'd guess fixing the original Listing problem ("Double Rebate" if bought with a body, which was the original intent) was the first step in resolving the problem.

Next they will announce and implement whatever offer they make to buyers affected and disappointed by the incorrect Listing. I won't speculate on that.

The final step(s) will be whatever remedy can be applied to the SureSource Customer Service issues detailed in this (and many other) thread(s).

FWIW, the UPS driver just rang my bell (while I was typing) and dropped a Q/03 Fish-Eye that Barondla talked me into buying - from B&H late on 8/16 for $102.06 Confirmed, Emailed, Shipped, Tracked and Fulfilled as promised.
