At least one UK Pentax Pro supplier is, or has been, selling it over the weekend at 271 - OTOH, i bought mine for 279 at the end of Jan this year and so I have had nearly a year's worth of use on the K-30 "upgraded" to K-50 f/w, and that has proved well worth it!

B&H has the same price.
Pentax HD PENTAX-DA 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE Lens 21277

Since I purchased it for $20 more on Friday, I've emailed them and asked if they're willing to give me $20 back.


added: small print says B&H price ends at 4:15 EST on Nov 30.

Buy a nice, barely used one from the marketplace for even less. Shameless plug since I have one there now but it is still good advice
