Apparently that was a steal, as the remaining lenses of this type on eBay are all in the $160 to $220 range. Is this what I should expect to pay?

I got mine off of EBay about 3 years ago for about $90.  $160-220 seems steep.

I've seen them on the PentaxForums marketplace for the "around $100" range as well.   I've been on the hunt for an AF version of that same lens so that I'll have a small/light "party camera" with the K7.  Those tend to be about twice as expensive (around $200) if you can find them at all.
