You have my sympathy. That particular cap is as scarce as hens' teeth.

Several years ago I needed one to use on the A 16/2.8 fisheye lens (mine came form Pentax with no cap, ha ha) but had no luck after several months of back-and-forth with Pentax and every retailer I contacted. I finally got one by asking a friend in Japan to buy one there and ship it to me.

I suggest that you ask a forum member located in Japan to help you - you'll get no satisfaction from Pentax, if my experience is typical.
