I purchased a DA 12-24 from B&H it arrived today, when it's arrived i noticed that in the box it was simply wrapped in a very thin bubble wrap.
That is very strange. I bought a used DA 12-24 and it did come with a soft case. Every new pentax lens I have purchased has come with one, except the DA 18-55. (That includes the DA 10-17, the DFA 100 WR, and the DA* 300.)

My fisheye came with the idiotic S80-80 velcroed soft pouch. If I'd realised that these things sell for 25+ I'd have treated it with more respect rather just dump it in the bottom drawer

The DA zooms shipped with soft case is 10-17mm, 16-50mm, 50-135mm, 55-300mm and 60-250mm. The 16-45mm, 17-70mm 18-55mm, 18-250mm ,50-200mm and 12-24mm come without any case.

Summary of compatible cases for DA and DA* zooms
DA 10-17mm_______S80-80_______Yes
DA 12-24mm_______S100-120_____No
DA 16-45mm_______S90-140______No
DA* 16-50mm______S100-140_____Yes
DA 17-70mm_______S90-140______No
DA 18-55mm (all)___S80-120______No
DA 18-250mm______S80-120______No
DA 50-200mm (all)__S80-120______No
DA* 50-135mm_____S90-160______Yes
DA 55-300mm______S80-160______Yes
DA* 60-250mm_____S120-210_____Yes

* S90-140 has been discontinued, S80-120 can be purchased from
* S100-120 is overpriced.
* DA 17-70mm can also fit S100-140.
* DA 18-250mm official case is S90-140, but S80-120 works very well.

how about a da 40mm limited?
ALL DA and FA ltd lenses come with drawstring type pouches. The other lenses come with a cordura type pouch.
