pentax smc-da 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 al wr

Hi ,
was looking to buy a k-01, body costs 349 euro
adding a 18-55 kit totals 389euro

on the other hand , i can buy a near mint
pentax smc-da 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 al wr for 60 euro

would this WR lens be a better buy over the normal kitlens ?

K-01 is not WR so if this is your only body then no. The lenses are optically the same.

60 Euro is around 80 Canadian, which is a great value for the 18-55 WR. You could probably sell it for more than what you paid for it down the road.

No one wants to buy DAL 18-55's (I have tried). If you get that, you're stuck with it for life, which isn't a bad thing really as they're quite serviceable in emergency situations. But the 18-55 WR's can move if needed.
