DA(L) 18-55 WR set lenses

Hi, if I have right information than DA lenses shloud have quickshift and DAL lenses should have not. Than, is that true that they sold K-30 with DA 18-55 WR kit lens and the one on k-50 is DAL 18-55 WR which means that it does not support quickshift?

Thank you.

DA-L means no quickshift, no distance scale, plastic mount.
DA (at least for kit zooms) means quickshift, distance scale, metal mount.

There's a table here which summarizes the difference between the 5 versions of the 18-55mm kit lens:

What they sell with each body needs careful looking at the DAl version is often used a the bundle version.
I annoyingly let a couple of 18-55 Da kit lens go for stupid money when they were the only kit lens then the dal version came out and their value jumped.

Pentax K-50 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens 10985

It says DA in the product highlights, not DAL. But the picture seems to say DAL. Confusing
