Is this a new Pentax lens?

What is the lens in front of the camera in the "Full backward lens compatability" section of the K20D page? It's not a current lens, and it doesn't look like the 1.4x converter.

To me it looks like its just cropped to show the bayonet and the rest of the lens is removed, i would guess its a 18-55 or 16-45, too small to be a zoom lens.

I agree with Per. It looks like a DA 18-55mm where the front has been photoshopped out.

However, why they would use a DA lens to demonstrate backwards compatibility is anyone's guess.

No, because you can see the numbers for the focal length and the red/orange line FL marker. Definitely the back part of the kit lens.
