An "Estimated" price for the new 18-50mm WR's

Hey guys, I havn't been on PF for a few weeks and not sure if this is has all ready been done or if eveyone already knows about this and i'm the only pentaxian thats livig under a rock...anywho.

So like a lot of us out there i'm itchin for a shinny new 18-50mm WR because it's about time we got a weathersealed lens thats not going to cost the arm and three legs that a DA* cost (although they are completly worth every cent and possibly more)

This is the estimated price according to the Australian distos of Pentax, CR Kennedy (rang them up today to get a price) and as a result an estimated price only,

you are looking to slug out about $450 AUD

but knowing stores like Teds after some haggling and small sexual favors you can get that price down a bit...well thats what i'm hopeing for...

sorry if i have repeated something that others have already found out or know...

hope this helps

Have a good one!!

Some European retailers have had separate lens prices on their websites for a while now:

18-55mm WR about 180-230 euros depending on the store
50-200mm WR about 250-330 euros

I had a feeling that some one would tell me that i've been living under a rock.....hehe

as far as Australia i havn't seen a listed price maybe cause we dont have a pentax office here in AU or i havn't checked enough...

sorry my bad...

have a good one!

Ben, who knows, it might just be that the European prices are only rough guesses and yours could be more accurate. Besides, the prices may well differ from one continent to another.

List in Canada for the WR 18-55 appears to be $229.99 CDN.

Not sure when they'll show up--apparently the K-7 bodies will be available first?
