K-5 + 18-135mm kit

Hi,

Any news on when a K5+18-135mm package kit will become available at B&H? Any word on pricing as well?

Thanks

I haven't heard anything from Pentax about the coming of such a kit- it's starting to look like the 18-135 is just the k-5's trademark lens, just like the 17-70 was the k-7's. However, the price of the package has fallen by over $300 since lanch:


1389 for the k5: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/735971-REG/Pentax_14748_K_5_Digital_SLR_Camera.html
499 for the 18-135: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/740381-USA/Pentax_21977_SMC_DA_18_135mm_F_3_5_5_6.html

Thus the kit price would be about $1890

I would also be interested if this were to become available!

(posting this on the off chance that it will encourage B&H / Pentax to release it as a kit in the US)

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by that.

Sorry, but "kits" come from the manufacturer either in a single box or 2 separate items sold as a package. There are times when you may see an item listed as a B&H Kit but these usually have an incentive from the manufacturer behind the scenes.

Thank you, we appreciate your business.

Thanks for the explanation, Chuck. Will be making this purchase as soon as the IRS refund comes in.
