K30 kit lenses - WR or not WR?

Hi Chuck: Your pre-order listing for the basic K30 with 18~55 kit lens lists the model as the WR version in the text description of the kit, at the same price as the other retailers are offering the DA-L version, but shows the stock photo of the DA-L version. A member called your order desk to ask which lens is really offered and was told it will be the WR version and you are waiting for a correct photo from Pentax.

Adam has posted that your website is incorrect and B&H will in fact offer the 18~55 DA-L non WR - that you will change your website soon.

Just thought I'd ask dirctly to settle the raging debate which option is correct.

Thanks in advance fro your reply.

I E-mailed our Pentax rep: " Sorry for the confusion. The only K30 kit that has a WR lens is the K30 18-135 WR kit. All other included lenses are 18-55mm AL , 50-200mm AL and 55-300mm AL. These lenses are only available in the kits and are not sold separately."

Hope this helps.
