Any news of a K-5 kit with 18-135 lens ?

I had been hoping to pick up a K-5 with a 18-135 WR lens to go with it. Other than the sensor stain issue that popped up recently (I am waiting to see how it is resolved before pulling the trigger) the only other thing keeping me from getting these is the fact that there is no kit available yet in the US. There were rumors of a significant discount on the price of the 18-135 if purchased in a kit with the K-5. I don't want to pay close to MSRP for the two separately only to see a kit come out that has a discount on the price of the lens (currently about $500 if purchased separately). Has anyone heard about the availability of the kit (which I am sure a lot of people will be interested in) in the US ?

The sensor stain issue is really annoying. Otherwise, I'll pull the trigger before Christmas.

Is it? Because it's back-ordered at Simon's...
