is the K5 available at a set with the 18-135 in the US yet?

Or online? I hear the lens is cheaper with the camera.

I have been waiting to order the K-5 with the 18-135 but need some little incentive to push me over the edge ... but so far nothing. The price of the K-5 is holding steady at around $130 below MSRP and that of the 18-135 at $30 below MSRP. A bigger price drop, a rebate or a discount on the 18-135 when purchased in a kit with the K-5 would do the trick.

And while I have been waiting I have been toying with the idea of getting the D7000 instead (would have probably gotten it by now if it hadn't been sold out everywhere). I am not heavily invested in either system and understand the trade-offs involved but even with all the advantages Pentax has (more compact, weather sealed, SR in body, etc) I don't see a compelling reason to fork over $500 more than what I would pay for the D7000 kit (w/ 18-105 lens).

I am not finding it and really want this combo. I will keep looking and hopefully this combo becomes available together soon.

A few weeks ago I asked around at B&H, and the guy at the Pentax booth told me usually if they will get something in stock in the future, even if it hasn't been announced publicly yet, it will be listed in the B&H system. The K5 & 18-135 kit was not in the system, however both items were listed separately.

Take that for what you will.
