300mm K-r kit, in white

Hey guys, I'm looking to buy the K-r in white, and I'm considering the 300mm lens kit--although I can't find it online anywhere at the moment. My question is, will the 300mm kit lens come in white, or does it ship in black like all the other lenses. Seems silly, but it's factoring in to my decision right now, because I'm on the fence on whether or not I really need the longer lens anyway.

Thanks for the help!

I don't think the 55-300 is available in white.
But it is a great addition to the white K-r anyway.

And welcome to the forum!

The DA L 55-300mm is only packaged with the black bodies when sold as a kit. I don't believe you can get that lens in any other color. The old K2000D used to have a white 50-200mm that came as a kit.

Thanks for your responses. I found the "instant chat" support option on the website, and they confirmed that that lens only comes in black. I did not realize that it is not packaged as a kit though. Thanks for posting that nugget. I thought maybe everything was out of stock after the holiday season. Guess I don't need to wait now. . .

AFAIK the only lenses that come in more than one color are these:

SMC Pentax-DA L 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL Lens Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database

It isn't in the USA and it's way over priced but..

NEW PENTAX DA 35mm F2.4 F/2.4 LENS WHITE 4 K-5 K-r Kr - eBay (item 200558813271 end time Jan-25-11 22:56:50 PST)

Even his regular DA35 f2.4 is/was $100 too much. You can get it with "free shipping" if I'm not mistaken for an extra $59 .

Slightly more reasonable (combined price) from Japan..

Adam, if the DA L 50-200mm is available in white, do you have any suggestions for how to order one? I don't see any color options on the pentaximaging website.
