Amazon Germany restocking K-01 with WR Kit Lenses starting April 7th

K-01 will be available on amazon (and FROM amazon) Germany again, wondering were these are coming from.

Also this might be the cheapest way to get yourself the WR kit lenses with a body ever!!!

The black one is packaged with the Kit 18-55 and 50-200 WR lenses.
Price EUR 458,43.

The yellow one is packaged with the DA 18-55 mm WR
Price EUR 390,39

That's very interesting and it seems odd that they bundled it with the WR. Have you ordered one of these? I wouldn't be surprised if that was just an error in the description. Or maybe Pentax has run out of DA-L's without WR? What are current cameras being sold with?

Might be old stock. The K-01 was never bundled with WR lenses, so I'm thinking they just used the wrong image at the bottom of the listing.

Non-WR cameras (K-S1, K-500) come with the DA L 18-55, WR cameras (K-50, K-S2) come with the DA L 18-50mm WR or DA L 18-55mm WR, and premium cameras (K-3, K-5 IIs) come with the DA 18-55 WR. The non-WR lens hasn't been discontinued.

I haven't ordered as I only just ordered the MX-01.
Perhaps I'll still do. Amazon is obliged to send me what's in the description, so...

Comes with a WR lens?? Really? Because the K-01 is not WR. But interesting that it is coming around. I think there is still demand, if the price is reasonable (could be a little lower than what it says right now, but for a WR bundle it makes more sense)

Wow... pricey!
Glad I got mine with that nifty 40mm and for much less... bought a nice viewfinder with the money I saved!
