Still waiting to see a shipment notification on my Blue body from B&H. Sure would be nice to see it in stock next week!

I'd keep my fingers crossed for next week, as it doesn't look like it's being sold anywhere else yet either!

Yeah, I was upset about that. I cancelled my preorder and I ordered one with the 18-55 lens. I figured I could sell it for at least $50.
It shipped friday and I should have it on wednesday.

Newegg has some too!

Newegg has the 18-55 kit available in black, blue and white with a 2-day shipping option.

Newegg.com - pentax k-30

I would like to see more retailers stock the 18-135 kit though, I believe that is the one which has the most value for first-time Pentax buyers, like me :-D

I would've kitted with the 18-135, but I really wanted the white. 0.o

The price of the standalone lens has gone down a bit, so you can always get it separately now. Ends up only being slightly more expensive, but then again you don't have to worry about selling off a black K-30

18-135 at Adoroma

The 18-135 kit is now in stock at Adorama. I am hoping B&H should have it soon as well. Ditto for the white body.

That's strange. I am pretty sure it was there. Yesterday, only the Blue body was being shown as unavailable. They still are showing the white body as available. Pentax K5 K-30 Digital SLR Camera Body, White 15668.

I am guessing they either have very limited quantities or the its a glitch in the site.

Adorama's site is iffy at times. It doesn't always show a notice even if they don't have something.

Just updated the list in the first post. Every kit is now available in at least one store!

What are the chances you can negotiate some UK based affiliate links so your UK based togs can help you out as well?

I haven't heard of any non-US retailers that have affiliate programs other than regional amazon and ebay sites. If you know of any, I can certainly reach out to them, though!

Does buying from Amazon through the link above count towards account upgrades?

Thanks
