Now people can stop complaining. Then again, they'll complain that it would have been better day 1, but whatevaaaaa~

At 50 bucks more than then non-WR lens, it's definitely the best option to start with.

Amen to "It's about time Pentax USA came out with this!"

I can't believe that they have been selling the non-WR to novice photographers and not getting a LOT of "my WR camera is dead" complaints.

That's wonderful that they announce this the morning after I buy my K-30....

On the flip side, I got an amazing deal, and being a kit lens, I think we'll start seeing some on the used market in a few months as people upgrade...
