I decided to buy K30

Compared with D5200,I'd like to buy K30,but the DA18-135WR lense is really expensive in China,should I buy DA18-55WR+DA50-200WR double lens?My total budget is less than $1000!

If there is any way to get the 18-135 then get it, if not the 18-55 and 50-200 WR should be fine.

If those two lenses together are cheaper than the 18-135, sure. Having some WR lenses with your WR camera is a great idea. You can always save up and buy a prime later, which will be better than any kit lens

Taobao?

If you trust Taobao this store sell the K-30 with the 18-135mm WR lens just above your budget.

Low light AF is a strong point for Pentax DSLRs.

Oh, just make sure the kit lenses are WR. The DA L versions aren't WR. The DA L are the ones that are all black with a plastic mount. You might want to buy the body only and buy a second hand WR lens, that would work out well.

You're in China. That is where the cheap eBay and webstores are (well HK which is now China). I know that is where mine come from (I'm Australian).
