a) K-r + DA-L 35/2.4: $929
b) K-r + DA-L 18-55 & DA-L 50-200: $899.95
c) K-r + DA-L 18-55: $819

What's wrong with this picture? Shouldn't the 35 kit be priced pretty close to the 18-55 kit?

The links in the "article" don't link as they are labeled. (K-r 35mm kit goes goes to something else and one of the other ones is off too)

I can't find it either but the new zoom is there. The $100 rebates shown in another thread don't apply to the 35mm kit FWIW.
Earth is the answer to your sig BTW.

It's only available in the kit, I think.

Correct.

$100 rebate? Did not see anything about that.

I'm sure its old news but I did see the 35mm on Amazon and Adorama. Although Amazon says it will ship in 1-2 months and Adorama says nothing.

The K-r DA 35mm Lens Kit links to the Pentax K-r Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm and 50-200mm Zoom Lenses (Black) while the K-r DA 18-55 & 50-200mm Lens Kit links to the Pentax K-r Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm and 55-300mm Zoom Lenses (Black).

Any news/rumors on when B&H will sell the DA 35mm 2.4 lens only?

Nope, they have no idea.

I was told, via web chat with Pentax Imaging, the middle of October. As you may have noticed it is late October so I can therefore only conclude that Pentax Imaging are a bunch of liars. haha

Pentax prices are up. not necessarily a bad thing if the products deliver.
the K-5 will be compared to the 7D that is getting all the superlatives and love.

I am waiting for the reviews.

That's what I was trying to say.

Adam: Have you had a chance to take a look at the links yet?
