+1 I suspect the majority of DSLR users never buy another lens. The prevalent opinion on this forum that unless you use DA* or Limited glass your images are not worth the battery power to take may be true on this forum but it is not out in the general population. Most purchasers are looking for a decent camera to take family snaps or shots at their children's soccer game. The kit lens is perfectly adequate for that and they do not want the complexity and confusion of owning multiple lenses. So having a good quality (DC and WR and RE) kit lens is a good move. This looks like an interesting lens and perhaps the first 'new' kit lens from Pentax in a long time.
Same here. I bought my K-x with the two kit lenses. I learned with them and later aspired to something else. I bought a Tamron 18-250 lens that is a fantastic replacements to the two kit lenses. It covers their full range with one lens. This decision wasn't wrong. Pentax itself thought it was a good lens and bought the rights to it for rebranding. But the point is that I wouldn't know what to buy if I didn't have the kit lenses to learn! That and PentaxForums of course.

SDXC refers to the class of SD cards that the camera can use. The k-3 has a newer processor that can use the higher SDXC speeds. The k-5II's processor is older and could only support SDHC when it was introduced (but then firmware allowed for SDXC afterwards anyways..)

Does anyone know when this new camera is coming out?
I almost bought a k-50 today, but now I am thinking the price may drop again once this new release (K-50 successor) comes out...

What does everyone think?
Worth the wait? Or has the K-50 pretty much already hit rock-bottom price at $396 body only?

The tentative schedule is "Spring 2015" but that could change without notice.

I suspect the K-50 is at or near rock bottom. Do not be surprised if it goes UP in price over the next couple months as stock dwindels. The K-30 went up after the k-50 came out.

Since they started with the KS-1, I think this will be the KS-10. Weird huh, but who knows.

Your drawing is interesting. I had a package which, according to tracking, did something even worse than staying put; it went from Chicago suburb1 to suburb2 and then back to suburb1, before finally heading towards Indiana. As nearly as I can tell, the loop to suburb2 was a mistake that added at least three days to the time it took for the package to get to me.
Must have been UPS, they seem to push the delivery out quite often.

Well, that would be one way to get the K-mount back into the Pro market.
