according to the Ricoh/Pentax Rep i spoke to this morning, the lens shouldn't be on sale yet. Its supposed to be on sale when the K1 gets delivered.

Which lens ?
I understood the DFA15-30 and 28-105 will indeed come with K-1.
But DFA*70-200 is due to be available as soon as next week in Paris

The date for availability in Japan is March 18, so it should be shipping around now. The 28-105 and the 15-30 are both shown as "end of April", the same as the K-1.

DFA* 70-200mm - Fourth set of images from the St Patrick Day parade (many images): Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

4th set of images. Very good color and contrast. Apparently he is the only person in the world who pre-ordered and has this lens.
