I expect that the K-3iii will normally be kitted with the new DA* 16-50mm PLM, but the DA 20-40 would provide a less costly kit.
I donít know if Pentax will kit the K3-3 with anything, except for the eventual and inevitable special editions.

That said, Iím sure all the big retailers will build their own kits with the 16-50, 20-40, and 16-85.

And thereís nothing stopping Pentax from doing deals with retailers to incentivize lens sales (free 16-50 with every 10 K3-3 bodies, or something)

I suspect, though, that any of those games will come later, in the event that supply gets too high at Ricoh.

But Ricoh seems to have been very good of late at getting their quantities right. And all the OEMs seem to be having trouble. Weíll have to see how the old supply/demand thing works out...

Has any Pentax camera ever been kitted with a DA*?
I don't think so.
At least in France, there were kits with K20D and DA 16-50mm f/2.8 and double kits with K20D, DA 16-50mm f/2.8 and DA 50-135mm f/2.8. Quite interesting at that: Ä1,600 for the later.

Those were the times...
