I believe that J&R is offering the K7 & WR lens for $1119. That leads me to believe that the $899 price is with the non-WR version of the lens. Additionally, they are not specifying that which lens the $899 includes so their vagueness also leads me to believe it's a non-WR.
As far as J&R goes they are located in downtown Manhattan and are reputable and authorized Pentax dealers.
I doubt you'll be disappointed unless you're expecting a WR lens.
I have already confirmed within this thread that it is not the WR. you should read through the thread better (or look at the attached image) but it does not matter. I neither need nor much care about the WR 18-55. I will likely be selling the DA II that I am getting with the K-7. my new baby will be wearing Takumar's most of the time anyway. the weather sealing isnt the biggest reason I have wanted to upgrade to a K-7. either way, the list price for body only is among the cheapest anywhere, so anyone looking for a K-7 upgrade and does not need or want the kit lens, then a free 18-55 is a sweet perk on top of a fine deal for the body.

I was already looking at buying the K-7 from JR with the 5% bing cashback. This is just icing on the cake.

I had my credit card out and ready to order, but they're out of stock on the DA*16-50. Bleh.

The good folks at Pentax Forums set up a section for tracking the price of Pentax gear. There's already a thread set up for the K7, so this may be a good place to post this kind of info in the future.
Great find, by the way!

that is a damn good deal. if I needed the kit lens I may have jumped on this instead. but I didnt want to spend a thousand dollars. but for a complete starting kit, that is sweet.
