Pentax K-3 and 18-135mm WR kit

Hi

I was looking at the K-3 with the 18-135mm and noticed that there is a 18-135mm lens available for around 70 less than it costs in the kit. Is this a different lens? Is the 18-135mm in the kit a new HD version?

There is only one version of the DA 18-135mm.

Ok. I misread the price. It is 30 more expensive to get the lens in a kit, not 70. I wonder why it is more expensive. You would have thought it would be cheaper as part of a kit.

Yeah, that makes no sense.

I'd look at it very closely, make sure that separate lens hasn't been "relieved" of its hood etc...
There are a lot of unscrupulous vendors out there.

There are a few available for the same price:

Pentax 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 ED AL IF DC WR Lens best price

The first is unboxed but the others are not by the look of it.
