K200D kit with new lens?

It seems most of the kit comes with the old lens. Does anyone know what store are selling the kit with the new lens DA 18-55mm II?

Hmm, I check the website, it specifically mention it's the old version. I'll email and ask them.

I got mine from Ritz Camera on-line and it came with the new II version. I was worried at first after I ordered it because their picture showed the old one, but it is actually the Pentax packaged kit with the new lens. The vendors also (usually) post the Pentax item number, which mine is 19554, and is marked on the kit box. It works great. If you order one with that part number, you probably are fine. Good luck.

Is the new Kit lens better than the old kit lens?

It's definitely heavier, but I haven't tested it side by side to the old version (I will one of these days). The zoom is smooth and overall the lens feels solid.

So if the lens is heavier, it must be made of metal and or better glass. No biggie, it was not on my list of things to get, I was more curious than anything.
