I ordered it from Pentax themselves. It's the kit with lens, which I'll probably promptly resell.

Damn, the navy blue has a black kit lens. Maybe I can request a white body w/ black kit lens for easier re-selling

lol ya i do agree that its prolly a decent lens for the monies. I would rather spend the 50 bucks toward a lense with quick shift. if they end up not releasing body only in white, no big deal. I just like having a quick option to manual focus rather than having to use my other hand to flip the manual/auto switch to refocus. I think this will come in handy since the k-x doesnt have AF adjustment
To be fair, I find that quick-shift is significantly more useful on telephoto lenses - they can take longer to hunt with the smaller aperture and FOV. In addition, in most of the shots w/ the 18-55mm, I'm not tracking something moving and can easily switch to MF b/c my hand is right under it.

However, lens hood is a must for it!
