AL II Kit lens w/K200D from Amazon ?

I have called and e-mailed repeatedly, to no avail, to find out from Amazon if the DA 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 kit lens sold with the K200D (ASIN#: B0012Q72IY) is the older version (shown in the photo on the lens as "AL" but not confirmed anywhere), or the newer "AL II" version that has been shipping from Pentax for over a year. Does anyone know which version comes with the K200D (Amazon has NO WAY to find out, apparently). Better yet, does anyone know a reliable vendor who has the brand new K200D + DA 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 AL II for under $600 ? Thanks !

B&H has been listing the K200d kit for approx $577 (cart price), but it doesn't say whether or not it's the II lens. Call and maybe they can tell you. It's a decent price with either lens & the supply of new K200d bodies is probably almost gone, so it might be worth grabbing one soon.
