That ticks me off. I just ordered the bundle with the 200mm lens for $650 from Amazon yesterday. That really hurts.

You can refuse the package from the shipper, and they will return it.
Then contact Amazon and tell them you made an accidental mistake, and then purchase the other camera.

Ditto. I paid $799 for this identical K-x kit just this past weekend.

I paid $750 about 3 weeks ago from B&H... no biggie, as it was $900+ equivalent here in Hong Kong.

At $635 it's astounding value!

Just ordered

I just ordered this kit from Amazon and am excited about it. Could someone let me know what is included with the two lenses, specifically for each:
  1. Lens cap
  2. Rear lens cap
  3. Hood
  4. Filter
I do not expect filters. Are the filter sizes 52mm and 58mm?

Thanks for any information you can provide.

Elliot

Both lenses will have front and rear caps, but no hoods are provided. No filters either.

I hit "add to cart" to see the price and got a message saying "ships in 1 to 2 months"

When I looked early this morning, they showed 5 in stock. It took me an hour or so to decide, and after receiving confirmation of the order, the listing in Amazon had changed.

I suggest getting some good High Multi coated filters with your order.

It certainly isn't because of my charming attitude.
