Well, just last week I saw a post here which said Amazon had it for $659.oo. I thought that was amazing to be honest. I think it was "Newarts" who placed this post, so search out his most recent posts if you need to. Best

Is it a White Kx?

I thought the black kx was the one bundled with the 55-300. Looks to me like your best option is to get the white kx and kit lens and then grab someone's DA-L 55-300 for 200 (they pop up in the marketplace every so often).

I have the black k-x bundled with the 55-300mm lens which I purchased from Amazon. Before purchasing, I tried to find the white version, but I don't think it exists.

The white k-x comes bundled with the 18-55mm lens in white as well. If they had the 55-300mm version, i would expect that lens would also be in the same color as the body. I have yet to see a white 55-300mm lens here, on Amazon, or eBay.

I contacted Pentax about this as soon as the camera was announced and they replied there would only be the single lens kits available for all 3 of the colored bodies.

Right - I wanted that exactly as well - because I wanted the white body and I knew I wouldn't be able to get the 55-300 that cheap - ever.

I ended up getting the white kit with the single lens... for a GREAT price (thanks to Amazon). I've used the extra to buy several cheaper lenses (mostly manual primes). I don't think you'll see the 55-300 for $200...

I ended up getting an older M200 f4 prime for a good price to play with while I decide if long lenses are for me...

It was amazing. I paid $740 a month later. It's $774 now.
