The product description refers to the 18-55 AL, AL II, and AL WR. I wish they'd make it clear what they're selling...

I wish they ONLY made the WR. That would make sense.

As far as Pentax goes, both the original and the mark II kit lens is discontinued. It's just the DA L plastic version and the DA WR now. Maybe the beach camera listing is simply a copy-and-paste of an earlier kit lens sale with a little bit of editing here and there, which would account for the errors.

Questionable seller plus a questionable item description equals avoid.

For $30 more you can be sure of what you are getting from one of our most reputable vendors - why oh why take such a chance....??

Like with many items at Adorama, you need to put the item in your cart to see the discounted price:

Wow, I did not know I need to put items in cart to see discounted price. Should I put all lenses in cart and keep checking it everyday?

Well good for you! Glad it worked out.

I see they must have caught their mistake as the price in the ebay link is now $196.95 - you got a great deal!

If it's the Beach camera in NJ, it's the NJ equivalent of Adorama. My friend often orders from them to save on NY taxes.
