Looks like it's back in stock. I ordered mine last Friday. It was shipped on Monday and is due to be delivered Friday. Keeping my fingers crossed that it is in fact K-5II with the DA 18-135, and not a microwave or a power saw or something else.

Interesting because you can see the camera if you click on the link, but the camera kit does not show up if you just search for Pentax or K5 II on the main page. Also, I signed up for an email alert to let me know when it went back in stock, and I have not received an email, so I have to wonder if it really is back in stock. Hmmm... Guess there is only one way to find out!

I once ordered a teleconverter from overstock and got a hairdryer... which, sadly, had more of an impact on IQ than I wanted, and thus sent it back.

They do have a good return policy, though.

Seriously, good luck and I hope the deal is legit. Looks like a winner.

Lol!

Well, now the K5-ii kit is again searchable on the main website, and I did receive an email alert this morning notifying me that it was back in stock. I decided to pull to the trigger and try my luck. I also went through the popular rebate site to get back another 2.5%, so not bad.
I wish they would have offered expedited shipping on it! Don't they know that I am impatient???

could anyone who ordered check their invoice and tell me if it has the SKU and full description?

I may order one as long as it does say something like pentax with kit lens or some stupid thing

Already looked at the Pentax Part # (which is really the only thing you can go by until someone has one in hand.

Wow, if this is true, it's a great deal. I would jump on one if it was the K-5 IIs, or maybe I should get it and keep the 18-135 and sell the body! Please keep us posted!

Same combo at Amazon is $1,154: Amazon.com: Pentax K-5 II 16.3 MP DSLR DA 18-135mm WR lens kit (Black): Camera & Photo

Sooooo....$170 savings to go with the sketchy provider. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm just wondering if the invoice has that same information on it. I did see your post which shows the website has the K-5II 18-135 wr kit number.
