Thank you, Docrwm! Very good deal!
Do you know if I can purchase 2-y extension warranty from anywhere if the camera and lens are from overstock? I don't think overstock is a Pentax authorized reseller and very likely the camera kit is a grey market item without US warranty.
And if there is anything I need pentax service, say AF calibration, will pentax think it is under warranty service if I show overstock receipt?
Thank you for posting the great deal!

I tried to post the same deal awhile ago, but either Doc was faster on the trigger or Adam likes him more than me...lol.

This is a very tempting deal. I see that the K-5 II kit with the 18-55 lens is $10 more than the 18-135 WR kit, so that makes me question if this is a price mistake. Anyway, someone talk me out of pulling the trigger!

I called overstock a moment ago to confirm it is the 18-135 WR lens. Of course the rep talked to me could only repeat what the website list.
Overstock is a OK site. At least return should not be a problem if turns out a different lens/camera.
Anyone knows the warranty issue, as asked above?

They're famous for sending out ceiling fans instead of camera lenses!

Often when there are multiples of the same in the cue to be posted here (and all threads here have to be approved my a Moderator) only one makes it up. And, Yes they like me more

You can get the 2-yr warranty from Adorama for $19 now, there's a thread I posted about that too

We've seen this issue before and you can buy the camera one place and the warranty another and it all works as long as you KEEP BOTH RECEIPTS and they are purchased within 30 days of each other.

Got confirmed that the camera would come with no any kind of warranty, unless you buy their 2/3 years service plan.
I am really afraid it is either a "K5+18-135 KIT" or a "K5II_ 18-55 WR kit". Anyone ordered?

It seems like a bit too good to be true. I think it's probably the 18-55 WR instead of the 18-135 WR. B&H is offering this same bundle for $1350, and the K-5 II body only for $1000. How can Overstock charge $985 for both 18-135 and the body? Something fishy...

Good to know that. I thought since overstock is not a pentax authorized store, and this camera is a grey market stuff, or called "imported to USA", pentax may not want to accept the warranty.

I am a little confused: it seems the 2-y EXTENSION WARRANTY can be purchased as long as you are "within the original Pentax warranty and the camera is currently without damage". So the original warranty coule be extended to 3 years.
How about NO warranty to start with in this case?
