Pentax K30 with 18/55 WR lens $349.99
Posted By: reduno, 02-27-2015, 04:56 PM

Amazon currently has the K-30 with 18/55 WR lens for $349.99.
Amazon.com : Pentax K-30 lens kit black w DA 18-55WR Weather-Sealed 16 MP CMOS Digital SLR with DA 18-55mm and 3-Inch LCD Screen (OLD MODEL) : Slr Digital Cameras : Camera & Photo
Picture and description indicates DA (not DA L) lens but we will see. Answer to question on web page at least indicates it came with a WR lens. Just ordered one using extra $5 Discover card cash back offer, so only 4 left now. Amazon also has the white K-S1 body back down to $464.61 at the moment too.

The K-30 was never bundled with the DA L 18-55mm WR, so you'll either get the DA 18-55mm WR (as pictured) or just the standard DA L 18-55mm. Since it's fulfilled by Amazon I would expect to receive the former.

Adam, thanks for the information and adding the photo. I thought the DA L 18/55 WR was only recently bundled with the K-50. I will post once I get the camera to confirm exactly what was included. Just curious how the Pentax warranty stands for items fulfilled by amazon but not actually sold by them?

There are questions and answers at Amazon for many items - for this one the following is available:

is this lense water resistant?
A:Yes, I received camera with water resistant lens.

The DA L 18-55mm WR debuted alongside the K-50 (as did the DA L 50-200mm WR) since it didn't make sense for WR bodies to come with non-WR lenses, but it was cost-prohibitive to include the more expensive DA versions in kits.

It looks like they cleared out the ones that were fulfilled by Amazon from original seller. Now back up to $643.95!

I had the last one in my cart. By the time I entered my info it had gone back up to $645.....Boo Hoo.....Oh well.
Maybe thats just the K-S2 doing its "Voo Doo" magic on this K30 purchase !
I see the Pentax K-S2 is for sale on Ebay....In stock !

Had an e-mail indicating mine shipped today (free super saver shipping) and is expected Friday. I personally don't mind if it is white but I will let you know. Perhaps we should keep an eye on the Amazon warehouse deals if skid2964 is sending one back.

I will be glad to sell this one to a forum member for exactly what I paid, just cover shipping expenses, etc.

Well I received mine today (one day earlier than expected) and it is white too. Lens is the full DA 18/55 WR version (in black but I believe that was the only option then). Box has a "Pentax K-30 lens kit black" sticker over the "K-30 (WHITE) 18-55 WR KIT" label. Not going to return it but I may send a picture of the label to Amazon anyway.
