I had to pull the trigger on the black one. Was about to spend $40 for a bag anyway...

What did you misunderstand about "WR"?
Not sure I misunderstood - as much as I overtested it. It got wet on a water ride in Orlando - 18-55 lens fogged up the next day and stayed that way for several days. Camera worked great even after the dousing of water, lens not so much. Since water damage is not covered by warranty, Pentax rep suggested I return it. One advantage of Costco is easy return policy.

While I plead guilty to stupidity on this, I also think it would have been cheaper for all if Pentax would have been willing to service the 2 week old lens. I'd buy another K-S2 in the future (if my wife lets me...) because it really did fit a nice lightweight niche.

Well, certain water rides in Orlando are notorious for not just a light splashing, rather they provide a solid dousing, usually requiring a full change of clothing down to one's underwear.

Yeah the price is still $499 for the bundle. I keep telling myself, no you don't need it. However it is getting harder to listen. I would have to sell my K50. It's a good thing they don't have them in the stores.

I'm waiting for BF to see of anyone has a good deal with the K-S2 & the 18-135. I'd like to upgrade my daughter's camera. But the K-x works perfectly fine. So, it's not a need.

K-S2 costco sale

I bought the KS 2 White from Costco today. They have a great return policy 90 days after purchase it can be returned for refund if returned as you received the package. If there is better deal on Black Friday It can be returned. I can't see it being offered with that package at too much lower of a price. They only have a few white models left and on other sites the white is offered at a higher price then the other colors. I don't need the lenses and I am sure they could be sold for $150.00 dollars for the pair. Bring the package price down to $350 dollars ( camera, memory card and pentax case).

Often Costo matches the price. I have asked once in the past and they did.
