HD 18-50mm - just $146 (44% off!)
Posted By: Adam, 11-17-2018, 02:44 PM

Over the course of the past couple of weeks, the price of this lens has slipped 44% below the previous average of $263. If you're looking for a replacement for the 18-55mm or a compact go-anywhere lens, this one could be the right fit for you. This is the HD version, which does better than the SMC version sold in bundles: HD vs. SMC Pentax-DA 18-50mm F4-5.6 Review - Introduction | PentaxForums.com Reviews

This deal is currently exclusive to B&H.

That's the 18-55 - not the 18-50 unless the deal changed.

I got a bit confused earlier by these posts so I deleted my previous reply, thinking it had been made irrelevant. However, it wasn't, so I'll write again regarding Adam's suggestion about the 18-50 - "this one could be the right fit for you". One example is that, for anyone who goes out shooting with one or more Limited Primes, this new WR kit lens is so light and compact that it is easy to fit into a pocket just in case the weather deteriorates.

Interesting. In the description it says it's included and free. Below the camera it says "Add to cart +$76.84". And in the bullet list of box contents, it's completely omitted.


I guess that leaves it up to chance :|
