De-kitted SMC DA 18-50mm F4-5.6 DC WR RE Lenses - $100

Most likely new, and separated from retail kits.

By way of comparison, B&H sells the HD version for $247.

Note these are the DAL version and differ from the HD DA version in that there is no hood, but do have the standard pinch-type front cap. They also have the standard SMC coatings rather than HD.

Twice I nearly bought one for my K-01... it always struck me as a great match for that camera. But now I no longer own a K-01, and the lens has since fallen off my radar, but I think this is a very good deal.

Good deal on a surprisingly compact kit zoom lens. I am always pleasantly surprised and delighted when I use mine - WR, DC, retractable technologies are all great bonuses. Also I have had positive experiences in buying from Roberts Camera / Usedphotopro.

I purchased an new HD one for a very good price, intending to use it with the KP but never really warmed up to it. It always feels like I would break the lens trying to get the HD hood's cap off. Optically, I'll give it another chance ... As expected, the HD version is handling flare pretty well.
