Received lens and K-5 from AJ Richies. The lens has all the correct markings andlooks new. It bothered me that there was no cardboard cradle, just lens wrappedin bubble wrap sitting in bottom of the box.

Took a few pictures, lens operated correctly and resultslooked the same as photos taken of the same subject with other lens (DA 18-55 ALII non WR which is what I returned).

K-5 came in original packing from Pentax. The box had no space for a lens. My best guessis the last lens they sent me was separated from a K-7 or Kr kit.

Discovered from EXIF data that the K-5 was manufactured Aug28, 2011. From the serial number of the lens, looks like its from earlier 2010.

thank all of you for your comments, its reassuring.

(my first post on forum)

Received in a white box, Pentax DA 18-55 F3.5-5.6 WR inbubble wrap, no cardboard support, no markings on box but there was a UPC labelPN1855WROB. Box included PH-RBC lens hood, lens manual, serial number card andPentax Worldwide Service Network literature.
Newest camera the lens manual refers is to is K-7 and K-x,K-5 not mentioned.

Is the lens new from the manufacturer, new- split from a kit,refurbished, non US version or something else.

Here is how it happened; ordered K-5 with lens and US manufacturerswarranty SKU PENK51855US received K-5 with incorrect lens, shipped lens back andthen received white box as described above.

If someone helping me has questions please be aware I willbe unable to respond for about a week.

thanks, Bernie
