    The WR dual lens kit is 18-55mm and 50-200mm
    Pentax does not have a 18-200mm.
    Used to have a DA 18-250mm (I have that) which is actually a rebadged Tamron 18-250mm, but the lens has been discontinued... you can still find it but it seems shops are selling this for some exorbitantly high price.
    You can still get Tamron 18-250mm for Pentax K mount.
    Tamron and Sigma also sell 18-200mm for Pentax K mount.
    Sigma also has an 18-250mm for Pentax K mount, it comes with OC which is redundant because all Pentax cams already have inbody stabilisation, so price is higher for the Sigma than the Tamron.
    If you are in Korea, you might also be able to find Samsung 18-250mm which is actually the same as the Pentax 18-250mm which is actually the same as the Tamron 18-250mm. The price was quite cheap when I saw it at Incheon International Airport.

    It's "If I Remember Correctly".

    The 18-55, 50-200, 55-300 have DA and DA L versions. 18-55, 50-200 also have DA WR, which is the current promotional kit.

    The DA L versions are sold with the K-x and probably not available separately. They have gray ring on the lenses vs green on DA/ DA WR.

    Pentax has DA 18-250 available separately but discontinued. It is optically identical to the Tamron 18-250 which is still available.

    Sigma has a 30mm f/1.4 and 50mm f/1.4. The 50mm I think it's not worth it, it's significantly bigger and more expensive than the Pentax FA, unless you really want the HSM. The 30mm may be a decent choice (I'm thinking about this one too) if you can't stomach the price of the FA 31mm Ltd, and if you find the FA35mm or DA35mm too slow for you.



    Wow`! The FA 50mm f/1.4 only $330 and now $500++

Usally for third party lenses, people get them for the standard kit zoom lens like 18-50mm f2.8. Else its really better to stick with Pentax lenses - seriously, Pentax have a range of very good lenses, don't waste the advantage. In photography, good optics comes at a price but there is also a point of diminishing return.

    Hey scorpioh,

    thanks for the useful info!

    The K-7 does indeed have filters like the K-x.



    I do agree that a lot of the filter effects would be better executed during post processing but they do serve a "quick and dirty" way to get picture effects with little effort. Making photography easier is always a good thing imo.

    People who think it is a gimmick:
    a) risk the danger of being too narrow minded and dogmatic
    b) haven't bothered to experiment and get to know their camera fully
    c) are blissfully ignorant to their potential and application

    I do use the monochrome filters on my K-7 and LX-3 for example. On the K-7, I set my User mode for precisely this feature. It may not be as good as post processing an image in Adobe Bridge, Lightroom or Photoshop but it does offer an interesting approach.
    This very quick shot of Sebianos' classic Agfa was taken with the built-in monochrome filter straight from the camera with no levels or curves post processing. The K-7's exposure metering is just great.

    If you're going to be in it for the long haul, I think the K-7 would be best.

    The single lens kit lens are the same color as the body except for navy blue which comes with a black lens.
    The dual lens kits are all black body + lens.

    i went searching for the K-x today

    Nastasea, SLR Rev is selling it for 782. Not promoting them but they give the most competitive price so far. I went to Orient Photo to check out if they have stock for the dual lens kit which sadly they don't and they quoted a few dollars more than SLR Rev. But buy at the shop where you feel the most comfortable

    Still waiting for SLR Rev to call me back to tell me when stocks will be coming in =/

    A Canon user told me 2 hrs ago he was with someone who had the kx and taking photos under the same dim conditions together. While his was blurred and noisy (I think he had the 400D), the kx managed to catch it clear and with so little noise he was visibily impressed by it. I hope he dumps the dark side and join the rebellion He's not fussy about the brand but do care about noise..
    BTW, any price below $800 should grab immediately. Don't let a few dollars difference stop you from enjoying that few more days of photography!

    About the coolest camera, I was walking around with my white Kx in my uni during a club gathering, I had like all sort of stares at the camera.

    Everyone talked to me thinks its a very nice camera.

    Someone asked me " Is that a Canon? "

    "Urgh no... it's a Pentax"

    I experienced the same thing when I took my white K-X to the PC Show to shoot. Got 1 guy even walked to me & asked the brand/model of the cam.
