Latest Japanese K-5 "Street" Prices for Kits

Kit Set 1: Pentax K-5 w/ 18-55 WR:- (Japanese)

@ ¥139,300 (~US$1,650)

Kit Set 2: Pentax K-5 w/ 18-135 WR:- (Japanese)

@ ¥170,800 (~US$2,020)

"Kit" 3: Body Only:- (Japanese)

@ ¥125,790 (~US$1,490)

Thus, by subtracting the costs of the lens kits with the body price, the costs of the kit lenses are as follows:-

1. DA 18-55/3.5-5.6 WR: $160

2. DA 18-135/3.5-5.6 WR DC: $530

According to the past experiences, though initial Japanese "street" prices (actually many are online shops also) usually set the reference prices for the US market later on (which would not be lowered for the first few months for new products). So, these should be of good reference value.

Btw, if you just want to buy directly (actually indirectly ;-)) online at those Japanese shops, see my last guide here.
