Whilst I realise there probably aren't that many Pentax users here compared to Canon users etc. I thought I would post this for anyone after the WR 18-55mm lens as it is currently on offer with £60 off. Note that this is the better built DA version (notice the green ring) which has the quick shift focus and metal mount. The budget DAL version can be had for less if you get it split from a kit and is sometimes listed incorrectly as the DA.

18-55mm (35mm equiv. 27-82.5mm)
Weather resistant
Metallic lens mount
SP coating
Quick-Shift focus
Mount: Pentax K AF
Includes lens hood
Filter size: 52mm
Dimensions: 6.75L x 6.85D cm
Weight: 230g

The site gives the option for free UK mainland delivery at checkout.

I'm a simple man. I see Pentax deals and I press heat

I believe Mifsuds only give free delivery on orders over £100 so this works out cheaper unless you buy something else as well.

Now need matching dsrl camera deal :| Not a lot Pentax deals here :|

WR = Weather Resist / I've shot so many photos in the rain with this lens, and got photos I otherwise would not have been able to get.

It's also (performance wise) the best kit lens out of all the DSLR big players, it's outperformed a bit by the Sony E mount kit lens though.

As kit lenses go the Fujifilm XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 will take some beating.

Thanks for this (and your link TK42). There is a great comparison of K-70 vs. K-S2 on Pentax forums too...bottom line is go for cheaper 2015 model or higher price K-70 with more bells & whistles. Hmmm...

What about image stabilization? Have they fixed it on both models? K-S2 looks tempting but not much deals on it either...

I think for the time being it's best to wait until Adam at Pentax Forums gets a review up, all there is to go on at the minute is mainly high iso performance. K-70 with the new 24mp sensor and pixel shift and a few more bells and whistles, untried and tested compared to the K-S2 ? or a good used K-3II.

I wasn't aware of any problems with image stabilization on the K-S2, I know the dreaded aperture motor failure has cropped up in a few posts online. If you can hold off until Black Friday SRS had some great deals last year that ran into Christmas, also keep an eye on Amazon for reductions, I got my K-S1 with 50mm f1.8 for £209 back in April.
