Re: Time to rethink the KIT LENS idea?

I was just burned (though gently) by the proliferation of Pentax 18-55s.  I ordered an 18-55wr through an Amazon affiliate, and they sent me an original, first-optical-version of the 18-55!  Yes the box was marked 'weather resistant' but they were way off.  Thankfully the refund and return was fairly painless - but will it be marked properly for the next buyer?

Time to move to a new FL zoom that only exists as a single flavor, or a prime kit.  Let's go with either a premium kit with two Limiteds (21+70?) or one with just the 35/2.4.  Personally I'd prefer the nonexistent DA26/2.4WR, that way they can market a 40mm equivalent again like the good ol' days
