I know what the differences are between DA and DAL, but in the case of the 18-55 WR it seems to cause a large difference in price. Is the quick-shift focus mechanism so complex that removing it allows a big price drop? Or is this large price difference just a marketing ploy. But why would Pentax be pushing people in that direction? Any insights appreciated. --Tim
