Default Battery-Grip, WR lenses, when?

Numerous suppliers are now posting the new K-7 for pre-order, however, none of them are showing it as a package with the new WR kit lenses or the battery grip. For me, a smaller camera with no battery grip is less than a no-go because of size issues, and I would like to replace my stolen kit lens with the WR variety.

Anyone got any idea when these will be marketed?

Hi Paul,

I think I remember reading in one of John Carlson's (Pentax USA photo product mgr) threads on DPR that the WR kit lenses were going to be released at about the same time as the K-7 body. I don't recall anything about the BG.

Yea, it would make sense to release the WR lens at the same time as the body. The question is when will the body be released. I hope there won't be any delays.
