What is diffrent from single and twin lens, do you just get extra zoom?

And do you put 2 lens together at the same time?

Never heard that concept before, but from the thread name I draw the conclusion that "Single lens kit" means that you get one kit lens with the body (probably a Kiron 18-55 mm) and "Twin lens kit" means that you get two lenses with the body, the 18-55 and one more like 50-200 mm. You cannot mount them at the same time, you'll have to use one at a time.

Gurbakash-

The idea of a two lens kit is that you purchase the camera with two lenses. In the case of Pentax, one lens, will usually be the kit lens, the Pentax 18-55mm lens. The second lens, will be the Pentax 50-200mm lens.

Therefore with those two lenses, you will be able to cover (in 35mm terms) focal lengths of 27mm to 300mm. Or stated in words: you will have wide angle through telephoto capability.

I recommend you to buy the twin lens of GX-1L because usually the twin lens kit will cost you less than that you buy one standardkit plus the 50-200mm len.

Just fyr, the price of50-200mm len in the market is around 250$
