Are the K-30 kit lenses weather resistant?

I'm hoping to purchase the K-30 soon as my first DSLR. Can someone tell me if the kit lenses included with the Pentax K-30 with 18-55mm and 50-200mm DAL Lens Kit from Amazon are Weather Resistant?

It depends on which kit you buy tbh. There are two variants of the lenses that it ships with; the "DA L" which isn't weather sealed, and the WR which is.

A better option might be the K-30 DA 18-135 WR kit, which will give you a catch-all walkabout lens WITH weather sealing.

Thanks. It seems to be just the DAL kits available from Amazon so that's disappointing. Would love the lens you mentioned but it's out of my price range for the time being.

Amazon do have k30 with Weather resistant 18-55 but its cheaper from SRS who also have the twin lens kit you where looking at in weather resistant versions

I've found the K30 with the 18-135 WR kit elsewhere for a good price, so think I'm gong to bite the bullet tomorrow.
