Does anyone know if the kit lens 18-55mm which comes with the Samsung GX20 is the same as the MK2 version which ships with the K20????

There was a thread on this a while ago, and I think if you look at the specification on the Samsung website - it does indeed have a different number of elements to the MkII lens on the Pentax site.

However I haven't actually checked this myself...
Very much an amateur.

I checked it out, the Samsung lens is the same optical formula as the original D-Xenon or the DA Mk 1...
