Now will it come in kit with the pancake lens?

Anti-shock mode is a supplement to a remote trigger, not an alternative. Anti-shock lifts the mirror by a preset time before the exposure is made. The point is to prevent the camera suffering mirror (not shutter as I incorrectly said originally) vibration. Even with remote control, I would use anti-shock in many situations.
