Dewalt Router with Hard Case?

Does this router still come with the Hard Case or bag? A friend recently purchased one and it came with a bag. If so, is there any way I can get the Hard Case?

Does this have an LED light?

I'm looking at some different routers and I'm nearly sold on this DeWalt, what will seal the deal is if this has a LED light to light up the bit area so that it's easier to see while working. I've seen a Bosch MRC23EVSK that has this feature but the unit is nearly $100 more. I read in one review that indicates an LED backlight but I do not see it listed on DeWalts web site or anywhere else.
