Pentax K-5 Limited Silver Now Available

in extremely limited quality · 03-14-2012 · By PF Staff in Pentax News

Two weeks ago, Pentax announced another limited silver edition of the K-5, which comes with a special silver version of the new DA 40mm F2.8 XS lens launched alongside the K-01 mirrorless camera.

The silver K-5 camera is now available for pre-order on a first-come, first served basis at B&H photo and Adorama, two of the few US retailers that manage to stock nearly all Pentax products.  You can also order the camera directly from the Pentax web store. Only a handful of these cameras will be sold in the US- we believe it will be in the very low 100's, so get your orders in now if you want this!

For more information on the K-5, we recommend that you take a look at our K-5 in-depth review and Canon 7D comparative review.

The new DA 40mm XS lens was recently listed in our lens database, and we provide some sample photos in the K-01 in-depth review.

Time to cancel this order. Definitely not paying a $350 premium for silver. $150 was bad enough.

Is the k-5 Limited edition only available for US/CAN. I can't choose any other countries in the pentaxstore :(

I've updated the post to reflect this. They put no notice in the external listing when they in fact should have done so!

I placed an order for one earlier today. I received an email from Adorama saying it was still on back order. :(

jonk- Pentax makes a "special" version of just about every non-P&S camera. You're get cool looks by picking one up, but not exclusivity, as you'd think :(

Not really...the first limited silver K-5 has different grip and better LCD plate
I can only think of this special edition as the normal K-5 in silver

This makes my first release Silver edition K-5 less limited.
