I know I'll get flamed for this but I don't like them at all.

Black or nothing for me.

I'll likely buy my next LTD black because the two I have are black... but they look mighty nice. I might have to consider a silver 70...

Geeez, Tom, you're such an old fuddy-duddy (and I'm with you 100%!)

I think they should spend more time designing some new (& fast) DA ltd lenses, not playing around with the colours.

Does anyone else think the 40 looks like a UFO in that photo?

I agree this is good and painless marketing for Pentax, but the DA Ltd lineup could certainly use some new focal lengths.

Yeah the da40 looks weird in that picture but that do look hot. I'd definitely get one of those over the regular black versions. But new focal lengths would make the line up more enticing.

I think silver 21 might very well make it to my line up I have my 3 FA Ltds in silver and 24 isn't exact match but we'll see....

One thing that I would have kept is the green circle, it would have looked even more distinctive that way.

I do wonder why they are doing this. Is this a sign that their mirrorless body will be silver, with a K-mount?

K-5's coming out in silver.
Plus it's another cool reason to go Pentax.

I think it's awesome. Pentax's focus on form and function is wonderfully refreshing in a world of bulky cameras. If I could start again, I would absolutely love the silver set... although, without a silver camera, I feel as if it would draw too much attention (one of the things I like most about the 40 is how discrete it is).
