On the contrary. Polls should be embraced!

I said that to a girl named Kowalski once. She didn't find it an acceptable attitude! LOL

Well I'm waiting for a Silver K-5 (hope it will come to me) and I have at the no Silver lenses and as it seems this year no spare cash for a Silver lens.

That not only sucks, but it is silly aswell, a black lens on a Silver camera.

Why would it be silly? Back in the days you had silver (ok metal coloured) cameras with black leather bits on them and black lenses. I think that's very nice combo!

While the various colors don't mean much to me, Pentax must figure they are getting some sales out of doing this. Way back in the day, before cameras were made of plastic, the alumunium finish with the "leather" was cheaper than the all black model. The retro look is popular these days. People are buying the Olympus Pen just because it looks cool.
