Silver is definitely cool but I really don't think the price is justified. The silver k5 looks rad with black lenses anyways I figure, so I think the silver primes are reserved for only the most ocd of us.
There are some folks on here (not naming names) that have a black set and silver set of the FA ltd series.

15mm.
And the 35. Maybe the "old trio" are seeing a slump in sales recently?

FYI... I just got off the phone with Pentax, and at least what they told me was that my 70mm will be shipping UPS Ground either today or tomorrow! I'm not going to count on that being accurate, but at least I'm hopeful

Now if I could just find a silver 31...
Amy......Prodigital 2000 on ebay has the 31mm in Silver listed pretty regularly. They don't have it right now, but they did a week or so ago. You could give them a call and see when they expect stock. I got my 77 Silver from them and the service was great.

LOL
I did call them. They are out of stock with no ETA. I know the one you're talking about that the had because I was watching it until it sold. Unfortunately, my tax refund's timing was off!

When I got my 77 from them I had just missed another one on eBay. They didn't have a good eta on more stock, but it turned out to be only two weeks so hopefully they'll get another 31. I really want to get one of these as well, but want to go a little wider first with the 21. Too many nice lenses and not enough cash!

70mm Silver is shipping from Pentax today... I received a UPS tracking number already. I expect I'll have it Monday or Tuesday.

70 Silver is on UPS truck and coming today...
I ordered a 21 Silver too, and it's still showing as "pending approval - to be picked" on the Pentax Webstore...

And progress on yours Paul?

I cannot decide if I want all three silver DAs or not.
I have a silver K-5 and a black DA 40. Together they look good. A silver lens would -of course- also look good, maybe better. However, if someday I would have a black "main" camera then the silver lens on a black body looks IMHO a little strange. I also have a black K-x as second body...

Silver lens:
+Exclusive and expensive look
+Fits my camera
+scratches are hardly visible
-more expensive
-looks not so good on a black body
-only available for a short time, so I have to hurry with my decision

Black lens:
+Standard, but still sexy, look
+Fits silver and black cameras
+cheaper
+if something happens to the lens, i can easily replace it
-scratches are visible as silver spots

However, I have the feel that my silver K-5 needs their silver frieds and I dont know what to do. Please help me, else I buy them all. LBA alarm !!!! :-)

Not yet. They indicated May 21st as the next potential delivery date, but that was a definite "maybe"

I'm going for a mixture. 21, 43 and 70 in Silver. 35 Macro and 55 DA* in black.

*Fingers crossed* Paul... I know you need yours soon! (ps... my status changed on the 21 just a little while ago to "auto cc approval"... a good sign!)

That is a good sign. Unfortunately when I ordered mine, I did it as guest so I can't track it online. I'm probably going to call again tomorrow and see if they have an update. I'm going for a mix as well with the 21, 43 and 77. Will probably add the 15 at some point as well.

You guys inspired me. I just ordered the silver 21 and 70 from Pentax. Looking forward to receiving them. I already have a black 40, so I held off on that one.
