Limited colors?

I have been looking at the Limited prime lenses and seems that not all of them have a silver edition; is that true? As far as I can see there are:

15, 20, 31, 35, 40, 70, 77mm versions but not all are silver.

I am going to be getting my first prime but would like to be part of the same color family!

To date, the 15 and 35 DA Limited lenses do not have a Silver version. The others (including the 43, which you did not list) all do. I am, however, not sure whether the FA Limiteds (31,43,77) are available NEW in silver in any region -- here in the United States I think they are all black.

Minor correction: 21 not 20.

Out of the 3 amigos 31-43-77, I only have the 43 in silver. It is beautiful even on black body I just couldn't find the other 2 in silver though.

Thank you both. I have found that the FA's are available in sexy silver here in Australia:

Pentax Lenses | Browse our range of Pentax Lenses

There is:

FA 31, 43, 77 available in standard and silver (in Aus)
DA 15, 21, 35 (macro), 40, 70 in standard and silver (bold)

So it would seem that they may yet bring out a 15 and 35 silver version?

My dilemma is that I am looking at getting two Limited as my first primes and I would like the 35 and probably the 70 but both silver! Looks like unless anyone has spotted a 35 silver or heard rumors I might have to wait.
