the amazing technicolor lens-stripes

OK so Limiteds are now red - I'm fine with that, I always think of red as a Pentax color whatever others use. Curiously though, the 55-300WR got one too. Earlier models have the green stripe, and we'll see if that changes over on the other WR models at some point... or maybe all DA not DAL since I see that the DAL 50-200WR and 18-55WR have a silver-grey stripe! The roadmap shows the macros with a silver-grey FL marker, but is that just a coincidence since the 100WR has no stripe (yet)? And DA* gets the gold standard.

Maybe in a year we'll have enough changeover to have the stripes as easy ID, but not yet. I'd love to understand...
Adam, do you have the color decoder to this yet?

They should sell different color bands so you can mix and match with your navy/red/white/black/silver/fruit salad body - or just to confuse people.
