The K-5 really isn't aimed at the market that wants colors. The most we'll see in the K-5 will probably be the silver/black "limited" combo like we saw on the K-7.

I think if I was going to go for a color body, I would like something like this.

I'd like one in leaf design camo, though I might leave it lying around and not be able to find it again !

Are you saying the K-x and the K-r are toys?

Maybe they'll be able to develop an absolutly transparent one, so you can't see it at all!

No doubt we will see a silver one in a few months time once the hype dies down.

Hopefully that is all.

IIRC, there was a lot of very positive response (including from me) regarding the limited edition silver K-7, and I suspect it sold out very quickly.

I was a bit disappointed they didn't make silver a regular color for the K-5, and include some of the other enhancements, like the reinforced LCD, while they were at it. Oh well, I love my black K-5 anyway!
