Is the grip exactly the same as on the standard black K-5?
The side grip? No, it's different on the silver K-5. Supposedly slightly larger and better molded to fit your hand.

The battery grip? There's no limited edition silver battery grip for the K-5 as far as I know. That's unfortunate since I always use a battery grip.

Cool, I guess I win then.
Not really. I got 30 confirmation letters this morning. I had to send a email to them to let them cancel the duplicates.

I guess my credit card cannot afford 50000 purchase.

When I saw the K5 Silver Limited, i was wonder if they also launch Silver battery grip?

Ship date for the US?

UK mags are saying March 10th.

US mags are saying April.

Sigh, I was really hoping to get my pre-purchased K-5 Silver for the 59th Annual 12 Hours of Sebring (March 16-19th). I'm not looking for a loaner, just hoping to have a purchased K-5 unit for Sebring. My K20D isn't holding up much past the "physical event" last year (surprised it survived at all, long story), although it's still limping along.

Otherwise I have to toy with the idea of buying a black K-5 and canceling the silver purchase. I really can't afford to buy both, or at least the wife would kill me if I did. So I'd likely cancel my silver purchase, and I really don't want to.
