K5 Silver availability

Hi!

Do You have any idea why the K5 Silver is maybe discontinued?
I checked some online stores and not found any on stock.

It was my plan to buy one during the summer, it looks like i will miss it.

Thanks in advance,

Akos

So,now no silver Bodys in production.
At this time,absolute NO K-5 is in production.
Only K-r is in Production,Sony is not producing the 16 MP Sensor for D7000 and K-5 this time.

Get them while you can, price will steadily go up for a bit as supplies are running low...

That's rubbish info. We can get both silver and black K-5s readily here in Singapore and there are ample stocks. Who says there's a shortage?

The Silver one was very limited to north america (thats for certain, authorized pentax dealers in north america were allocated a set number of units by pentax sales volume, and allocated these units only once), so the info on the silver one is correct - don't know about the black one though.

Hows this for squeezing some profit out of something:

Amazon.com: Used and New: Pentax K-5 Silver Limited Edition 16.3mp Digital Camera Body (14898)

I am actually thinking about that one listing in VA...
