Just so you know, the Silver Edition with the 40mm XS lens was the second offering of a Silver Edition. This version is the exact same as a regular K-5 aside from the color. There was also an earlier version (a year earlier) also limited to 1,500 worldwide that had a redesigned grip and shock-resistant, scratchproof reinforced glass on the rear LCD and top status panels.
Thanks, sunny16. The article I read was from DPReview that seemed to indicate that this was the second limited edition of silver K-5, but did not offer much information about the first. From the replies (much appreciated) I should not want to pay much of a premium for the silver, if any at all. Thanks. Glenn
