Thing is, Pentax hasn't announced it yet! Plus, it's just a plain old Q with a different color!

But everyone knows that Silver is the most special color to Pentax of all! Imagine seeing a FA* lens on the Q, now it'll match!

Yup. I know its just a new color for the Q but in the context of 2 new cameras, multiple new K mount lens announcements, a Q-to-K adapter, tethering, etc. I thought this just added icing to the cake - you know, the cake that all the Pentax is DOOMED folks are eating about now.

I made your link a little more patriotic- hope you don't mind. Plus, I think you'll appreciate the humor! Good luck on getting a silver Q if that's what you're after

I'd say it looks better than my X10, I love the looks of it! If it had a viewfinder I would seriously try to own one. I hope someone here gets one, great looking camera.

Make it just a little larger, put a viewfinder on it, and a K5 sensor...and Pentax couldn't make enough of them to keep up with the sales.

Regards!
