I agree.

However, I proposed a slightly different color variation: the black version, but with the bottom shell and upper shell and all upper shell elements all silver. IMHO, this would look as serious and slightly more interesting / retro, a bit like the K-5 Silver.
I will prefer that too .

Petition Approved!

Do collect the design fees from Pentax for this


Much ado about nothing over the design when all black works best

I think the pdf has an all black k01 as one of the choices.

I absolutely agree with the desire for an ALL black version. Why they didn't do that is perplexing. Pentax, please include an all black one (not limited edition)...

Their idea of all black is actually black with silver. The PDF is describing the main body panel and color of the rubber.

As it stands now:
black case + silver top + black rubber
white case + black top + black rubber
black case + silver top + yellow rubber

If you buy both the silver and the black version, I wonder how hard it would be to swap out all the components so that one is all silver, and the other all black?
Technically, I think that is a "white" version. Pentax USA lists it as such.

I thought of the same exact idea. I think it might work depending on how the flash area attaches to the rest of the body (it has a seam).

I'd want to do it just to prove a point, but who really wants to reward their odd color choices in buying two of them?



Pentax, take note that most photographers are not color blind. You had it done properly with the limited Silver K-5, what happened?

The colour schemes proposed here are all improvements, AFAIC, but there is no saving the face of this camera without removing that hideous lens. YMMV.

+1 for All Black... Given the fact that they have the components already tooled (used on the silver version), this should be an easy implementation for Pentax. I personally think the camera has a much better look in all black. Quite frankly I did not like the camera when I saw it this week, but I am warming up to it now that I see it in all black.

Everyone knows that wearing black is 'slimming'.

(Except celebrity designers, apparently.... )

Therefore, another vote for the all black version!

I'll throw myself on that one and take the hit - you can send your XS lenses to me and I will deal with them safely! No. No need to thank me, it's all in a days work.

I fully agree: all black looks much more dignified. All black and a viewfinder would turn this into an excellent camera.
