Yellow is a pretty color. Am on the look-out for a yellow strap for the K-01 (and would prefer if it was a Pentax strap, actually, does such exist?)

The strap look like some kind of small dog leash or purse. Shouldn't be too difficult to find a yellow one

Not from Pentax, I'm afaid, but with a Nikon strap and an Black Sharpie, you could have THIS:





(digital mock-up, I haven't actually done it - but only because I use a wrist strap with my bricks)

Not a fan, but bright colors aren't really my style. Don't think I would ever pay Leica prices so I guess it's a moot point....but if I did I would go with a classic low profile body. Not sure I could imagine shooting street photography with a bright yellow camera.

LA is opening that new Leica store....Im just waiting for Posh Spice, Paris or someone to be toting around a $4K Leica and not even know how to use it

From Steve Huff's review of the K-01 - Leica Digilux 1 vs, Pentax K-01. Already done that.
