It will be interesting to see what is the production date on these. It seems possible (even likely) that Pentax had planned from the beginning to offer the K-01 in many colors, and made limited runs of some of them before discontinuing the camera, and so are still selling stock from the original production run... I mean, it would be great (and a very good sign) if these are a new batch, but what are the chances?

Pentax USA intends to market "Custom Colors" cameras (Q7, K500, etc.) in college towns in the school colors. Not NCAA licensed, just the color combinations.

Clearly they need a darker Blue and White version.

Really?? That sounds awesome! They should do the same in Europe with soccer teams
Maybe some sports leagues will want in on it and will allow the use of their logos (for a cut of the profit of course)

Yep - Jim Malcolm said that (about the Q, anyway, and inferred about other colored bodies) in the Q Users' Conference Call April 30th.

As far as actual team logo, licensing is a big deal. The leagues control them and they're VERY particular about who gets a license.

Perhaps Pentax has decided that K-01 is for low-end K-mount in Japan, while the K-500 is their direction for other countries.
stupid other countries (where I live in)

If only a service existed, whereby an item could be transported from one country to another, then such regrets would no longer happen.

I may be on to something, stay tuned for a bit while I file a patent application....

I think I posted that in this thread before we got into the names thing in the other thread. But Great Minds think alike, and all that.

Well, it sure wasn't I, who came up with "Smurf", I had honestly thought that it was you also in the other thread, wasn't it?
