Black Jack!
Which also hints at the great gamble Pentax took. And lost

Naaah, where's the exclusive strap & the matching lens?
I don't know... to me (to my taste) they chose to dark a grey for the grey version...

Wait... what? It's a bright, metallic silver. I don't know how it could be much lighter. Pentax USA even occasionally mixed up the product pictures of the silver body for the white body.

EDIT: I just realized you were talking about the Prestige K-3, not the K-01.



(To find one, I had to search for 'silber' = German for 'silver').

Wow I like the looks of that one there THoog.
You should look for that thread of K-01 with various lenses mounted! It looks great with modern as well as decades-old lenses!

Generally, it's been referred to as "Classic Black". I lobbied unsuccessfully for "Black Friday" or "Black Friday Black" (because that's the day/sale in the US when the K-01 suddenly went from a failure to a hot item)(that, and I like saying "Black. Friday Black" - like "Bond. James Bond").

That's the first time I've ever seen the silver body called grey. I call mine "Yerp". (Because it was only sold in Europe, and I'm a 'Murican.) For the white body, I prefer "Panda" or "Pandatrooper", because it looks nothing like a curvy white plastic DSLR.
I like the Pandatrooper for the Black and White K-01.

For the Grey K-01, what about calling it "Robocop."

What do you think?

I like "Darth Vader" for the black K-01. That's what I've been calling mine since I got it.

Mine makes enough loud sounds when it focus hunts.

K-01 Pro.

'cos Pro cameras are black right.

I'm tempted to hunt out a secondhand silver one, and swap the silver bits off my Black unit on to the Silver unit, and vice versa.
Then I can have a 'K-01 Pro Black Edition' and 'K-01 Collectors Edition Silver'

I wonder how many K-01 silver are being sold since its launch? I have never seen used silver K-01 in ebay.
