Love the photos, Frank! Thanks. I assume all those colors will be not be available in the States. Oh well, I still like blue the best, but the silver is pretty cool, too!

Really looking forward to your impressions of the camera!!!!!

I like the diarrhoeic gold one myself, even if it does look like shiny metallic baby poo.

Another diabolically clever marketing ploy?

My personal color preference on the K30:

1) blue / red (Both of those are droolworthy. And thanks to the WR construction, that's not a problem!)
2) black
3) silver / white (tie. very nice.)
4) green
5) brown
6) orange (mmm... not a huge fan)
7) yellow (definitely not for me. )

Haven't got much time to play it yet. All I can say that this is a great little camera, most closer to a K-5 than to a K-r.
Frankly Frank, I don't see anything in common with a K-r. The K-30 has a lot in common with a K-5, with even a few significant improvements (AF, focus peaking, AA capability). Shocking value for the price. A feature that I would really miss is the metering switch. I don't care about AF Select, I use the center point or MF. I expect to replace K-x with a K-30 for more buttons, especially TAv mode. I'll keep the K20D.
