Can buy it from here: Pentax Web Store
Thanks, alas there appears to be a disconcerting SGD $317 premium over the blue and white versions for some reason - $1250 vs $933. May be economies of scale I suppose. A body-only option would be good for those who already have the 18-55WR. Unboxed would even be fine as that unboxed black one at the top for $850 looks a good deal.

For those who may be interested, I contacted by Adorama and B&H customer service. Both have the blue K30 in stock as of this writing. Adorama has the glossy (crystal) version and B&H has the matte (silky) version. I ordered the K30 from B&H (unimpressive website - multiple things out of stock, no online orders on weekends, an order processing error, 8 days for free shipping vs 2 for Adorama) so we will see if the information on that is correct.

I vote for Blue

I've ordered a blue one on waiting for it)
  1. My favorite color
  2. It refers to ocean and blue sky holidays where its weather proofability will be top.
  3. offers a 50 discount on the Blue version
  4. Black is too conventional, White too exotic for a DSLR camera. To me, Blue is the perfect balance.

Too bad they didn't have the OliveGreen one on Amazon when I bought mine.
It would have gone so well with my camera backpack.
