What color is your K-30?

Simple question. Just want to get an idea of what seems to be the most popular color, at least within PF members.

I have a blue one. I try as hard as I can to make sure that all of my outdoor gear is blue, because I hate outdoor kits that are a mish-mash of different colors. My bike, panniers, 60L backpack, gaiters, snowshoes, rain jacket . . . everything is blue. I could only find white ski poles at Value Village to use with my snowshoes, so i bought some blue spraypaint to color it so it will match the rest of my gear. So of course, the camera had to be blue as well.

EDIT: When this poll was made I only knew of three colors: Black, White, Blue. A few months later, Pentax decided to release a bunch of other colors. Red seems to be a popular one. I have no way of editing this poll to add at least an "other" option. Sorry folks who own a K30 that isn't Black, White, or Blue! :-\

Good results so far. I expected the black to beat the other colors.

I wonder how much this is because the black was offered in a better kit for the first few months of the K30's release.

Earl, you should post a photo of all your matchy-matchy blue gear.

I thought the white ones looked pretty sharp, but mine is black.

Black because of the 18-135 deal. It would have been blue if that deal was available. But if other colors would have been available, who knows? It was a good choice as the 18-135 has become a favorite lens.

Well, this is a picture of my hiking backpack, snowshoes, and shovel, right before my new years hike. All blue.

I'll find occasion to take a picture of my blue bikes soon.

Black because I got a good deal on it. Could have got blue or white. I like white but can't help thinking it will get dirty quickly. I would really have liked red but it was not available.

WOW ! I am a chick and I don't match or even try to match my gear. Well I did get a blue camera bag to match my camera, and my husband made fun of me. He said " You don't even try that hard to match your clothing but you want your camera to match your bag." My snowboard does not match my snow pants or jacket at all.

I got the blue DSLR because I really want to stand out. I am so sick of all the same old colors for phones and cameras. I like a little spice in my life. Other countries had way more options red, yellow, orange, and much more. How fun is that. Why does a camera have to be so boring and black? We are artists at heart give us something funky. Maybe its just me.

I haven't pulled the trigger on mine yet, and I keep wavering back and forth between blue and white. I really, really wanted a stormtrooper K-x and wound up getting a blue since it was on sale at the time. Now that old desire is creeping back in but is tempered by my love for my old blue K-x.

Decisions, decisions! I only have a few days left until I fire off the order to B&H!

I first got a stormtrooper K-r, then a panda K-01, and then replaced the K-r with a stormtrooper K-30, it fits well with my white DA 35
