It's a K50 rainbow....

I just happened by B&H to see what the order/preorder status is on the new bodies. I'm not in the market at the moment....still on honeymoon with a K5. BUT!!!!!! I was staggered to see about 7 pages of product offering for Pentax DSLR's. Curious, I made it past the first few pages and found myself in K50 Wonka Factory. Pukealicious colors and tones!. Pentax is going to catch customers like fishing lures catch fishermen. (Yes, I know what I just typed. Think about it.)
Now all Pentax needs is a marketing blitz. I know, I'm laughing too.

I'm not being dour. Really, it is pretty exciting.

K3 now.

There are so many color options that it is impossible to decide. So one would end up with the black model in the end

The color configurators on the USA and Japan Pentax websites are showing colors that are bit artificial. Notably the USA configurator has a blue background, which influences your color perception. An alternative is to get the specs overview PDF from the UK or German Pentax website.
It contains pictures of all the 120 color-combinations on a white background (and more).

Now there's a thought! I wonder if they fixed it in this generation of K5s?
