K-r & K-5 kit combinations incl 35 mm F2.4

At Amazon the 18-55 mm lenses of the K-r kits don't seem to have the same color as the body (any more) like they used to and still do with K-x kits, instead the are just black.

On the other hand (at least in Japan) the 35 mm F2.4 also seems to come in all colors.

Or will K-r be same as K-x?
- And we additionally for the seperate 35 mm F2.4 lens, we will just be able to select which color we want (or maybe even only in Japan).

Which lens + body kit combination will become available?!?!?!?!?!
- Who knows?
- When will Pentax tell us?

Note: As far as I can see, despite same release date, the 35 mm F2.4 is not yet on Amazon...

Small add-on / correction:
- The K-5 seems (of course) to come with WR kit lenses, so 18-55 and 18-135 (!!!)
- Probably 35 mm F2.4 won't be WR...

The 35 mm for sure not, since it will be a cheap lens, everything has been done to reduce the price (no quick shift, no metal mount, ...)

While I think it would be smart for Pentax to sell the colored versions of the new 35mm lens, I don't see that happening for a while. Eventually, I imagine the store would get them, but I doubt they would be part of a kit as there are too many combinations.

If you want to pay full price and then some, you could attempt to make an order to the Japanese pentax store online... I don't know how the warranty would be though. Has anyone bought from the Japanese store before?
