looks like a childs toy in a way, and might be fine to carry in Japan, but might get scoffed at in U.S. carrying that
you can get scoffed at carrying a K-5. :ugh: business as usual id say.

Well the funny thing is, it kind of pays to be odd man out, especially with a nice Camera like the K-r and K-5

Well, in that case, I wouldn't worry about it! Solution is to carry around a really good RAW Photo or JPEG that's good, and they'll back off

You mean, like: "Oh yeah? Well, look at this data card! It's got a great RAW photo on it. So, back off, man!"

I'm skeptical.

My wife is japanese and she loves this colour combination. She doesn't represent the whole of japanese population of course, but I thought I'd chime in

And thanks for the explanation Christine. That's most enlightening

Pentax has had strange limited edition cameras for years:

I know there are at least a few others from 20+ years ago.

But officer! "This is Not a Robot!" I think they will buy that, especially if you say it with a weird look in your eye and a strange giggle
