I'm going to reluctantly disbelieve this silver edition, based on the basic viewfinder (instead of the same as the K7 silver) and it not having the protective glass over the LCD
I was under the impression that the regular K-5 had tempered glass over the LCD.

I think they have always been plastic covers over the LCD instead of that recent K-7 silver edition...

This K-5 looks classy. I want one! (but probably would willing to pay the asking price until K-5 gets near $1000 for the body).

The grip makes me think it won't be offered outside of Japan, but Europe having the photos makes me think otherwise.

On the Italian Pentax forum pentaxiani.it a poster that is also a Pentax Pro Center Gold retailer has just posted that the K-5 silver will be available very soon, and that there will be a silver version of the DA 21, DA 40 and DA70 to complement it.

DPR just posted K-5 silver to be priced at $1699.95, but didn't say if that was for the body only. You guys think it's worth the increase for the redesigned grip, shock/scratch proof LCD, and silver coloring?

The Pentax Imaging store for the USA lists silver the same price as the black version.

I'm wondering what the deal is though as the Silver does look to have a few physical changes like the grip.
