What does that mean? 500 total or 1 out of every 500?

Sign me up for second in line!

This does look pretty sweet. I'd be interested to hear from someone that has seen one in person. I'm hoping it's not a painted finished, but rather a powder coating or raw metal.

Isnt it normal for the rest of the world?? Norway has a 25% VAT , kind of explains it.. So I could import it myself from Usa for instance, but I would have to pay 25% VAT on the freight and the goods ..And then I would loose a pretty good warranty that we have in Norway ..

Yeah, what the heck does that mean? And where does the information come from?

edit: according to the Pentax UK press release, only 50 silver K-5s will be available there. That's pretty damn Limited. I vaguely remember something about the number "1500" being touted as a US supply, but I can't find a reference to it anymore.

silver-on-plastic rarely seems to do anything but look cheap.
If I'm not mistaken we are talking about silver-on-magnesium-alloy, not plastic.
