It will be made only per 500 lenses...
Really? I can't imagine them lasting long in that quantity, and I bet they will be trading for a premium 2nd hand.

I was expecting something like shock, dust, water-proof titanium body K-5, but I guess I was hoping too much.

Yes, I am fully aware of that. I was just trying to exaggerate my expectation a bit.

But.....a camera body that can be used as a bludgeoning weapon would be very nice....

fwiw.. fyi.... pentax imaging usa does not have any information/knowledge that the new silver k-5 will have newer firmware installed to address the focus issues which has affected many, but not all, users.... they have no specific release date for any firmware for existing k-5's...........
they also mention that this focus issue is being discussed on many forums but not formally acknowledged by pentax .... old news but their response is that if ya got a problem, send it in..
i'd love to have the silver k-5 for looks alone... the newer grip and hardened lcd is nice... but if this beauty turns into a focus compromised beast..... well, i guess i'm not goin' down that road..... like many others, i will wait for the new prospective firmware release and if it corrects the problem... please let it be soon, my tax refund is coming.......soon !!! keeping my chin up...still feel that the glass is half full..... dave m
