Ouch!
Different strokes for different folks I guess. As for me, I would not be caught dead with one of these...

Oh come on now. Even in Alabama the black / khaki camo would be cool. At least my friends in Mobile would think so.

(ducks from the flames coming my way) ;-)



P.S. Personally I don't care for any of these non traditional color scheme cameras. All black or the retro silver / black are fine.

Yes, a very nice strap, I hate these red markings on the 'normal' ones. Do they sell this apart?

Hmm...I suppose there would be some 'hunters' and such that would. I don't know any of them though.

Now if they came out with college football colors, that would send sales way up here and elsewhere too I bet.

I can think of several words to describe them. "Cool" isn't one of them.
I can't believe this is helping Pentax position itself as a Pro/Serious enthusiast level camera.

I agree......Why would Pentax partner with Tower Records for anything? Has anyone actually bought a CD in the last 3 years? I had a minor surgical procedure a couple years ago and talking with the Dr., he had NEVER bought a CD......Pentax really knows how to take great ideas and make them suck.....maybe an Amazon.com model or a iTunes special? Or, all black or silver? Like Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Mamiya, etc.......but we will exclude the Hasselbad Ferrari special edition....

Well for my few cents worth, if these colours were the only ones that Pentax DSLR's were in, I would pass on by. Wouldn't be seen with such. In fact I would say for God's sake Pentax spend the money on quality control and stop playing about at colours just for the sake of it. Sorry but I find this news sad.
