That 120,000,000 combinations... available in Japan. In the US we'll probably get black, white, and red. :-)

I'm guessing that might be K-s like people were guessing.

Called K-z and all about colors again? Probably the K-5/K-01 Sony sensor, otherwise the same old. That it?

...A little excessive on the combinations there...I can see the marketing ppl now..."oh boy, those dozen colors made the K-r a hit, let's try 120 million colors and see if that gives us 10 million times the sales!"

Seriously though, will it be built like legos to allow all those colors? Will we be buying a body color then the addon "bottom parts color pack for $19.99"?

Lol, I dont want more chic marketing, give me innovation! Then again, if this funds Pentax's FF efforts...go purple purple red brown camo green white pink camera on aisle 1!

I received this image today of what appears to be an advertising for the Pentax K-r successor
Did I mention that the viral marketing campaigns by Pentax start to become annoying?

So I take it more reliable info will be leaked within a few days?

A blurred-out image isn't much to work with. Plus, it's annoying that the fancy color crap is Japan-only, because it's otherwise a fairly good marketing idea.

Not so far fetched as you seem to think. Perhaps you missed these photos in the past?

You can have any color you like, as long as it's black.

It's not a blurred K-5, nor a SF-1. It's clearly a picture of a gorilla.

Perfect! That quote is on my coffee mug! I was once inspired to purchase a '94 Chevy Impalla SS because the 2-page ad in Motor Trend informed me that there were just three color choices: black, black or black.

Oh, and P.S. the photo wasn't intentionally blurred, it was just shot with a Kr under tungsten lighting. LOL!!! (sorry, couldn't help myself)
