Here in the uk there are only the 3 colors that are available in north america. I went with black as i didn't like the shiny plastic of the blue even though i preferred the colur. A matte blue k30 would have been a no brainer for me.

As I recall in better pics the purple is actually more of a coppery super dark maroon than a true purple.
I'll take the dull olive drab thanks, its different without attracting attention.

Now if they would only release more on the K5 level of stuff.
I can see not stocking the full line of colored K30's here buts its plain stupid to not allow them to be special ordered for a price.

Was in Japan in October last year and was looking at "plasticmodels" of some of the colors for the the K-30 and I must say the matte olive green or matte orange was really nice and would work really well for me
And imo the yellow K-01 is looking good so why not a yellow K-30.

Thought the grey models looked good in the product shots, but in person I wasn't impressed.

On the other hand, the matte olive green is stunning. The matte blue and orange versions are nice too.

Please don't stain K-serie to LOMO. It is the inherent of Pentax, representing serious photography. This is our attitude.
I rather like the champagne/silver finish on my FA* lenses and the cream colour on my F*300, and they were (are) pretty serious (they cost serious money, after all). On the other hand, those large white Canon "pro" lenses are so vulgar, no "serious" photographer could possibly be seen with one. Right?

wait?

Is there any validity to the rumors of more colors? I really, really like the matte olive one and would hate to buy the black one(maybe the white one) only to have the matte olive appear on shelves in a month.
I'm willing to wait if there's a chance, but if no chance, I'm ready to pull the trigger on a black or white one.

I think you will have to go to your local authorized Pentax store and make them order one from Pentax.

Interesting. I wonder if there will be a price bump to accommodate these extra steps and the "custom" ordering. I also assume this would be for the body only and not something people could get as part of a kit purchase.
