But really, I already have enough K-01s.
Wait, what? Weren't you the one who - just hours ago - was egging me on to acquire yet another K-01 body???

Would you buy an American Flag K-01?
But keep in mind, making it in red white and blue fits so many flags! They can make it in this colour theme and market it all over the world.
See here for a list:

Yeah, but - so far as I know - I'm the only idiot outside the Pentax offices with ALL of the colors (at least until the Smurf came along, and... LBA/CBA is a harsh mistress). But if they start pump out colors like the K-x/r/30/50, I'm going to have to say enough's enough.

THoog, you should take a bunch of studio-type photos of the K-01s arranged in different patterns. When Pentax sees it, they will feel obliged to send you a free smurftax

I wish... If that were true, I should have already gotten a bag or a hat for all the K-01 "lensporn" I've posted!

Todd,
Pentax could easily sell thousands of these to every freshman at Carolina, every wannabe Tarheel fan on the East Coast, and every parent of a new baby boy. Only problem, no one sells Pentax in North Carolina despite logos on the B&M's websites. Maybe Jim Malcolm needs to contact the UNC Chapel Hill bookstore.

The yellow is still the best looking one! I bet that we haev seen the bottom of the market on pricing for the K-01 due to this. I'm glad I bought one!

Oh dear, I am not sure. I love the yellow, but I am actually thinking that it would look great in a 2-body kit next to the blue.

With those two, and the Limited lenses, nobody would mistake me for a "pro" - and yet, I'd be equipped to take better pictures than most pro's......(if only the skills would follow, that is....)

Certainly. People think that the look of a camera does not matter, but this camera actually makes people look good. Either they smile at this funny camera, or they do not care about such a toy. Even when I put the 200mm on it, they do not take it seriously. Really great. Somewhat reluctantly, I have to admit I am in love.
