It's certainly a very attractive unit.
Maybe I should have ordered one after all.
Sigh.

Until it gets repaired, then it may look like all the other black ones.

I stayed away because I wouldn't have even opened the box. Witihin a year there will only be 200 pristine copies. In ten years there will only be 100. If the K3 is a true smash the Silver will have collector value - and I hate keeping unopened boxes on a shelf (my children had some Beanie Babies that they sold right, to the contrary).

Frustrating, but I'm confident it will be worth the wait. I'll just have to continue slumming it with a K-5 IIs, K-5 and K-01 in the meantime....

And when it does arrive it will most definitely NOT be staying in the box. It might get a non-identical twin brother though

A silver K-3 with grip will certainly stand out in the pit.
Do you have something like a silver FA 77 to go with it?

Yeah, my Silver K-3 is going to look great with my silver 77 FA. And to think, when I bought the silver 77, it was only because it was $40 less than the black.
