A careful read between the lines of the Japanese small print in the link in the first post indicates that 5% of the boxes of the prestige k3 will include a MIJ silver 31 ltd. Ricoh were just having to wait for that lens production run to come in so they could be added to the box.

Just placed an order for a copy of the prestige k3 so I will let you all know if I scored the extra bonus.

I wish....

Someone neglected to order the critical Prestige Gunmetal colored parts. OOPS.

Well, clearly the aliens needed something to store those FF bodies in! Boxes are in short supply on Planet Zog.
Must be D-FA boxes then...

Have had a small amount of email communication with a rep from Pentax Australia who stated that ten (10) units will be in the first consignment to Australia, almost all of which have been pre-ordered. Just saying.

I have a premonition that this Prestige colour scheme is one borrowed from the new Q-S1 line colour scheme, and that all new K mount cameras to substitute / replace K-50 will have them as well.

So it is to be expected than newer, entry line into the K-mount is about to be announced sporting this colour scheme, and that may be the news for the Fotokina. K-3 tech goes down into the lower end bodies and is painted in new colours.

Nope, you're not the only one. Well, my wife knows, she just doesn't care. I prefer black because I'm an introvert.

A musician friend of mine does that with guitars. All of 'em are black to fool the wife. Sometimes he'll have me order them for him so it doesn't show up on his credit card. Then we'll meet at a clandestine location to do the guitar / cash swap. It's like a drug deal going down. LOL... ;-P

Since I AM the wife, I can buy any color camera I want... but I just don't want to pay extra for it, though the Prestige looks lovely. How about red?

I would always go for the black and silver.... except it usually costs more. Mrs eljamoquio is fully supportive of more camera crap.
