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.

Are you sure she doesn't read this forum?

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.

I think that Ricoh should offer the camera in any darn color a buyer wants. It just means they throw different color pellets in the injection molding hopper or they spray it a different color. True... most of us would buy boring black but I bet there have been a lot of sales of the Q in Japan in many colors other than black. Henry Ford was wrong about black and GM was right...

Recent financial outcomes might tend to challenge your assertion.

Well, maybe... I suspect that most of those color sales are in Japan (which I suspect is where Ricoh does all their market studies) but if I could have bought my K3 in a military field color I would have done so. Same thing for telephoto lenses.
