It's an indication of Ricoh's target market.

Isn't it just a recolor? I see nothing else about it which is 'prestigious.'

Great color combo if you are in the A-Team though. I pity tha foo who wastes money on a recolored camera.

All fun and giggles aside () this means there will be no K-3II or new version of the higher end APS-C body if they are just now releasing a new color combo of the K-3 (as a new edition).

I think that is kind of lame.. the K-50 has 20 kabillion color combinations available but each of them isn't a fancypants edition.. just a different color combination.

I suspect we will see a new K-50 replacement more in line with the K-3 then.. *IF* there is a digital FF body it is looking more and more (to me at least) that it would be pretty similar to the K-3 since that seems to be the technology to which they are currently sticking.

That is.. released at Photokina.

This looks great! They should make this the standard colouring for Pentax cameras.

Of course, this is pure marketing. It gets the camera in the news again and that's good for awareness of Pentax.

I think it's a great sign. If they didn't have better news they would've pushed this one to photokina.
That depends on what they consider 'better' news. The fact that they consider a simple recolor as a new edition isn't giving me the warm fuzzies on their definition of 'better.'

At this point I simply hope for a price cut on lenses.. a significant, pre-2012 type price cut. not 100 off a 1200 dollar lens. haha

Have held off on the K-3 but have finances in play - and then this appears - just what I have been waiting for... Looks better than the brown toned K20 prestige edition a few years ago - love it... Will it be available in Australia?

Just sent email to Pentax Australia on availablity and price - will update as I hear.

nice color!

but .... not fair to those who bought the Silver limited version.... IMO.
Why not? This is a different limited edition and therefor got nothing to do with the old one.

After the limited edition of the K5 didn't they introduce the K3? So there probably is something new coming?.
