It just occurred to me that those funky retro F-series lenses might look pretty cool on the K-3 gunmetal camera. The F-series lenses are gray.

I think the gunmetal finish looks great. I'm not planning to buy one (when I get a K-3 it'll be black or silver), but hey, I'm glad they announced it now and not at photokina.

Nice looking, need another backup for the K-3 Silver and this might be a good option if they don't release anything new at Photokina.

I think that this camera is an effort to squeeze a few more sales out of the K-3 before they release their new Full Frame at Photokina.
Every year, we wait for Photokina, and every year, we're disappointed. I'll believe they've made a FF when I see it!

FF will be a single Titanium Edition run of 5000 units with the Golden Section focusing screen and a special leather strap. It will be offered in a presentation box complete with a Titanium colored grip and 540FGZ flash.

Amazon will get 300 B&H will get 250. Adorama 200. All 47 remaining B&M Dealers in the USA will get one each. Pentax Webstore will get 3.

Canada will get 500. Henry's will get 400 of them. EU will get 1195. Austrailia will get 5.

Rest of world will get 500.

Japan will get 2000 and sell out by pre-order.

Six months later, outside Japan, B&H and Adorama will offer 2-day specials packaged with a free Pentax FluCard-II and a Titanium O-RC2 Remote with a tablet mouse pointer control feature.

PF will offer a presentation kit as the annual photo contest prize. 167 members will post a photo to the thread.

Wow! 8 pages long thread about a new K-3 colour. But we are Pentaxians, after all

Maybe we are missing the point of this K-3 prestige release.
Earlier a couple of posts touched on fact that there is possibly other news coming........
Anyone checked on the popcorn orders going into Ricoh?

Please make sure you do I imagine we will get a certain number distributed
Responded with update on P3 or so - Clem Kennedy from the CR Kennedy co responded to me within 20 mins or so to say that it was going to be posted on the pentax site within 2-3 days. Not there yet just checked.

I actually don't like it as much in these photos, assuming they're legit
When you scroll to the last body picture on that Japanese web page there is a picture of the black body next to the grey. The black looks dark grey and the grey is a lighter tone. Seems like the lighting setup is making the image very light - a "black balance" issue.

Indeed. So, it just feels like it's every year! So, if I've been waiting for four Photokina's for Pentax to announce a FF, then I've been waiting eight bloody years!

That is the thing with these limited bundles, they can sell grips (probably a really high markup) to people that would never have bought one separately.

Well, you can still wait every year.
