Wow, that was an abomination. Maybe the worst looking camera ever designed with the Pentax name on it.
Regardless of appearance, I would have purchased one instead of K-30 if only it had an EVF.
And now I'm hearing it may not have aperture control issue which bedevils K-30.

See New Ricoh WG camera to be announced soon, Pentax K-1 Silver limited edition coming later in 2017 | Pentax Rumors

This silver special edition of the K-1 could mark the 60th anniversary of the 1957 Asahi Pentax (AP) camera.

Remember the 2007 'AP 50th Aniv.' design study model based on K10D:
Wow, Serial Number 0000001 on the lens pictured on the "AP K10D".

I'm not afraid of a silver K-1. If they make it gunmetal, though...
I was going to chime in with the same thought. I would probably have very little hesitation in buying one if they made a gunmetal version. (Provided I have the funds for it )

Note the words "SMC TAKUMAR".

Regular DA40 Ltd, both SMC and HD, have PENTAX instead of TAKUMAR.

I wish the return of the name TAKUMAR for some primes at least, or, PENTAX TAKUMAR.
Considering how big new lenses will be, there will be enough space to write both )

Strange, I thought that Ricoh completely abandoned this line of products, anyway the new Olympus TG-5 is also coming soon and with 4k - it will be interesting to see the competition between those two.

Hopefully Ricoh do something new with the WG line like putting a 1" sensor in it. It could double as a street shooter. Too much to ask I guess

A silver Pentax Q is quite similar to a silver Q10
