Silver limited/special edition version of the K-1 coming in 2017?

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:

Since I fell for the silver KP I bet I'm a sucker for this too.

I'm not afraid of a silver K-1. If they make it gunmetal, though...

Maybe this one will have the FW updates rumored to be in the works, and then after this is released, the FW will be available to existing K1 owners some short time after?

See, now this is rumor and speculation I can get into.

Could be expected because the FF limited are also available in silver finish.

Yeah, I'd be really tempted to sell and replace mine with that.

I wonder what the ratio of silver:black KP sales is?

M42 mount with aperture coupling please, and then I'll consider it. Input your focal length and maximum aperture at switch-on and let the camera take care of the rest. *ducks*

Wow, that was an abomination. Maybe the worst looking camera ever designed with the Pentax name on it.

Oh, I'm assuming you never shot a K-01... It looked funny though.
