The k-1 silver is $2200 in/from the US, not 3200.

A major sponsor of the German site Pentaxians ? Portal and large Pentax retailer in Germany (AC-FOTO) already had the chance to see the new K-1 silver in real life. She confirms that color isn't fully matching the silver limited lenses (which is a pity...).

Pentax K-1 in Silber ? Pentaxians

These are aimed at being more collectable, Spodeworld, not having more performance.

I wouldn't be so sure, clackers. Silver projectiles can be much harder to see than black ones, so I suspect they may be more useful when thrown or catapulted towards one's enemies.

Seeing that they always sell out, I'd say popular enough There will always be folks who just like collecting gear that's rare or shiny.

There's a debate going on at the moment whether I'm entitled to a ton of money or a pension. If it's a ton of money, Tess gets a silver K-1. It's all about timing.

Last time we both had the same body, (K-5s) it always took time figuring out which was who's.

Here's hoping it's a ton of money.

I reckon the 645Z would really crack a city wall - no medieval siege army should be without some!

Not saying the black k-1 gets hot at all, but would the silver one help in the sun on hot days for heat wise and keeping it cooler?
