I would prefer the silver edition of the K-1 if the price was the same. I own 3 silver body of the K-3 and I like the design, especially with the dozen silver/black FA lenses I own ;-)

It seems to me it indicates that the camera is not sold out by pre-orders world-wide...Low interest of customers?

I think they pre-partition it by region. But if we assume the US got something like 100 units, the pre-order demand was certainly met.

It's interesting - certainly nobody who has a K-1, and was aware of its strengths and weaknesses when they bought it, will be in the market to replace it with a newer model for several years- so people aren't waiting for that - and I'm not sure how collectable DSLRs really are, with their built in obsolescence - so the market for this camera is based on people who have money and like the look or want a second body that looks different from the first - which probably isn't that huge. Personally I feel that a slight slowness of uptake might be symptomatic of the loss of momentum in product releases from RI - confidence is often more important than reality in business, and Pentax doesn't currently feel like a brand that's going places. I sincerely hope that they remedy this in the near future - even if I wasn't a Pentax loyalist, I wouldn't want to see another brand that has made a big contribution to photography go under - especially due to corporate lack of daring. Come on Ricoh - Imagine the future, Change the present.

I could be wrong, but I expect the main demand for the silver K-1 - indeed, any of the so-called collectable / limited edition bodies - will come from Japan. Elsewhere, I'd think the demand would be pretty low.

As you say (and I'd agree), DSLRs have a degree of built-in obsolescence; plus, they're far less user-serviceable than their film ancestors, so - to some extent, at least - they're more disposable longer-term.

Just like the folks who are willing to spend $1k on an iPhone, there will be those Pentax users who will want to add a silver K-1 to their kit just because they want to.

And it looks like we spoke too soon- B&H is now out of stock as of this afternoon, so that's a full sellout after just over 24 hours.

However, I don't think they received very many units.
