Any idea if the included strap is different than the usual one?
Should be the same this time around, though the K-1 strap is already larger than other bodies'.

In stock and on sale in Japan tomorrow. Apparently, 800 allocated to Japan.

What a lovely sight! - almost makes me regret not getting one -interested that the packaging is in English - I suppose that the run was too small to do more than one version.

The k-1 silver is $2200 in/from the US, not 3200.
...but if you compare that to a D850 with 3 batteries and a UV filter.

Just kidding....

I have had 100% success purchasing absolutely mint decades-old equipment out of Japan. They really respect their cameras. As a result, we can look forward to having a great supply of these silver K-1s in the future, when the carbon fiber K-1 mk9 250mpx monster is all the rage, and K-1s are priced like Spotmatics. Oh, that I live that long....

You will miss may wonderful photographs waiting for a Silver K1 to come onto the second hand market. And I think the silver finish is exactly a match for the 31/43/77, this camera stands out as a major advance in DSLR tech, and I have no regrets in buying one as you pay only a small premium against the black model ( add up 1 x k1 + batt grip and 1 genuine battery )
Here is the proof.

they still seem to be sloshing around the UK and US - srs and Wex have stock in the UK, B&H are awaiting stock and Andorama have stock as far as I can see - I'd be interested to know how they've gone in Japan

I like the strap. Is that the stock one? Chestnut brown. The K3 Prestige edition was allocated a very wide dark brown strap. Clumsily big and stiff for me so didn't package up very small when stowing in bags. I like the slimmer style.

Really
And the title: "Bad news! Pentax K-1 was discontinued!". They're linking to the Pentax K-1 Limited Silver with Battery Grip, but their headline doesn't give this tiny bit of extra information

Yup, looks like they've sold out. Adorama just got their shipment, though, so you can still get the camera if you're interested:

That's the problem with limited editions: they come in limited quantities . When they are successful, inventories disappear quite quickly.

I received an answer from B&H: the Silver is not discontinued - it's actually in stock right now.
The erroneous message was corrected.
