The announcement will be September, 14...It's interesting if it's only one announcement of camera till the end of the year?

Get a new wife, one who shoots Pentax.
Just so long as she doesn't shoot his cameras with a .44 Magnum...

Most people aren't good enough shots with a 44magnum to hit a camera at 12 feet. He's probably good, except for the part where she misses and hits the guy holding the camera.

It will most probably be the cover that's made out of metal. Just like this one: Premium hot shoe cover for K-1 - PentaxForums.com

A new set of silver lenses may be in order now.

Silver DFA 70-200, 24-70 and 15-30 would be good to accompany the K-1.

May as well do a silver 150-450 too.

Cool thing. Full frame in silver recall the tradition of Pentax film bodies.

I'd say, three colors make sense:
- Black mat anti-radar for photographing incognito
- Camouflage for not being seen by wildlife
- Vintage silver for the nostalgia of Pentax film shooting days, and escape the Canikon herd.

you are forgetting all those gold LX's with leopard skin. You should add that colour combination to the list as well

Sorry, but I have to ask

Does anyone know how reliable this source is? Twitter? Really?

Gah! I already have a silver FA31 and FA77.

If I buy it, my wife will probably file for divorce.

So, I really need to think about this.
This is ambiguous. Are you indicating there is additional incentive to buy the K-1 Silver?

I had to read it twice before I understood what it meant.

that said, if they had done a K-1 back in 2000, we wouldn't be talking about Canikon anymore...
