Awaiting confirmation. But basically, shut up and take my money.

Here's the google translation:
"Ricoh will soon announce 'PENTAX K-1 Limited Silver'. The expected release date is September 14. 2000 only worldwide. Metal hot shoe, battery grip and two batteries are included and the mass retailer price seems to be around 297,000 yen including tax."

Sounds promising. Hopefully they will also announce new lenses on September 14th if this rumor is true.

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.

I (finally) have all three FA limiteds in silver, plus the FA*24 and FA*85. I need this body!

The black one can rock the Holy Trinity and the kit zoom

Or the silver medal. Or gold. Or diamonds. Or any other precious stones....

I have used this strategy before, Mark.

"Honey, we're getting kayaks!"

"Darling, look at our mountain bikes!"

I think this ploy has its limits, though.

Are these superior to a silver K-1?

Clever, but as you say, deflections only last as long as the mirage holds up ......

Not for me.

But it does reveal signs of life within the Pentax dept of Ricoh. Always good to have confirmation of that.

Get a new wife, one who shoots Pentax.
