Too bad the grip areas couldn't be silver too...
Medium brown on the grips works for me...

For sure, the black dials kill the whole thing.
Why on earth didn't they put them with silver colored sides like on K-3s ???

I'm not a fan of the silver and I'm just OCD enough that my lenses need to match the body. Its one of the thing I hate about the Sony and Canon premium long glass. I don't like the white lenses on the black bodies. I thought the Prestige K-3 was the best looking of the bodies, but again it doesn't match my D-FA* 70-200mm so its a no go.

Hopefully this means we will see a K-1 replacement sooner rather than later.

The silver makes my SIQ better, but not enough to spend the money. The silver KP OTOH is tight.

Regarding your SIQ, what's the resolution and high-ISO performance like? Is it better than MIQ*?

Firmware update?

Wondering what is different in the firmware and whether it will be available for my plain black k1? Time for a firmware treat anyway.

I don't know about high ISO, but I have high IQ and I've made many a resolution.

Actually, I prefer the silver edition of the K-3 (looks wise) to the new K-1 silver combo... Mainly because of the grip, which has less black and more silver - especially the grip's black inserts It looks more balanced, IMHO...

Honestly, though... the K-1 silver is still a fine-looking camera, and what matters is (a) performance, and - much further down the priority list - (b) personal taste

So does the circle in the advertisement represent a new Limited lens? Maybe a 21mm f3.2 D FA? (that's just my wild imagination at play LOL)......?
