Does anyone have one of the older silver DSLRs? How is the durability of the silver finish?
The finish on my silver FA 28-105 {shown on my blue K-30 in my signature photo} has been durable enough - of course, I treat my cameras fairly gently.

So ultimately the point of this thread is to shift my next purchase to a silver K1II accelerating the release of the K-new and K1III if my track record holds...

Fast charging or long life, take your pick. Or at least, that's the conventional wisdom.
Not if Tesla has anything to show us next month.

I think I feel your pain, that seems to be my timing exactly.

Got an email from SRS in the UK about the silver releases, partial text below. The comment about firmware is interesting - I have highlighted in bold and italic. I wonder why the silver edition would have different firmware and what it does that the standard version doesn't?



"The camera is sold together with the silver-coated detachable battery grip and two exclusive batteries and will come in an exclusively designed product box. The camera body’s features and specifications are identical with those of the PENTAX K-1 Mark II standard model, except for the firmware and the fact that each camera has been given a unique serial number, from 0000001 to 0001000, to further express its exclusiveness."

Limited versions may be shipped with up to date firmware loaded. At least the K-1 Silver ed. did if I remember correctly.

The "silver" version of the K-1ii will be priced at a premium; my "silver" KP was priced the same as a "black" one. At the same price, I picked the one that reminds me of my "Super Program" of nearly forty years ago, but I can't see paying a premium for appearance - so purchase a "black" K-1ii now.

I知 going off the premise the silver will come with grip and two batteries, if not then yes I look at saving some $$$...
