Nope Minolta did, years ago with full system, including flash, in white.
But that wasn't a DSLR.

I won't be surprised if Canon / Nikon will come up with their special color version too these days.
And I won't be surprised if their versions sell a lot better than the white Pentax.

It still demonstrates that the idea isn't new. It is a lot like when Pentax started selling variations of their bodies in black in the late 60s.

That was a good idea in itself. I, however, find the chrome bodies have much more charm.

An interesting novelity item. Perhaps they should spend less time on the paint job and work on increasing the AF speed of their cameras? Just a thought.
