I was just reading through the Japan Pentax site, and it says that you have to be a girl to custom order different colors.

AHHH I Want the Silver with the black grip, it'll fit in nicely with my k1000 and ME.

I really like this camera, I just wish it was weather resistant.

You know, a silver Pentax DSLR with a black grip isn't really something quite new. This is what my secondary camera looks like (but is currently being serviced for AF problems )

In the simulator, you can see that there will be 4 more grip colors coming (grayed out), and you will be able to select lens color too (link not yet active).
Not sure if this was already mentioned, but in the simulator's lens option there are in addition to the kit zooms also DA 40 mm and FA 43 mm limiteds! They're still "coming soon" like the 55-300 mm zoom lens, but will there really be coloured ones or will they just be there to display the camera body with different kind of lenses?

I heard the green bodies will make you horny, the peach with the pink grip is strictly for shooting nudes, and the purple with the yellow grip is facing a lawsuit from Willy Wonka.

the 55-300 will have a DAL version out soon to compliment the kit lenses, but i have not heard about any coloured versions. since the 18-55 and 50-200 DAL's are apparently going to be offered in other colours, it stands to reason the 55-300 DAL will be as well. I find it highly unlikely though that they will offer the FA 43 in any colour other than what's currently offered.

Hopefully, they give a free bottle of touch up paint in the body color you buy.

Who will be man enough to carry a metallic pink camera?
As a point of discussion, those lamenting the supposed loss of the top LCD should know that the shutter speed/aperture/ISO display on the rear LCD is actually BIGGER and easier to read.
Good for old birds like me who need reading glasses.

Dude I was this ".." close to getting the metallic pink one, as insisted on by my daughter.

If it was flat pink I could have sucked it in, but metallic... it was too much. And the regular pink was was fluorescent, way over the top.

I settled on the orange one with black grip, model 51. In images and in simulation it looks like it will go nicely with both black and silver lenses.

P.S. In the sim they have the DA40 Limited and silver FA 43 LTD lenses selectable now.

Eruditass, since I used to live in PG County, I can safely say that they'd question folks with cameras anyway. In the past, they've had suitable reason to be camera shy. LOL

The Sheriff and several of his deputies should be doing a long hard stint in prison of at least 10-15 without parole. Instead the crooked punk is running for higher office.
