Pentax K-x available in eight more body colours in Europe

From Pentax Europe, via dpreview...

February 15, 2010: Thanks to its worldwide success and huge consumer demand, from the beginning of March 2010, the K-x puts on 8 new trendy colours. The very first time for an SLR in Europe:
Metal Fuchsia
Metal Turquoise
Metal Dark Grey
Olive green
Soft brown

The K-x already exists in Black, Pearl White, Red and Navy Blue, together with the 8 new colours this will amount to 12 available colours within Europe.

Light, user-friendly and great performance are the key-words describing the K-x. CMOS censor 12.4 Megapixels, mechanical stabilization of the sensor, HD video, liveview, continuous shooting of 4.7 fps, high sensitivity with low noise up to ISO 12,800 are just but a few features of the K-x.

The newest of the PENTAX SLR line-up has already convinced numerous people and will now please even more new users, with these new innovative and seducing colours.

These new colours, produced in limited edition kits with the 18-55mm lens, will be launched, at the same recommended retail price as the existing black version, 599 including taxes.
Available colours:

I hope they have green when they become available worldwide, but that's a start!

Seeing these colours, I wonder what scenario is more likely:

1.) They try to sell us the ugly ones that nobody buys in Japan
2.) They assume we Europeans have bad taste

(Still happy with my white K-X, but would have prefered orange.)

Admit that's true - but it got better after we had sent Guildo Horn!

I think the dark grey one is nice. A bit fresher than all the black dslrs, but not as garish as most of those colours.

Olive Green for me, very military, like the Leica's of yesteryear.

However the Metal dark grey looks superb.

Whatever the name for the silver one in the far right of the picture is, that thing is sexy!
DAMN! Living in Canada, while being amazing, does have it's downfalls.
Especially for tech lovers.
