nice, but I want the olive with brown grip. I wont be swayed by these wonderful colours. this is actually big news though, because the colours have indeed proven to be very popular. these new colours will I would put money on, boost sales. why dont they have pink? they have to know that would sell like crazy.

They should do school colors to match various universities and co-brand them with the school. They could put them in the bookstores and they would probably sell pretty well. Purple and Gold for LSU, Navy and Gold for ND. Schools with highly loyal alums would probably snap them up.

I agree with you. All my girl friends always ask if they have PINK available
Maybe there will be more colors to come.
Also Pentax need to advertise this more.
People need to see these colors. Colors are meant to be seen, not heard.

while I truely hope they are successful, I hope the classic colors remain available. I'm still struggling adjusting to the gold band around my DA* lens, and the red/orange lettering on the Pentax-F lenses was over the top.

My wife was at the Armory Show in NYC several weeks ago and didn't understand while so many people were staring at her - until she remembered that she had her red K-x with DA40 hanging around her neck! The Armory Show attracts the art world, including hipsters and trend-setters, so that's a good sign.

The DSLR world is flooded with so many black camera bodies, so i can see why she would stand out with her red K-x. I had a white K-x before returning it (wanted the package with the 55-300mm lens but was only available in black) and sometimes I regret it. It definitely attracted more attention, but maybe that can be a bad thing. Gets Pentax noticed though, free publicity.

Didn't they have a pink one you could get from China around V-day?

Yeah, the royal blue is way better than the navy. Navy one looked black. That green is pretty wild.

Yeah, or a yellow one that goes to all cancers.

Red one should be (Product)RED!
