Hope it comes in silver

What are the chances it will launch with a silver version available?

I'm pretty sure there will be and maybe something similar to the K-3 Prestige as well.

This. Pretty much every flagship/high-end Pentax DSLR (even the 645D!) has come in a special version, so I'm sure they'll do the same for an FF. You might even see more than one if the recent trend continues!

Yeah. In addition to silver, Red lacquer would be really nice.

Now if instead of silver colored plastic it had real satin-chrome plated brass covers... It would probably have a price more like Leica.

Add a couple of "flashing LEDs" too, that'll get some talk on the street..
Seriously though, the Prestige looks excellent & would be a distinctively different camera.

I know everyone hated the LED lights on the K-S1, but honestly I didn't mind them. Especially when I found out they at least serve some sort of practical purpose lol. Yes a prestige colored FF would be excellent. However it just wouldn't match the silver FA lenses as good.
