Thanks twitch....but I was of the understanding that the silver version is not a special edition but one of the colors we can go for....as in a standard package....just like the k50...am I incorrect to think this?

Well it seems I'm 100% wrong, it is there for sale now. LOL. $1,590.

I read somewhere that only 50 are coming to the UK. SRS Microsystems are advertising them for pre-order.

After thinking about it all afternoon I bit the bullet and ordered the Silver set from the Pentax Australia web store. Although I am annoyed by the whole limited edition concept at least I will get it in the colour I want which will (sort of) match my FA24, FA43 and FA77 which always looked a bit funny on a black body. In fact if it was only available in black I would probably have passed it by, but the right colour and the cumulative improvements over the K5 won me over. The big bonus was paying the same price as it would cost in the US market while having a local warranty.

Now I just have to wait and see if CR Kennedy actually gets allocated enough stock to fill my order.

I was soo tempted to order the silver one, but I've never used my battery grips, so black it is. I remember when a black body was a premium option from Pentax!

Can't wait!

LOL, this is hysterical.
I wonder how many people pre-ordered the "Theta".
Yep.
I hope someone at Ricoh is noticing.

"Hmmm...maybe we should concentrate on DSLRs that people want".

Silver K3 at CR Kennedy

Hi,

I hadn't seen this thread until now, but I too have taken the plunge with the Silver K3. I trust its availability for pre-order means that they haven't exhausted their allocation yet? Fingers crossed.

Now I just have to wait till Friday November 1st!

Chrs

That's where I ordered mine. They show it as "special order" but went ahead with the purchase anyway.
