May it be a new lens on K-3 photo?

Looking at the photo from K-3 feature's page

it seems to me that the ring has red tint on it.

While it is most probably just DA* 55, I have some hopes because on the picture the badge and the ring appear to have different colors. All the current DA* lenses have the very same golden ring as badge.

What do you think, may it be a new HD DA* lens ?

That looks like the 55mm to me. Might just be your monitor as the ring around the lens is definitely gold

It's probably the DA* 55 as you said. The ring might look like a different colour but it looks quite gold to me still :P

Must be your monitor. I have a dual monitor setup here at work, with a laptop and an external screen. On the laptop the ring looks red, on the external screen the ring looks golden.

At first glance, it looked a little reddish to me too. My monitor is fine, I think it might just be the eyes playing a trick on you since there's so much blue in that picture.
