KS-1 Color Recommendation?

Anyone have a KS-1 favorite body color recommendation that they think would look best with both black (20-40mm) and silver (15mm) lenses?

White. With a black lens it's a cute panda bear. With the silver it's a pretty unicorn. Especially if all of the lenses are limited.

Funny thing, originally I wanted blue but once I saw the white in person I fell in love with it.

Yeah, I first thought the blue one would be it but then the dusk gold one caught my interest once I saw a picture of the champagne gold Q-S1 (which is unfortunately likely a very different "gold" color!...). I like the idea of the silver one but fear the the silver Limited lenses may be a different color silver that may not match so well... You make a good point about "seeing them in person" which I expect would provoke an entirely different reaction... Wish I could visit that Pentax store in Paris that seems to have all of them on display!...

The blue one I saw looked great. ( I have a preference for blue/black/silver combos)

If I had to choose, it'd be Tweed Grey all the way. Striking.

The moon silver one won't match you silver limited at all. It's significantly darker when you see it in reality.

Personally, I like the orange one and the midnight black one.

This site might be helpful if you want to see how various lenses look on the different color bodies.
