I really wanted the white body, grey grip, and lime green accent on bottom. I think that's really attractive look.
I agree with that! Though the green isn't punchy as the product photo indicated, the color combo has grown on me.

I'm wary of bright colors, like white, because I worry the camera will show up in reflections. Although, I had a bright yellow K-01 for a while, with a matching neck strap, and it didn't seem to be a problem!

I was interested in forest green or maybe the black with racing stripe. However, those were only sold bundled with the kit lens, which I didn't want. I looked at the solid black one, but. . . Somehow, it's just too bland, too blank. I settled on black-and-orange, and I think it'll be good. It has a bit of flair.

Black. Would've done forest green but too long to deliver. White, as Tony mentioned, I avoided because it might reflect too obviously if I'm shooting out of a closed window.

I use this as my ski camera and I like how the white body doesn't warm in the sun as much, making any snow that falls on the camera less likely to stick.

Edit to add: this apparently make it easier to lose in the snow as well.

spare parts for color collection

good morning, I was wondering whether the differently coloured body bottoms could be purchased separately to create custom colur combinations - and if so, which would be the source for North America??

I'm getting the white one, would have preferred white and lime one but I wasn't going pay an extra $70 for it. My K-r in white was my first colored SLR since my old ME which came in black and silver, the all white color I find very attractive and has the added benefit on being easy to see when I set it down and looking for it

I was going to go with forest green, but I couldn't pass up a sale for a new white one (body only) for $400. I was able to buy 2 great lenses because I got it for such a good price.
