Pentax PR strikes again. On a page announcing the new colors, they show....the old colors.

What can one expect, in the way of wait time, when one of these is "pre-ordered"?

If it is the same as Japan ( where these same colours have been available since launch ) it is usually 5-7 days for a custom colour if not actually in stock. Some variants are listed as "1 to 2 months" though.

Try to see these in person before ordering. I love the matt ( "silky" ) ones, especially the so-named "green", "red" and orange, but the gloss ( "crystal" ) ones look a bit cheap.

I really want to order the silky green, but I'm not going to wait weeks. Black is always good
