I don't think Pentax paints them. I think it's colored plastic. The color is part of the plastic shell.

I was leaning towards the white or blue.... Unless I find out the paint chips.... Then I'll just do black.... ?????
Biggest issue that I know of regarding the colors is the resale value being lower on non-black cameras. Since you haven't bought the camera yet, I doubt you're thinking of selling it just yet

The focus confirmation on the K-30 and K-50 is very worthwhile.

The DA18-55 kit lens is good but not great; however, it allows you to go wider off the bat than any of your older lenses will do. The DA50-200 is not that great, while the DA55-300 is pretty good, so if you get a choice go for the latter.

I have the white K30 and I'm not real gentle with it. I've had it for a year and there hasn't been any chipping or flaking to speak of.

(Also, count my vote for the K50.)
