If you had the choice, what color kx would you get?

I know tons of people have posted about the stunning colors of the K-x. Now, i thought i might as well post a poll where we can compare the colors people like most. I live in the U.S., so im going to post the U.S. available colors. Please feel free to elaborate your choice!!!

Also, i wanted to make this clear: I know in Japan you can coston design a camera and all, but those cost about $1000, where these you can find for half if you look hard enough. this is based on the more affordable end of the spectrum, just wanted to make sure everyone understood why i didnt post any Japonese colors!

While I bought the Red one, I also had some temptations towards the bright blue one (my wife's favorite color) or the chocolate one (being a chocoholic as I am).

Into firegrounds action photography so RED would have been pretty cool on scene!
Almost bought one but was worried it would eventually fade to some sort of pink after a few years.

Store where I finaly purchased camera from only had black ones in stock.

Thank you for clarifying that.

Fyi: I respectfully decline to vote, or at least not until everyone else votes, so that I can then see what the masses prefer, and choose something different.

Populous opinion can be prudent to consider and even to follow where it overwhelmingly defines superiority in function or operation, but not for (mainly) pure aesthetics, as colour is here. That remains the realm for the individual, of free spirit. And peer pressure or approval will never be a valid criterion in any judgment.

I really like the orange, but I have never seen deals on it. I'll probably pick up the white one in the coming months.

I bought a black one but that was on the sole purpose of it being cheaper than the white one, which is the color I wanted. It looks like a storm trooper and I am a huge Star Wars fan.

I like a number of the colors, black, pink, purple, red, orange, in particular, but my heart belongs to the little green number. That's the one I covet the most and I'm really hoping that eventually the K-r's will get the same color spectrum because while I'd like to upgrade to a K-r body I'd still like that body to be a kooky green. You'd have to see my choice of DSLR kit bag to get it, but it's very "me" that little green camera.

I like that the texture is different than the black spatter pattern. I never really thought about the difference until I saw and held one, but I really thought it would feel like the slick smoothness of Legos, but it's more of a smooth eggshell finish. Kind of like a very well done paint job.

That's a pity. How much did you save on the black then? Hope it was a bundle.

I got the white one because it looked like something a Storm Trooper would use... But looking at the olive Green brought back some military memories...

i just wish they would come out with color coordinating lenses....

A word of caution about non-black: what you prefer after some time with it may not what you think you prefer pre-purchase.

Some of the combinations that seem really gross initially can really grow on you. Case in point the silver-brown example posted earlier, and some of the Japanese-market-only metallics.
