Which body came in many colors?

A few years ago didn't Pentax have a DSLR body that came in a ton of 2 tone color options? Which one was it?

I believe all entry level DSLRs between K-r and K-50 has been avaialble in many different colors.
But K-r and K-50 had most color options of all of them.

From memory, the K-x, K-r and K-S1.

Of those I'd say the K-S1 is the best looking.

The K-S2 was available in a few colors; based on the Pentax Forums review, it was on the order of 10 different combinations, many of them two-tone.

Yep, the K50 did have the most with 120 color options. The K30 had color options also but not near as many.

So far the K3 Prestige is the best color they came up with, IMHO.

Don't forget the K-01 (although, like the Q7 above, not a DSLR of course)....

I loved the colours and thought at the time that photography was fun once but now it is just boring and all about ' i have better gear than anyone else ' and it feels like you cannot be an individual or do something different , pack mentality . This is what Pentax tried to do , personalise your camera and have fun with it . Smart phones come in many colours now and people love it . Once again Pentax was way ahead of the game .

Weren't there some that were painted themed after some toy line?
