I want the white K-X but.....

Hi Everyone,

I'm a new Pentax follower. I really want the new K-X in white but I want to know if Pentax makes other lenses and accessories (flash) in white too. Are the kit lenses the only ones made in white?

Also, does anyone know if there will be a white kit with 2 lenses?

Thanks!

When they ran the K-m limited edition white models it was a 2 lens, 18-55/50-200 kit, and both lenses were white. There is a good chance this could be available at some point, though only the single lens kit is currently up for pre-order (available at a couple sites, willoughbys and tigerdirect, at least they were yesterday).

As far as other accessories go, I think that would be the time to get our some model paint I am afraid. Unless sales are through the roof, I doubt there will be any white or other color accessories (at least 1st party from Pentax).

Edit: WELCOME! Just got my K-x as a 2nd body and am very impressed so far. I was going to hold out for the white version as well, but I got a 2-day coupon from ebay for 8% off, coupled it with bing cashback for another 8% discount and bought the black body only from adorama. The kit lenses will serve you well, but if you are willing to wait I would try and see if they make an 18-55/55-300 white kit (even if the second lens is black, this lens is a significant upgrade over the 50-200mm kit lens)

Yeah, I'm eyeing the black version with the 2 lens 18-55/55-300 since Amazon currently has it $100 less.

Do you have any pics or know where I can find a pic of how the white cameras look with an all black lens? Am I being too anal?

I was being anal about how it looked too. I like the look:

Infact, some think white body + white lens looks a little too toyish and prefer black lenses on it. Mine is coming Monday.

Pentax JP anticipated this desire of folks to have a great looking camera. So you can play with the Pentax K-x body/lens simulator (below) to see how various K-x body colours will look with various Pentax lenses:

????????????PENTAX K-x ????????

Some of the combinations I made up are below: Yum!



Flickr has a few real world ones too.

This is a cute one:



Obviously that must be from Japan, where the full '100 colours' options are available.

Cool simulator.

I dunno... I think I still prefer a matching white set. But the more I look at the white body with black lens... I'm starting to like it too.....

Choices.... ARGH!

The black 40mm looks great on the white body!
