eye candy request- silver k-x

Hi,
I am planning to get a k-x, and toying with the idea of a silver one (from Japan) to match my FA ltd and FA* lenses. Can anyone point out a picture of a silver k-x with such a lens mounted? Probably not wise pandering to my weaknesses like this, but I can't help myself!

thanks,

Sparkston

I can't help you with the silver one. But the silver FA limited don't go too well with the white camera. With the white camera, the black goes really well. A picture to tell


I do have the silver Pentax FA 77mm f/1.8 limited and I go for the FA for gain of speed with Pentax K20D. With noise improvement in K-x, you can go even better with Pentax DA 70mm f/2.4 as the styling is really pancake small and you will be thrilled with K-x in silver and I don't think it matters on color as I think both black and silver DA limited in 21, 40 and 70 will work really well.

In particular, the DA 40mm f/2.8 is the best of the bunch to be mounted on the K-x. It is the smallest combo

If there were an easy way to get one over here, that's the color I'd have.

The silver does look pretty good, but I gotta say, the white with that da 40mm looks AMAZING

That was my idea!

I already have the silver Kx with brown handle, but no Silver limiteds lenses yet

I'd probably recommend you get the black handle however because before i ordered it i had not realized that the front of the ltd lenses were black.

Anyway the picture above shows it off perfectly well, but here is mine with a FA50mm which also looks nice on there (with the wide 1.4 looking huge on the little Kx:
