Any more info on the Ltd. Silver K7?

Has there been any more info released on these yet?
I have been putting off upgrading from my K10D to the K7 but this may just swing it for me (if it's not ludicrously more expensive than the standard K7 that is)
Is there anywhere accepting pre-orders yet?
Thanks,

That equates to about 850 which is not bad at all seeing as the average price online for the std K7 in the UK is about 825.

Any ideas where I may be able to order one?

Your region might be more or less when released, i wouldn't order from Japan shipping and whatever fees associated within your region might be substantial.

Just in case anyone else was hoping to get one of these I thought I'd let you know that I contacted Pentax Europe about them and received the following reply:

"thank you for your inquiry.

Unfortunately the "K-7 silver edition" will only be available on the asian market.

You'll find further informations here: PENTAX K-7 Limited Silver. A silver-colored, limited-edition model of the high-performance digital SLR camera

It's always a pleasure for us to give assistance. Should you have further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

With kind regards
Bianca Hoekstra"


So it looks like it's import or go without....guess I'll sit this one out then....

That's nearly 1200 plus the chance of being hit for VAT and import duty...I'll leave well alone I think...

The black ones are pretty too! I saw the price on ebay and just had to ask, Why would anybody pay that for a silver painted camera. Got a can of Krylon?? I'll paint your camera for you. Even mask it off so it looks all shiny in the right places..
