Slightly old news as this was first announced a month ago but Pentax will soon release a silver version of the K-5 with a limit of just 50 being available in the UK. With it they are releasing silver versions of the 21mm, 40mm and 70mm pancake LTD lenses.
Those who like their camera to glint in the sun, or perhaps complement their silver lamé attire, will no doubt have to pay significantly more than the current street prices for the standard items.
The interest for users of the standard black version is that the silver K-5 is described in the press release as having a redesigned improved grip and the LCD status panel and monitor are of new shockproof, scratch-resistant reinforced glass. The glass change begs a question or two.
it is for anyone interested.
