I was thinking about it, as for a time, Pentax in Germany had a choice between silver and black bodies. However, since these limited editions came out, with a past one including I believe three limited lenses, one with possibly a DA 40, and the most recent one, including a DA40XS with a slightly different trim, the silver ones are no longer out there and I can't really imagine people buying them for the prices demanded.

I just bought a black K5 body for 719 euros (and I'll get 50 euros back as a rebate) and I can buy the DA40 or DA40xs for about 320 euros compare that to 1,500 euros for the silver with the DA40xs.

I recently added the Pentax K-5 Silver Limited Edition to my Pentax DSLR collection. I've been actively using the Pentax K10D, K20D, and the K-7. It seems to be a great camera and look forward to using it. Has anyone else on this forum purchased the Silver K-5?
