I quite like the soft brown one.
The pinks are way too girly for me. I quite like the turquoise one in a weird way.

If the beige had been cream instead (think I-10) it would have been more attractive, and probably a winner.

An orange one would have sold well in the Netherlands - at least for Queen's Day and the world cup .

I really loved the harlequin. I wasn't in the market for a body and they weren't released over here so I couldn't get one

It's a great move. Collectors will need one of each....

Am I alone in thinking YEUCH ?

Black - yes , silver - that's OK too - but the rest ??

They just attract attention and that's just not me .

Not for me either but I'm sure this is contributing (in no small way) to the success of the K-x and Pentax need to strike while the iron is hot.
Definitely a good move for Pentax.

I'm with Mr Ford (mess think) any colour as long as it's black

My wife may go for a pink one to match her 4X4

I have a SONY Webbie HD video cam that I use for an everyday walk about video camera and it is in pumpkin orange. It is only available in that color or eggplant maroon. I actually like the color since you do get tired of black and silver after a while, and is easy to spot in my shoulder bag.

Bring on the colours!!

The more the merrier, if it helps keep Pentax afloat then it's got to be a good move.

I like the brown ones, haven't a clue why, I just do!
Cheers, HG

Looks to me like they are dumping all the colours that the Japanese buyers don't want over here. Quite like the grey ... that's really sad.

I saw the red one a few weeks ago and thought it terrible. Black, or white anyday but the red looked too pink and milky.

Turquoise looks great and I have a sneaking fondness for the red one. Perhaps a tartan version for our Scottish friends?
