    I missed this yesterday, lol ...however, the blue one and the graphite do look really good.
    If they existed they would probably sell :apathy:

    Yeah the purple one is kinda over the top. The other two aren't bad

    I'd think about the blue one if it was a thing. Not sure about the gold buttons though

    That's why I'd go with the graphite model.

    Could be an April fool's joke... but the graphite & gold sure looks handsome! Style-wise the K1 body, to me, is the
    Most Handome body since the Nikon FM era. By any maker.

    I guess it's possible, as there isn't any information on Ricoh. Pentax has a history of releasing "silver editions", and I know they released colored versions of the K30 (I have the red).

    Yeah the drool is running down chin again over the graphite model.

    I thought the graphite model was real; I was sure I remembered seeing that somewhere a little while back. If it isn't it, it should be!

    General consensus on the Pentax Forum is that it's a joke, but man if it wasn't there are a ton of people with credit cards at ready. They're even suggesting matching lenses!!!! Pentax may be missing out on something.

    They've offered various offered colored versions of several K-xx bodies, sometimes with matching lenses. However, only silver for the single-digit "K-x" line... so far. I have a graphite-colored K-70 body, silver KP, and the classic bumblebee yellow K-o1.
