The Pentax K-x broke new ground by being made available in Japan in a broad spectrum of body colors. Until now, U.S. K-x's were available in black, white, red, and navy blue—more colors than most cameras come in, but far short of what's available in Japan. The colors have been a surprisingly popular option both there and here, however, so Pentax USA is now importing four more color options—I guess I don't have to write this in English, assuming you can see the picture above, but the new colors are green, orange, purple, and bright blue.
The new colors are available exclusively (for the time being, anyway) at the Pentax webstore, sold with the compact 18–55mm kit lens for the nice price of $649.95.
The K-x has been a very good seller, even to Pentax aficionados who also have higher-end DSLRs.
