    Is anybody else excited about these new color options?

    I so like the orange and black.

    The olive green is OK, kind of has a military look.

    I don't really get the point of the slightly different black on black one though. The texture isn't that much different, although it is a cool texture - snake?

    They may have that option in Japan. I know that Pentax has the Q in colors of mechs from several anime series.

    Those actually look pretty good, and tasteful in my opinion. They've done a good job playing up the camera's retro look, especially the olive. Sort of had to squint to tell the difference in texture on the black one though, I suppose the main difference there is the new pancake kit lens.

    These are nice, but the nicest one was at a product show I attended about a year ago. It was an E-M5 with a matte silver/ grey finish and olive green leather. It was gorgeous.

    I like the olive, although the orange would match my car.

    Sounds very nice... and these special editions are actually reasonably priced if you can catch one.

    They seem tasteful enough, but I don't prefer them to the standard versions. My wife quite likes the orange one, though.

    The new texture on the black one is the only one which remotely interests me. :/

    The Pentax Q is also featured (alongside the main character's vintage Rollei 35) in a very warm and fuzzy anime series called Tamayura Hitose, in the second season entitled "More Agressive". :)

    There you go. I could see that selling as a limited model.

    I want the olive colour for my G5.

    I think Santa will just ignore my request though dammit.

    Sounds like they have seen the popularity of things like hte Aki-asahi (sp?) skins and are wanting to capture some of the market share themselves.

    These colors kind of grow on me. If wanted a second m4/3 camera, I might consider the green one!

    Silver + orange leather would be my choice.

    SF Giants fan here. Needless to say, the Orange and Black look awesome. Way too expensive for what is only added cosmetic on an already attractive camera.
