    Saw it on Pentaxforum..
    Pentax has just officially announced the Pentax K-3 Prestige Edition, a special version of the K-3 featuring with a gray gunmetal finish, black logo lettering, and an accompanying grip. The Pentax K-3 Prestige also includes a special black leather neck strap (O-ST1403) in addition to the other accessories typically included with the camera. The K-3 Prestige will come loaded with the latest firmware from the factory, but in all other ways, its specifications are identical to those of the standard K-3. Like the black K-3, the K-3 Prestige has a magnesium alloy finish, weather sealing, and a stainless steel chassis.

    Gunmetal grey's a macho colour, wonder if the g-metal battery grip will be available separately?

    You should see what Petapixel had to say about the K3 Prestige Edition:

    http://petapixel.com/2014/07/24/rico...ike-beat-dslr/

    Leica and Hasselblad should take a page out of Ricoh’s book: when you release a limited-edition camera, you don’t slap a hello kitty sticker or some fancy wood on it. You do what Ricoh did with the limited-edition Pentax K-3 ‘Prestige’ and cover the thing in gunmetal.
    Maybe I should paint the Sigma 10-20mm I'm trying to sell in gunmetal and market it as a good pairing with this. I don't recall B&S being so slow, even when I drop the price so much.

    there are tons of people selling lens and cameras recently, a lot of lens price hit a historical low,

    that is why it is hard to sell at normal price these days, as there are 2 times recently that lens hit 350sgd, i sold mine at 390sgd

    Certainly $40 for a 2 year warranty sounds fair?

    Never mind, I'll just wait..

    Great looking camera, I think it looks better than the silver one (which is abit plastic looking). I'm sure some guys here would love to have one
