Just got my DAL 35mm f2.4 from Japan in RED.
The mounted pictures (taken with my PnS) shows colour difference:







I'd say the lens red is a more vibrant red, the k-x, in comparison is more muted.

So those looking for an true exact match, this is going to disappoint somewhat.
But still! For an OTT setup, apart from the gold ones I think pink and red are :thumbsup: :lovegrin:

when did you buy your red k-x? perhaps the color already fade off a bit :bsmilie:

so red DAL 35mm will match red K-r?

anyway, congratz for your purchase ;)

K-x bought in April. Will fade off arh the colour!?! :O

Also my PnS white balance I leave to auto, but adequate to show colour difference between the two.

K-x red is actually not that red, it looked like faded red. but they changed it on k-r and the DA 35mm which is deeper red.
oooo i c...... always thought that the K-X was ferarri red from online images and when i saw the camera at shops....looks like it only looks more pale when something even brighter red is put beside it ha...

looks darn red to me here below

I think it's all relative. One red still got another red redder. :D
It's only under comparison that I realise k-x is not the reddest yet! Wow, then the new k-r must be really really eye-catching.

Looks like it was meant for the Kr then?
In anycase, apart from the owner, I don't think anyone will notice. In fact, if they do they would think its part of the pattern with 2 different shades of red. ;)

i actually like it in black ;) i wouldn't dream of bringing a K-X or a K-R into out into heavy snow and i was faced with that recently.

i am happy for you that your K-R gives u so much joy :)

hoya was really spot-on in identifying this new niche. the other players have saturated the market with boring black cameras. making them in other colours sure turned out to be a winner :thumbsup:
