It's "limited" edition, so as much as I wish it to be not much more than the normal black one, it will probably be. :(

It's a limited edition w/ total of 1500 available in the whole world. I'm sure Emjay will bring in some, but don't know how many. Most likely will be available in March :)

Do they have a unique serial number on each body, e.g. #14/1500?

ah man limited sets... Chances look very slim of getting it. Limited stock again.
If Emjay is bringing some in ? Are we going to get from the Retails stores or from emjay?

Damn poisonous the Silver colour K5, each time looking at it make me think of how it feels holding it. ;p

Silver is really pretty, but its simply too bling for me, I quite like how discrete the regular K-5 is with a small prime.

I feel someone is getting poisoned already . . . :devil:
Actually, after all the euphoria had settled, I ain't so sure I needed a silver k5 with all these silver / chrome lenses.

If I already have the chrome FA ltds, I think the decision could be more clear cut.

But I have a K-r that weathered through the Gunung Ledang streams/rapids, it's already a more than capable tool for me. ;-)

So bbb the chrome DAs, and let me have your black DAs! ;-)

Any body know the premium of the previous silver K-7 over the black k-7?

Maybe this will give us an indication of the price premium.


I think i will be aiming to buy the k-5 and silver Da Ltds. then i believe i have a lifetime to work on my skills to match the equpiment.

Don't think so.
The Silver K7 does not have serial number from 0001 to 1000.
So, we never know if there are more than 1000 pcs Silver K7 released.
Unlike watches, the serial number is engraved on the back.
