Limited Edition Pentax K-5 Silver plus three new lenses: only 50 K-5 silver bodies due in the UK

In addition to the standard Pentax K-5, the company is releasing a special limited edition Silver K-5. This very limited version features a new finish as well as reinforced glass on the top and rear LCD panels. The latest K-5 also features a subtly redesigned grip. However, you’d best be quick to snap up one of these £1300 beauties as there are only 400 arriving in Europe this March, 50 of which will make their way to the UK (if they haven’t sold out already!).
In addition to the silver K-5 body the company will also re-release three lenses in a silver finish, though figures of how many units will be produced are unknown (Pentax UK was unable to comment in our last discussion). The three lenses are as follows:

–   Pentax smc DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited Silver (£530)
–   Pentax smc DA 21mm f/3.2 AL Limited Silver (£610)
–   Pentax smc DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited Silver (£610)
