    This silver K-1 in limited edition could mark the 60th anniversary of the 1957 Asahi Pentax (AP) camera.

    Remember the 2007 ‘AP 50th Aniv.’ design study model based on K10D:

    a silver K-1. How nice.

    • looks like cheap plastic in the image, metal finish is fine if it looks quality and not plastic

        The image is a mock up on a k10d

    About time for a silver one. I wonder if the WG-50 will just be another color of the earlier WG compacts. It is about time for some development in de tough camera niche. A 1″ sensor and 4k video would be cool.

    Olympus have released a new TG-5 camera, so I’d expect the Ricoh equivalent to be same specs as this. That includes 4K video, same lens and macro focus ability, new lower res 12MP sensor, and still the same physical size sensor type as before.
