Eight new Pentax K-x colors invade Europe (low prices hold, some kits go on back-order)

The Japanese 100-colors strategy paid off, and now Pentax has launched an eight color invasion of Europe! See all the new juicy colors in all their glory at Le Monde de la Photeaux, DP UK, Fotopolis and Pocket Lint. These are eight new colors, in addition to the four current colors available in Europe. That means you have a choice of 12 different colors. Time for a trip to Europe? :) The "Metal Turquoise" color will definitely be a head-turner when you are out and about ;-)

The other big K-x news is the price-war that broke out between B&H Photo and Amazon, fueled by the short-term $50 instant rebate, is making the camera harder to resist even among non-Pentaxians.
