Pentax have just announced an olive version of their entry-level DSLR, the Pentax K-m. Olive green must be the hip colour of 2009, as Leica have also released an olive version of their M8.2 digital rangefinder camera, dubbed the Leica M8.2 Safari Edition. Just like the Leica, the Pentax K-m Olive is also a limited-edition model, which comes bundled with a similarly painted smc Pentax-DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL zoom lens. Only 1000 kits will be produced, with shipments commencing in October 2009 in Japan. Currently, there is no information on pricing or international availability.

Kinda ugly.

Why not camouflage with a long telephoto zoom for bird watchers, survivalists and wildlife looking to report poachers?

not bad, I mean it's refreshing to see some new colors in the SLR market... all we get from canon and nikon is black cameras, this olive looks fantastic... it's not so bad as silver version of the SLR cameras. Anyways, great news from pentax!
