Default Pentax K-x US color options, not just 4 anymore

There will now be 8 colors of the K-x available in the US. Not quite the 100+ that you can get in Japan. But more then the basic 4 form last year.

I like the white, I would have gotten a white epl-1 if they had it here in the state.

I think a white EPL1 would look nice but the K-x is quite bigger...it would probably stand out too much. I would not mind the blue, though.

The Kx is an entry level model and, even if the majority of buyers still choose black, a wider range of colours can only enhance the chance of swinging a potential buyer in Pentax's direction. Good marketing and hopefully it will lead to more loyal Pentax users.
