A few more external changes have been made for the silver model. The grip is slightly redesigned and is thicker than that of the standard K-5. The LCD on the back panel and the top deck monitor will have some extra protection from scratch-resistant, shockproof reinforced glass. Nothing has changed internally for this version of the K-5. It still offers a 16.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, 7 fps burst shooting and 1080 HD video capture.

Pricing and availability
The Pentax K-5 Limited Edition Silver will be available in April for $1699.95 body-only. Limited Edition Silver lens prices are not yet available.
