Pentax K-r Bonnie Pink Model DSLR: limited edition, limited taste

LG will be giving G-Tablet buyers a pair of glasses so they can see the tablet's 3D display; maybe Pentax should give K-r Bonnie Pink Model special edition buyers a pair of sunglasses to protect their eyes from the garish, clashing colors? Named after Japanese popstar Bonnie Pink, this new K-r limited edition DSLR is based on the same 12.4-megapixel camera as announced in September last year.

However, whereas the original came in a choice of white, black or red - still pretty exotic for a DSLR, it has to be said - this new version pushes the style envelope a little more (some might say past breaking point). It's shipped with a matching DA L 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL Bonnie Pink Model lens, and the boot animation has been changed to the singer's logo.

Pricing is $1,100, but you'll need to be quick since only 100 of them will be on offer. Back in December 2010 Pentax released another limited edition K-r, that time with a robot theme.
