Sure, that's tame by Pentax's wacky standards, but for Canon it's pretty... outlandish."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1308674351.usr15670.jpg" /></p><p>For those in Europe and Asia, this is nothing new. The EOS 1100D (as the T3 is called there) has already been available in these colours for months now. Personally, I think the red is striking, but its a real pity that the lenses that come with the coloured DSLRs do not match: They are still the same black 18-55 lens. Promotional price is now US$550, so now is a good time to grab them if you want them funky colours.</p>
