So now this prank "news" is spreading all over the net, K-rumors, DigitalRev (via K-rumors), RH, 1001 Noisy Cameras etc. Rarely have fraudulent stories been this successful. Well done.

Ouch. Nikon users have to wait 11months for the 16-28/2.8? Or did he just say it backwards and the Nikon users will actually have it a month sooner? That lens has Pentax written all over it. I really hope it maens that we have FF on the Way. I would be happy with just an FF body and that lens. Everything else I would be fine with a upgraded K-7 and current lenses. But that lens on FF would be amazing.

Bla bla bla.
Just telling us our rumors.

There will be no K-7 Super! Remember!
It will be a totally new camera. With new AF. It won't be neither called K-7 Super, nor belong to such ideology.



Pfff.. Tired of such false rumors.

What did the video creator get that "info" from the fake poster(s) on here? A refresh of the K-7 should be expected. The only other point added is video?

K-7 Super could be real. I had such info 2-3 months ago. Not 100% info. Of course.
But I thought that K-7 super could be announced before the end of June.

BUT...It's just a GOSSIP. Maybe HOYA had some thoughts about K-7 super this spring.

K-7 super with new video in 1.5 year after K-7 is marketing failure IMO.
It made sense on April, May or June...
But to launch K-7 super on October is rather strange.

K-7 is not best-seller of Pentax. To offer to the customers old machine with small upgrade is insane move...

I know only one SUPER camera from Pentax in DSLR period - K100D super. Just to support SDM lenses.
Very short period of serial production.

Yellow Journalism!!! The announcer appears to be in love with sound of his own voice.

I get the same information from... Hiroshi Onoda, manager of Pentax Europe!

"¿Esperamos nuevos lanzamientos este año?

Le agradezco su pregunta. La respuesta es sí, estamos preparando los modelos sucesores de la gama actual y también modelos completamente nuevos. Pero no le puedo anticipar mucho más en estos momentos. "

cf here: Noticias
and here for comments: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-news-rumors/100107-interview-hiros...ax-europe.html

Now let's wait to see what will be these others "totally new models"... especially the one above K7!!!! (but when? )
