To me, it looks like a new sequel to the vagaries from Smithsmyth...
So, nobody knows anything. Yet.

As much as I hate to bring it up again, that Simons Myth guy might have actually been onto something...

The more I read and listen and wait the more I suspect that MAYBE he actually knew a lot and maybe he was also spreading purposely misleading info to generate interest.

Just a suspicion I had/have.


I should note that I don't know anything for certain, but I do have sporadic correspondence with people who are in the know and are under NDA's etc.

Certain things hinted to me totally contradict SS others well kinda seem to sorta match up with parts.

I do know for certain that there is a model above the K-7 called the K-5 that considered to be a pro model (whatever that means) I know a specific tidbit about it but I won't reveal it for fear of never finding out any new info

Didn't he say the K5 is between the Kx and 7?

Rolan Mabo and me said about K-5(?) several months ago. On March.
The real name could be different.

Imho, the
QuoteQuote:
[...] two new [...] models [...]
will be suitable upgrades of the existing bodies:

K-7 -> K-7 super alias K-5 alias ...
K-x -> K-x super alias K-9 alias ...

This model upgrading might also be interpreted as follows (see first post):
QuoteQuote:
[...] one of them is located [...] between Kx and K-7, while the other will be in a range slightly higher than that owns the second of the SLR above [...]
Thus, due to higher/superior specifications compared to the current models, both successors move up the ladder. Less speculative, more realistic?

I note in the Spanish hands-on of the 645D (link on same page) that the new 645 can take SDXC cards. No doubt the next APS-C models will do the same.

The funny thing is that the two new camera model "rumor" has been going since the interviews with Pentax reps back in the Spring. We really haven't had anything else substantial released since then, which is probably why people are going stir crazy on here.

All I know is that my birthday is in October and I have a wedding to shoot that month that requires the purchase of a second camera. Pentax, please help me connect these dots

I posted this in another forum where Roland hangs out. I bet he got it from there. I met a Pentax rep in Sweden in february this year. He told me about this new model between K-X and K-7 called K-5 and he said it would be released this year.
But I got the feeling he didn't know that much about it, like he was telling me things he heard from people at work and he just passed on what he had heard.
