So Photokina Starts the 21st of Sept ?

When do you think the REAL leaks will start hitting the streets. I bet around the 21st of August.

I think they will let a little out week by week starting the 21st ...... then shut off info till they decide to let the cat out of the bag, what do you guys and gals think.

Think it will be just a couple of days before the show when real stuff will start to leak. It`ll be tight before that.

However people have already analysed the whole situation enough to make very good predictions. The "fullframe mystery thread" next to this one has it pretty much summed up.

So we dont even need those leaks.

Some possible canon leaks are already happening (Is this Canon's 60D DSLR, articulating display and all? -- Engadget)

And Nikon (Nikon D3100 bundle pops up in Best Buy database with September 18th release? -- Engadget)

I think it is generally a good idea to do a little leakage/pressers before the show to make sure people want to come to your booth and because it is a lot easier than trying to shout over everyone else at the show.

Are you sure about this, or it's just a supposition?

It's a guess based on observations.
I will be very happy if I'm wrong :ugh:

wll, some people are already quite well informed. They just don't speak up this time.

AFAIK, the least known aspect of the K-5 is it's AF system where lips are tighter than usual. But it doesn't matter. AF statements would be marketing noise until real benchmarks become possible. So, I'll guess it'll a good moment after Photokina that we learn about the interesting stuff

Maybe AF-C in video mode to keep up with Nikon

Nikon and Pentax have no reason to gimp dslr video, unlike all other DSLR makers who also sell video cameras.

You just may get it, but may not be in the model that you would want.

No Pentax leaks I hope....

What with the increasing rumours about a sealed entry level, any rumors about possible "leaks" is something Pentax could NOT use.
Leaks are the last thing we want to see

Well Sony is doing their launch event on Aug 24, Canon doing theirs on Aug 26... so it shouldn't be far for Pentax IF they have something to show us.

XD I know I know, but still I am not here to spread rumors :P

I was thinking Pentax would use World Pentax Day as the date for Press Conf., that would be serve as double promotion for both Pentax new products and show the world that Pentax does have a big user community.
