Prognostication Awards

I submit that there should be some sort of award or small prize offered as recognition to the poster who accurately predicts (or leaks) one or more new Pentax lenses or cameras, later to be revealed at Photokina. Of course, the features alleged, specs, and model names suggested by the prognosticator must be either perfect or reasonably close, as well...

Some people actually do know the specs of the forthcoming cameras. It is currently in testing. The problem is that they have signed NDAs. The rest is the sort of chatter that increases before any announcement is due.

Those who have signed NDAs might be unwise to participate in such banter.
But some people are just psychic.

The psychics would be psycho to make detailed predictions. I have personally known what it is like to "lose one's psychic powers". Getting them back is really hard.

Let's start the psychogame.

I "predict" a K-7 with a better sensor, perhaps the often rumored Sony one, 14 to 16MPx. No other changes, no different focusing system in particular. Something like the K20 after the K10. Sensor and some detail.

A K-x successor could be: added focus confirmation in the VF, and perhaps a working contrast detect focus, first sign of the research/development for a mirrorless camera.

What else. Does Pentax usually show wood mockups? In that case, a "will-be-in-the-mirrorless-arena-too-someday".

Cool idea.

A good requirement for winning would be some sort of provision requiring the guesser to be consistently accurate in their posts. ie: not throwing darts at the wall until one sticks Depending on your interpertation though, it seems like you might already have this covered.
