Hell yeah, #1 sounds plausible - if any.

Photographer: Release the shutter, HAL.

Camera: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.

Photographer: What's the problem?

Camera: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.

Photographer: What are you talking about, HAL?

Camera: This photograph is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.

My (worthless) picks for alleged "big surprise" in order of probability:

* Funky viewfinder thingie we're hearing about. I hope it can be tweaked or turned off.

* Statement of direction re: EVIL.

* HDR in camera with significant ability to align three images. Perfectly suitable and quite easy for nearly all hand-held shots. Not competitive with dedicated SW owing to very limited tone controls. Solves many DR problems on static scenes.

* SR enhancement that's different in quality rather than quantity (responds to different movements and/or in a different manner).

* Voice activated manual mode: "Camera listen! Set aperture to 2.8, set shutter to 1/250, set ISO to 1.6 times ten to the fifth ... camera execute, camera shoot!" Ka-chunk.

* Clear statement of direction re: FF.

* Announcement of working prototype cold fusion power plant.

* FF product announcement.

I have filed for the traditional vague concept patent on #5.
I love it how you decided to rank the last two items

Agree about the movie, but thanks for this—you made me laugh out loud.

It would probably require breaking the law.

It's quite different now. I had the product pictures of the K-7 one month before it was officially announced; however I kept it secret (and I will it keep secret too if I find the information today or tomorrow, I want to give Pentax/Hoya their 5 minutes of fame )

Obviously a terrible movie, which is why four decades later it still resonates and people bother remembering its characters, situations and ideas -- indeed are still quoting from it. A movie so terrible it has better effects than those today, has a soundtrack that will chill your heart and footage that anyone even approximating a photographer must bow down and worship.

Indeed 2001: A Space Odyssey is terrible, assuming of course you are using the word in the sense of "formidably great". I can't imagine anyone would parade their ignorance with any other definition, so I give you the benefit of the doubt.

I highly doubt that.
If you're keen on FF, then Pentax is not for you.

My bad.
What do you mean by full 'pro', though? Is there a definition for a pro camera?
It won't have a label on the camera, saying 'professional dSLR'...
