an 8x10 ratio would be RAD because i almost always crop my photos to 8x10

i shoot with 8x10 in mind

i use only 8x10 for my portfolio

19 MP would be AWESOME. As long as theres a little better noise reduction than on the K10D.

Why does it necessarily have to be a 12 MP sensor?

Is there Any way you can narrow the announcement timeframe for us?

Please....pretty please

or are you under a non-disclosure....

The announcement of the two new P&S cameras was.......well......anti-climatic

I am under a NDA but am not privy to much of what goes on behind the scenes.

Of course a model above the K10d is coming out. The Pentax CEO said so himself in an interview. And even if he hadn't, Pentax wouldn't just stop all camera development after the K10d success. So, they are definitely working on "something".

The only question is: when?

I'd guess that in typical Pentax fashion they've overestimated how quickly they can put together a new piece of equipment and won't have this K10d-replacement ready by Christmas. I'd like to be wrong, of course, but with the DA* delays and the K10d delays, I can say I believe Pentax has what it takes to work to such a deadline.

Maybe the new Hoya management can change that.

yes but I don't think bodies and lenses are made in the same factories.

If the manufacturing problems are quality problems (lenses for now) then I don't think it would influence body manfacturing. Now if they can't manufacture enough number of bodies, then maube it is simply called "success"?

I mean, Pentax can NOT (IMO) think that thell will for sure sell 200.000 copies of a high-end body. Migt be dangerous if they don't sell what they manufacture.

If you build it, they will come.

If Hoya start pushing out some serious Pentax mount glass, then I doubt there will be any problems moving the Pentax cameras off the shelves.

Think about the sales pitch, Pentax can be used with all the old glass and they are selling Pentax cameras. Now put a heap of new SERIOUS Hoya/Pentax lenses on the shelf and watch the feeding frenzy.

Some Nikon D300 samples Flickr: Search
I posted this because I think the same sensor is on the Sony A700 an may be on a future Pentax body (K10D successor?), like D200/D80/D40x, A100 and K10D/GX10 share the same sensor.

OT: Nikon D3 FF samples (ISO 25600 too !) Nikon Watch Blog Archive Yesterdays Smuggled Shots

Well it's possible. But I doubt there's going to be any confirmation on what sensor may be used in a possible next body, when Hoya/Pentax can't even seem to confirm that they're interested in continuing to exist as a camera company.

Very, very, very rough translation...
Magnesium alloy fuselage <br /> use of the latest Sony over 12 million pixel image sensor <br /> flash synchronization: 1/250s
Shutter number: 15 million all-glass <br /> Guanjingqi 96% magnification, big and bright <br /> Pentax lens drive second-generation ultrasound technology <br /> per second burst rate of 3.5 RAW, JPEG unlimited Shooting < br /> Fujitsu's newly developed image processor (22Bit modified), sketching better performance, high-ISO noise of more <br /> Pentax fuselage as needed third-generation technology and ultrasonic dust <br />

Interesting. Too bad I won't have any cash to spare for it if it is true.
