Great, so then we get attacked by the fur haters and PETA types while shooting an event or whatnot!

Make sure you have the weather resistant lenses!!!

If I had any skill in PS I would mock it up so we could have an idea of what it will look like when it comes out....

Pentax will be the first to get it. Something new is coming.

Well, it sure isn´t a full frame sensor.

Well, since other brands have FF sensors, it's a pretty safe bet that something Pentax will be the first to get isn't that.

I love the changer idea - well - my Black and Decker drill changer can change bits on the fly - why doesnt my camera change lenses the came way? I prefer a 8-lens changer.

I'm so sorry I couldn't follow up on my earlier promise. For those of you that have read my blog, you already know that my mother passed away and I went to Montreal to pay my respect and to be with my brother and sisters during this difficult time.

I am back to my normal life and I was at the shop today, after receiving my prototype this weekend. Just a few changes and I will present my finished product. It will be on my blogsite before this coming weekend. I can't wait to show it to you all.

Thank you for your understanding and patience my Pentax friends.

I'll bet it's a plate that comes between the camera and grip with 1/4-20 threads allowing mounting of the camera in new and different ways. Basically the 1/4-20 tripod socket is not robust enough and if you manufacture a plate that goes in between the grip and camera you can do some amazing things.

Something like that would satisfy all the conditions of the team at Aletta and not require optics or electronics. The plasma cutter/CNC and motorcycle folks all come together to make this happen. It's also easy to roll out to other manufacturers.

"I read all comments on various Forums, laughed at some of the suggestions, but some of you came real close to describing what the new accessory is..."
