WOW! How small is this world! It just happens that I witnessed that meeting. I saw a person in blue polo talking to the local airport officer. I didn't pay attention to the words, only thing I remember is the phone ringing! The local airport officer answered! It was his mother reminding him it was time for the medication!

Welcome to the Official SCFC online megastore

Probably a Stoke City Football Club fan trying to figure out what this strange fellow at the airport wants from him. Better to say "yes" to everything rather than end up getting a rectal examination.

No, that would be the other Pentax: Gastroscopes, Bronchoscopes, Fiberscopes, and Other Cutting-Edge Endoscope Systems - PENTAX Medical Company

It was probably the janitor, and he has no ideas what a K5 is :P

What I would hope for is a camera above the K-5 which they can really spend some R&D money on. So it would be an expensive camera, but a very advanced one. Kind of like a technology demonstrator model, of just what it is they can do when they pull all stops. I'm thinking about a new SR with better performance, esp. for longer glass, which also moves the AF sensor array (iirc a patent has been filed for that), a new flash system, predictive AF, a superior viewfinder, huge buffer, new image processor, etc etc. Full frame? I don't know, but it seems unlikely. Unless they can spend money on fullframe lenses as well, and are willing to take the risk that it may fail.

Later on, (or maybe sooner rather than later) they can use technologies derived from this new model in the real K-5 successor, when the cost has come down.

I could list what I'd like in a new camera. But I can't afford a new camera anytime soon, so my gear desires are irrelevant. I do hope that Ritax produces something spectacular, and popular, and profitable, and maybe all those will fit in the same package. Also necessary: intensive marketing, aggressive merchandising, sell sell sell, etc. Mainstream the brand. Put Pentax name and products in prominent view. They won't sell if they can't be seen. (This may require development of a CostCo-ready P&S.)

What I hope for in the next camera(s): VISIBILITY!

Well, this seals it for me. I was considering getting a used K5 for Christmas but I can wait a few more months until their prices are sure to plummet (or perhaps get the new offering). I understand that this particular rumor isn't exactly rock-hard evidence but Pentax model cycle has been around 1,5 years so something is coming next spring...

What rumor? This is only a joke - a story made-up just for fun.

Yes, yes, and yes! Pentax's problem isn't with the products they're offering. It's their marketing that needs work.
