If you believe the rumours, it should be January 24. No more speculations are actually required! :-)

I would say that it will be an annoucement on the 24th, a la Nikon with the D3 and D300 last year when the Cameras were not available fo 2-3 months after the announcement.

I am just looking forward to the UK photo show in Feb, when (hopefully) I will be able to see the pre production models for myself.

Remember Sony did the same with the Alpha 700, showed the body as a taster, yet did not release the model for several months.

I would say that the actual release of the models will be May (18 months after the K10D - usual lifespan of a DSLR)

Well, whatever the actual dates will be, Pentax are ahead of the schedule they followed for the K10D. When it was announced it was just an empty shell. We know there are those that actually held an early version of the K20D that was fully functional.

It seems the K20D is where the K10D was at the time of Photokina 2006. It was about three months from that moment to the release, so April or May looks logical...

Announcement will be sometime in Jan. The cameras will follow in Mar. The Factory is already being/is converted to produce the new cameras. Pentax US has no more K100D supers or K10D to be sold. Can't even order them from Pentax. Unfortunately they sold more than they thought in the meantime and sold out. Get those K100D supers and K10Ds while you can.
thanks

I am confused here. Pentax USA will have no camera inventory for 3 months if new camera sales start in March? Wow, talk about questionable sales forcasting.

I'm sure Pentax can still pull some unsold stocks in inventories elsewhere to be made available to countries that are reaching code-red levels on bodies and hold the fort until the release of the new cameras.
