CES Pentax

If you want to see what Pentax is doing at CES, here is the official feed. They have already announced a pair of Binnoculars and several Optio cameras.

And an update for the M-mount module for GXR that futures a 16 megapixel sensor to replace the last years 12 megapixelsensor.

I'm picking a new GXR body module aswell, perhaps with newer EVF built in and tiltable LCD.

At the minimum I expect a K-r replacement (essential because it's already discontinued) and K-5 replacement (in line with their 16 month flagship release cycle). The K20D and K200D were both announced shortly before PMA 2008 (January) IIRC. PMA is now in conjunction with CES this year.

As for a FF DSLR or APS-C mirrorless, one can only hope...

only problem with this is we are applying the Hoya cycle to Ricoh. they may well change things up. they may keep the K5 around and launch a K3 upgraded apsc and have a 3 camera lineup with the kr replacement. it also ignores the sensor availability issues from the Sony plant sitting underwater and still being out of operation AFAIK. this has caused more stock issues than anything with Sony Nikon and Pentax (spoke with a friend who sells at a big shop in town locally they've had a hard time getting stock of any of the 3 brands.)

It would too, but i would bet on that for Photokina in September. it's a much larger photo imaging show. CES is very broad spectrum but the focus is really TV and Audio/Video
