Before January 10th...

The two cameras have arrived in the US for show and you just have to figure out when it will be shown
Okay Chris

Right off the top of my head I am going to guess that it will be vetted starting MONDAY, January 7th at the Consumer Electronics Show in LAS VEGAS.

But I don't think Pentax is gambling on this one... Perhaps they know they have a sure thing

I can understand the Paris news conference on 1/24/08. The first Hoya/Pentax news conference coming from Tokyo or Vietnam would make sense. Having a news event prior to PMA makes sense, but why in Dubai?
Because that is where the money is!!!!!

Olympus used Istanbul, Turkey for the introduction of the E3 to the press. Journalists were flown into Turkey to join the event. Not sure where I read this, maybe letsgodital or stevesdigicams...Oh my brain does not have a photographic memory.

This is a large world and as I see it every country is a member of our humble Human community.

It does not matter where Pentax is introduced as long as they can ship I think most of us will be happy. (There are those that will always find fault with everything Pentax does though )

That's true for *any* camera manufacturer. No worries. Most will be better informed and open-minded to the fact that Pentax makes great cameras.

Come to think about it - wouldn't it make more sense for Pentax to release the two cameras on separate days? Could we hear about the K200D first, then on Jan 24th, the K20D?

An international press meeting to showcase just a k200???? Seems a waste of marketing dollars. There should be more meat than that. Well to each their own.

Unless it is on display right now at the CES in Vegas. codiac2600 already said earlier that it is in the US right now and will be shown before the 10th. Although nobody knows one way or the other yet if it is at CES.

It's difficult enough to get the journalists off their a... and to a conference press that you wouldn't want to have to repeat the process unnecessarily.

There is a thread trying to follow it here too. As was mentioned nobody has said anything about the Penatx booth, so we don't know one way or the other.
