It would be a very strange press conference if that weren't the point.
They could be obliged to sign NDA. But then or such an event, I don't think so.

Hello Ben, living in France like me, I hope you won't forget to tell us when the K20D will be available in France (once you'll be able to give information) !..

You sound like a Canon kind of guy...Ever considered switching? I can turn you on to those responsible for doing so. I was sponsored by them before Pentax. I would love to put in a REALLY GOOD WORD about you. Based on your manner, you would make the perfect fit.

Seriously though, I hear Canon are in need of people with your profile.

Dear Ben, answer me, please, if somebody from Pentax read this forum about our needs in new lenses and bodies operations, functionality of new cameras and about "bugs" and problems with K series cameras so they can solve it in future. Is there somebody who can analyze forum's talk and offer something like report for Pentax high management or for bodies and optics engineers?
I understand that Pentax can't satisfy 100% of users, and there are marketing laws in DSLR market nowdays. Anyway, to pay attention at our needs is not hard. For example, for our new fixed-focal lenses needs.
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-news-rumors/17484-what-kind-new-fi...ally-need.html

If K200D's pictures are true, I can say that Pentax hears us and makes something like *ist DS with 10 MP + SR + Sv + green button + battery grip. It's cool for me.
As for firmware for K10D -
I wrote the letter to Pentax about functionality
like Pentax had made in 1.10 firmware.
I was surprised. Some of this points were I asked before.

If you can, talk with Pentax France about wide-angle lenses - a lot of Pentaxians need DA28/2 or 2.5 (42 mm on APS-C) and DA18/2.8 or 3.5 (27-28 mm on APS-C). Not "limited". Simply not expensive and sharp lenses.

Benjikan, I dont know if you realise that Canberra (where Jthommo is from) has two major Industries Politics & pornography - your photo aptly represents both of them in one hit.

Thanks for keeping the suspense and magic of Pentax alive - I for one enjoy your comments and admire your work.
