New Pentax DSLR camera will be announced on May, 2012. With new lens. It seems to me - DA50/1.8

I think not later than May, 23.

It could be that Hoya kept the dust or it left with Hirakawa Jun. :Beer:
It was part of Jun's buyout package, he got a percentage of the dust he created

It seems likely that the first camera to be announced would be either the entry level or one step above camera... since right now the K5 is the only Pentax DSLR.

well KR replacement was rumoured for spring so I'm guessing you are right (likely the entry one, with the WR stuff reserved for Photokina)

I like how Pentax Japan put a strike-through on the description "standard" for the DA 50mm f/1.8 lens and made it a "medium-telephoto" See the link on Pentax.jp below:

That was the OP to the mega-thread 'full frame dreams crushed today'.

Why so? Would you please elaborate? It looks like K-01 IQ is not bad at all.
Image quality isn't everything. I would take my k-7 over a 5d mark II any day for handling. I would prefer it over a 30MP mirrorless cameras as well. Ever since I've moved from an OVF to an EVF and back, I don't think I ever want to go back to EVF. There's just too many benefits for OVF. I love the ergonomics of my k-7. Unless they can replicate that magic, I'm not really interested.....

they did though.....it's the K5

hopefully the next gen (including the mythic mystery FF) continue in that vein, I agree the ergonomics on the K7 are near perfect, I love mine
