A small confirmed news from pentax.co.jp

PENTAX Announce 2008 : ?????????????

It's saying there will be full page ads in the listed newspaper in Japan on 2008/01/25 and 2008/01/26.
So this probably can add more ground on the flying rumors

11 more days to go~~

Would strongly suggest that whatever is announced on the 24th will hit the shops pretty soon after - they wouldn't be crazy enought to do that level of advertising on vapourware- would they??

Hope it is the K20D as we expect

I asked my local dealer- he said to expect it 2-3 weeks after announcement. He said he didn't know anything besides that. Pentax just told him to clear his stock of the K100D and K10D series.

I remember reading some Russian forum (~half year ago) where people wrote about their meeting with Pentax dealers. Dealers said that Pentax has changed announcement policy and would not announce products until they are really ready.

It really seems that they are keeping that promise and we will get new cameras on the shelves very soon after announcement.

Someone at the magazines and or newspapers would surely see the ads ahead of the rest, including the journalists of the 24th.

Those magazines are already printed at this point, so, yeah.

You know, when I really study it, it would make sense that the cameras would be coming out soon after. The reason the K10D and K100D stock is so low now is probably because their production was stopped a while ago to start on the next generation production. Plus working models have been out and about for months.

Wow, they're doing a Sony (with the A200). That's good. Less griping about missed deadlines.

Hope they really push through with immediate availability after the announcement.
