Sad news,

Rumor has it. On very good authority. Pentax/Hoya will discontinue their full body DSLR production at the end of this month.
Insiders quote Pentax can not keep up with Nikon's product line and Pentax/Hoya will not make any further investments and development towards full frame DSLR's.

After 35 years of dedication with Pentax equipment. I am devastated.
