Excited. Can finally sell my K200 and get the top Pentax model (hopefully FF) and use K5 as backup.
Now K200 is a backup, which.... every time I click, is like the whole room can hear the shutter sound. (The K30 is a replacement for the K200D ... though it is missing a replacement cycle).

Could be, but not K30 i think... the hump on the left hand grip should be visible from the back also.

Yes it is. It is the back side of a Pentax X90 bridge camera.

Why would I invest in a K5n (with articulated screen) if the K3 is coming a few months later? Just testing the logic
Because some of us are just as fanatical about APS-C as you are with FF. So I have an equally long list why I need to stick with APS-C.

Haha, so a rumor from dpreview that was posted from a rumor on a german forum.

IMHO, as these rumors are trending, there is a near 0 (zero) chance of an updated K5 - probability (and legitimate rumors) says the K5 will be discontinued really soon.

Define anytime soon if you mean the next 6 months there will not be one in stores I agree. But I would take a bet on it being in stores by next spring (and previewed before that)
My thoughts exactly.

Here comes the Pentax 4/3rd camera!???!?

What the heck do they mean with "without APS-C"?
Because the original content is in Deutsch which is beyond my understanding, I guess the English is translated by Google translate, which may no exactly express it's original meaning, yet combine context, "without PAS-C" I guess should mean something much better than APC-S

This would be a pleasant surprise. Plus a new lens roadmap with several FF lenses to go with the new FF camera. Still my guess would be the Q2 for the second camera. Ifa second camera is even announced.

I am pretty sure there won't be a 24x36 Pentax any time soon...
I'm pretty sure you will be proven wrong within twelve months.

There will be a Pentax full Pro system.

I don't see the logic if this K-30 were true. It would mean Pentax is way behind in the market place. This "K-30" will be a market DUD!!!
Why would anybody pay $850.00 for an outdated camera when you can get this for $700.00??? ...Just does not make sense to me.
