I'd love to see the first version be the silver-n-black version. Doubt it will happen.

Obsolete?

- Still sold: Check
- Still wipes the floor with any APS-C camera in high ISO: Check
- Better DOF control than any APS-C camera: Check
- Still makes fantastic pictures: Check
Actually it is discontinued, like the k5 is as well. yep still sold by dealers who have stock.
As for wipes the floor at high iso, yep it does but with 2 ev less DR than a K5

Yes...1st April, but...We will see soon... I say only about specs.

Photo is fake. But FF will be close to the body of K-5's size. IMO.
Is there a K-300?

Well obviously .. what I was asking is WILL THERE be a K-300 at photokina? Price of K-30 kit is down to 750 USD... makes me wonder if they will deflate the price of the K-30 and keep it as a low-end/mid-range 'brunch' model...

We can expect any official news very soon. The most tasty thing will be announced on September, 17-18.
The rest will be from September, 3 till September, 12...

It's just my prediction.

I won't. I'm expecting it to be APS-C. For it to be FF means it would've had to be kicked off under Hoya.
Or pre-Hoya . . . like the DA 1.4x TC.

I want to see a competitive autofocus system for Pentax...
I know, it's not that slow, but it does prevent people that use, say, a 7D to switch to Pentax.
Let's give them one more year to fully develop the fullframe.

interesting, k-5n and a k-3. i wonder if this dream would come true. if these 2 dream objects merge with each other and then with the other post about pentax optimizing the X-Trans CMOS then that would be wild.
