They will give everyone discount vouchers to go buy a Nikon D4 and stop bitching about full frame...

With dual 'K' mounts!

and 35 dollar 'K connector' bands to join the focus and zoom of each (aka giant rubberbands that fit around the pair)

Too big. Small is the new ...... whatever. It will be a FF monocular with free-floating lambda correction. Will take the market by storm.

You heard it here first .....

I didn't see anyone playing with it at San Francisco, either, but I wasn't watching.

Maybe good coffee at the Pentax booth? Or is that asking too much?

If what the rumour mill says is true, you won't need coffee .

How about some good beer and a beer proof DA* 30mm f/2?

Photokina will probably attract many people who go by car and while I am not adverse to a good beer (au contraire), I do not wish to suggest beer and driving... Seen too many horrible results.

I'll go, to Koeln, somewhere it must be there, my anticipated ricohpentax k DSPIII with new f2.4 12 - 90. Yah.
And if not, well, Koeln is a nice city which I like to visit anyway.
And anyway, copiers get used less and less.
Sold my last da, 70, so, I am all set for a bright new future. With just a q 01/2/3 and k-5 with 31 and 100, really nothing very much holds me back.
And it helps my husband still holds on to some zooms.
YAH. I am sooooooooooo happy.
'Cause I also have an omdem5. And a great bag.

Good unlimited, free coffee, and that will probably be a little too much.

Expectations

Since Pentax released the X5 earlier this week this indicates to me that there should be some significant offerings at Photokina.

My minimal expectations are a replacement to the K5, releases of the DA* 560 the new DA*16-50 F2.8 replacement, a 18-200 F3.5-5.6 DC lens all being full frame lenses, an updated Lens Roadmap and at least a formal announcement and perhaps mockup of the elusive K1 Full Frame. Along with this I would anticipate some camera releases under the Ricoh name plate as well.

I just don't expect a FF Pentax at Photokina this year, but maybe at CP+ in January. For the K-mount I do expect a K-5 replacement and a K-r replacement to give Pentax a three tier line-up of dslr cameras. I also expect to see the final version of the DA560. Also a few new upcoming lenses shown under glass. Hopefully a new lens roadmap.

I can see a lot of disappointed forum members. Still remember CP+ is just 4 months past Photokina and is where Pentax likes to release the really good stuff. Also it does seem like Pentax is limited to releasing K-mount cameras to every 2 months at best. It could be because of engineering or manufacturing capacity limitations. So two K-mount cameras is going to be it. One released in September and the other in November.

Remember the lack of leaks on the X-5 until a day or two before the announcement this week. We might not get much in way of leaks until the day before the official announcement a few days before Photokina.

New 16-50 and 18-200 lenses would certainly not be full frame.

Would announcements be made on the opening day?
I am part of accredited press and we have access to selected booths starting Sep. 17 10:00 AM. So, expect first Photokina blogging reports coming in on Monday noon (CEST), the day before Photokina officially opens its gates. I may post in my blog if I happen to see something new from Pentax myself. However, most intn'l press will access Photokina later that day.
