The 9th announcement is the long waited K-3 -- 1st FF dSLR from Pentax ... Just wait and see...

Now, tone is getting serious at here. I'd say that it could be true w/o any information, just because I'd like it to be true... but don't ruin surprice of news by telling it too soon...about FF... But if more presice rumours are coming out now, date to reveal it is in few days...could be true? so, yes or no?

Perhaps they were referring to a D600? ;-)


Let's hope. I am happy with a prototype. Product release will be huge...

If Frank has mentioned it, and Adam too in his self censored post, its as good as announced
I'm sure the guys here will pick his brains when we meet up tomorrow for the monthly outing.

Prototype is most likely, but in that case I hope they'll do better than with the 645D. Remember how many prototypes of that camera were shown and how long did it take for the 645D to actually arrive on the market?

An announcement of future FF will go together fine with the not too expensive K-5 II/s. Sales will not halt since it is in another price range.

The rumour was nine announcement to be made at a date before photokina. There could still be announcements at Photokina.

I think that today, we can officially state that the Pentax Forum and their habitants, and all many other Pentax communities, have totally and utterly gone bananas.

If I knock you up a 'mock-up' out of cardboard will that satisfy you? I'll even chuck in a pinhole lens for free.. the camera will cost you about a grand.

And neither is a lens coating.. that is a technology.. not a product. One cannot go into their camera shop and order 3 HD lens coatings
lol That's what I was thinking. It could be one of the announcements but if they said "product announcements" then in my mind the coating seems like a product feature not a product itself.

Pentax, release a FF or just be a low end camera maker focus on aps-c <$1300 cameras

So far we have seen 8 pentax-ricoh announcements.. but the rumor was that there will be 9..
Could it be that pentax-ricoh has left something up in its sleeve? could it be the... K3? could it be announced during the photokina? or at least shown the prototype? these are only questions.. but.. i'm a just a dreamer, or these questions hold some truth in them..
They called the K-5 II their new flagship, also it makes no sense to have a K-5 IIs and then a higher ranking camera without that option. The "s" version only makes sense for the best camera they offer, meaning that the K-5 II will be that camera for some time. If there is a 9th anouncement it will not be a top ranking dslr, aps-c or ff.
