I beg to differ, good sir.
I'm a firm believer in the shape of the K10/K20 and wouldn't mind at all if Pentax went "big" again.
Ever handled a k100d dear gentelmen?

I would love to see a new body for the FF Model in line with the K10/K20 body ( with the battery grip built in). One of the things that annoyed me about the K5/K7 is the move away from the Menu wheel to the button arrangement. Also if they do go with a bigger body a slightly larger grip would be nice. I think that for the advanced APS-C Model stay with the K5 Sized body but incorporate the best functions and ergonomics from that style to the FF.... Just my 3 cents on the subject.

I am very happy with the K5 format, but wouldn't object to a camera that can write DNG to 1 card and JPG to a 2nd card.
What an excellent idea, a card for each format.

A very reliable source of information re Pentax said: look for September 5th press conference organised by Ricoh Imaging.
That's Thursday, FYI..
The Ricoh India AGM is on that date, and according to Adam's post, Ricoh India have just announced the introduction of Pentax to the Indian market.

That would be good timing....

People of India, who are so full of joie de vivre, will love Pentax. Considering the climate in the subcontinent, it fits perfectly too.

Going by past rumours of press release dates heralding new high end cameras I am going to go out on a limb and say this date of the 5th of September will probably just be a press release about distributing Pentax products in India.

Pssssst .... haven't you heard?

:sarc: That's when Ricoh memory-holes the K-mount and the Pentax brand altogether. /:sarc:

I'm sure they'll not announce anything new the day before the IFA Berlin starts.
Why would they, it would make no sense at all.

SOunds like some good news. I was thinking about the K-5 IIs, but I think i will wait till after Christmas to see. Might invest in a few more lenses instead. Then a new body next year.

Oh, great - spamming the forum with more "let's mock Pentax out of the blue" BS.
