Can we start a whole new site called "the Pentax Legion of Doom".
On another site I frequent they started a "doom and gloom" thread and asked that everyone with that in mind please post in that thread to keep the rest of site "doom free".

Why is the rumor of Pentax being doomed running around?
I see new cameras (k-50 and the up coming k-3) being introduced. Last month, some new water resist flash units have also been launched. I'm new to Pentax and the reason why I shifted is that I believe the system that I was using is now dead.

Will I have another problem with Pentax in the future?

Mostly an inside joke at the expense of a few who constantly claim everything Pentax does is wrong, thus Pentax is doomed....

No way, 20 years at least. And I'm not even making things up.

Visual proof of a number of things: more images of the K-3.

Dual SD cards: confirmed.
Headphone connector: confirmed.

Seems to me that the headphone connector bump also has some ergonomic purpose, e.g., for providing better support for the left hand.

Of course I'm buying it... but that bulge is rather inelegant to my eyes. But, with a small form factor, and knowing how much Pentax crams into the body, I don't suppose there were many options. I must admit, though, that I'm getting rather excited!

Pentax has been number three behind Canikon for a long time. I think that's exactly the way they like it. Just when the competition introduces a new feature at a higher price, Pentax comes up with a better idea, and at a lower price. For instance, designing lenses so you have to pay for image stabilization each and every time you buy a new lens is a truly dumb idea. Pentax came up with a better idea of building it into the camera. Can you say really smart? Pentax did have a momentary hiccup with the delayed release of the *ist D, but has since taken off. I believe the Pentax brand will be around for a VERY long time. At least as long as experienced photographers can see through the hype and the "perceived value" of the top two brands and opt for a camera that is a much better deal.

I think it's time to talk about the DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED WR that will be announced together with the Pentax K-3 .
Isn't it?

Nice to finally see good quality pics, what about the 'top' and 'right' side views?

Awesome, no need to relearn where the EV and ISO buttons are (by far my most used buttons) U1, U2 and U3 on the dial.. all I need is AV 99% of the time but hey, maybe I can put HDR on one of those functions or some kind of bracketing set up on another.

I don't use video now but back when I was teaching this is the first Pentax I would have recommended. We used K1000s for film, but this has a mic jack and headphone jack, both a must for institutional purposes. If i were still teaching, this might get Pentax some sales, and i'm sure others who are still teaching multi-media will see it the same way.
