tilt lcd. I wonder what the duplicator will cost. For a few hundred you can get pretty good dedicated (not flatbed) scanners.

YES!!! I'm happy for a new 645D and Q products, but this is the one thing on the list that I would buy immediately and without hesitation.

Yeah, I saw that too. Hey, if they can implement it on the 645D, a weather resistant body, why not on the K series?

Macro for Q? High performance series? Can we get some high performance primes too that make sexy starbursts?!

New 645 is exciting! Even if I can't afford it maybe there will be used ones or new/old stock of the first gen that become "affordable"

Slide duplicator??

Thats a fast way to launch Pentax FF.



If it 'scans' 645, 67, we're talking. (for the quality and the look of larger formats)

Do you think that means better high ISO capability?

It certainly could, being a CMOS, but the way I read the tea leaves this is a reference to a faster processing chip. We'll have to see!

The mirror- and shutter-mechanics will probably be a limitation but maybe we can expect more than 1fps and a larger buffer.
