I heard that Pentax is going to repackage the Hasselblad Stellar and offer it in colors for 1500 dollars.

Possibly a FF release with APS-C to follow a few months later (to replace k-3). K-3 has been released only a year...

The FF might not be the next DSLR they'll announce (but, what do I know?)

A New K-3 with improved AF.C, would be the perfect K-3 in my opinion. Then only a FF can beat that.

Pentax needs a K-3 replacement that will do 11fps to beat Canon, who is getting all the press right now. So I expect that to come out first, with a tilting LCD.

I think the K series is nothing but a count-down... K10... K7... K5... K3... K1!?... and then...

A mid-range K30/K50-like camera with multi WB and removed AA-filter? That would be nice!

In February 2015 the K-3 will be 16 months old.

The K10D, K20D and K-7 were also 16 months old when they were replaced by the next model.

I heard Pentax is about to release a two seater electric ATV to use as a mount on their new line of 600-1000mm ƒ2.8 lenses.

After the dissappointing Photokina 14" a sales rep from EU, told us that the FF will be announced on CP+ 15" ; she say that in the Photokina 12" Ricoh show a 10 years roadmap with the FF on it.

Hmmm. I'm thinking it might be worth waiting if it's an upgrade to the K-3 but not if it's going to be that danged FF thing (on which I plan to hang back while I figure out why I might want it.)
