I think Pentax low end model will be named K2000D,
knowing that the other bigger brothers already named K200D & K20D.
The biggest brother will be K2D :ugh:

So it will be:
- K 2 D
- K 20 D
- K 200 D
- K 2000 D

I'm not surprised. Back in the film days, there also was the low-end Canon EOS 1000F(N). Whether they stole the (film) Pentax K1000's name at that time is another matter. But it won't hold Pentax from using the K1000D name, I'm sure.

Ho hum

It's just a 400D with Live View and DIGIC III, and a more plasticky body...

It will get good scores in tests as usual (because it's a Canon), but having handled a 350D which was a truly horrible experience, I hope that the K*000D feels like a proper camera in comparison

Well that shoots my theory out the window.

This is a prime example of how BAD Canon DSLRs can get.
