No - there are (or were) grey squirrels running around in a park in the centre of Melbourne.

Gratuitous reptile provided.
I wonder if squirrels were imported into Melbourne under the same theory that had people import starlings from London to New York City's Central Park, because a city park "needs" starlings. Today starlings are a menace all over the USA. A gang of them basically took over our bird feeder last winter; they weren't hostile to the other birds, but so many were camped on/about the feeder that the other birds didn't bother to try to land.

December 11th, not November 12th. But they did miss this past Friday (the 18th), yes.

the first update was November 30, the second December 11, the third should come tomorrow. When it doesn't some people will say the FF isn't coming either. Then I will say their just home for x-mass and don't be a pessimist (unless they are on my ignore list, then I won't see it).

Read it as US date: 11.12.2015 really wish we would all use a standard format. So December 11th update, that would be 11 days after the first one. Should we expect the next one in 11 days? 22.12.2015? Or do you think these will be randomized?

A teaser site needs teasers. It needs to be an active process.

Clock is ticking - CP+ isn't far away, so monthly updates mean only time for one or two more.

By CP+ the site will transform into a proper full FF sales and information site (hopefully).

Indeed, the late 645 digital line was a disaster for Pentax; don't you think?

No disaster, but "late successes" imho
Better than "early would be leader" that never will ...

It's a FF Pentax DSLR - that's pretty jaw-dropping

I'd rather it be inside the K-1.

I'd like to see:

- a hybrid viewfinder of sorts, with a rich LCD overlay that helps me manually focus (focus peaking?);

- some AF tech wizardry: eg more AF points, with some trickery with mirrors that expands the AF coverage across 80% of the frame, tied to new, improved AF algorithms, plus working face-detection in PDAF.
