Does mean we don't have to put up with all the unicorn jokes anymore?


Gee, I'll almost miss those... but that is ok, we can always fall back on the good ol' "Pentax is Doomed" if we get bored.

No, people won't have to resort to that. The fact that it isn't the best video camera ever made is the hot topic now.

OP/TECH USA makes weather a rear resistant lens cap for Pentax K-mount ("Lens Mount Cap"), but the weather resistant body cap is only available in Nikon or Canon mounts. Maybe there will be enough demand for the body cap once the K-1 hits the shelves.

I'd buy one! OP/Tech USA is the same company that makes the stretchy comfort camera strap for my Pentax 6x7, saved me a lot of neck and shoulder pain over the years. They make great product, and I'd bet their weather resistant cap is a top notch item too.
