Me too. Although, realistically, I'm expecting just an updated crop body without any new DA lenses.

Since PLM seems to work so well on the 55-300mm, it would be nice to have the plastic DA's updated with it and weather sealing included. Motor and weather seals would be a nice addition I think..
+1 for that, and with all lately stock cleaning actions with DA50 on big sellers webshops running right now I hope this will happen quite soon

For the K-3III, yes... but the parallel "/F" model uses 135 film to leverage the re-introduction of Ektachrome and Kodachrome. We Pentaxians have much to look forward to...
Hmm. They could badge the new model as the "F-35 JSF" (Joint Sensor-Film).

Coffee tomorrow morning and beer in the evening. Life would be less exciting with both.

Does anybody know if any camera (not just Pentax) with 2 card slots has the ability to write to them in parallel?
I'm talking about writing pics 1,3 to slot 1 at the same time as writing pics 2,4 to slot 2?


That would be a nice write speed improvement for the next Pentax. Unless it's cheaper just to use a single much faster interface chip...


AMD Ryzen and now (maybe, hopefully) finally a new Pentax APS. This is gonna hurt...

It's an American thing. It started in Atlantic City, NJ in the 1880s. Very popular at the NY State Fair Though it's spelled Taffy...The English would call them Chews...
Toffee and Taffy are two very different things lol

Both are sugar that's boiled until it's stiff enough to pull into a shape...

The Oxford English Dictionary dates the first publication of the word toffee to 1825 and identifies it as a variation of taffy...

Perhaps we're all used to a different type of product sharing a name.

Where are you getting Toffee that is stretched? It is usually made out of butter and sugar (heavy amounts of butter) that is mixed while heated, then spread on a flat sheet and cooled. Finally broken apart into squares or shards and eaten. It has a rich, buttery, caramel-like flavor to it.

While Taffy is usually mostly sugar with a small amount of butter that is continually stretched over a long period of time. Usually when I've seen it (and the times I've had it) it was sliced from a larger roll. It isn't spread on a sheet generally and is very sweet without the rich, buttery flavor.

At least the kind I've tasted.

But american taffy and tofee are fairly different in their looks and tastes (is what I meant, yea they both are made from sugar that is then pulled.But then again, a plane and a car both have wheels and an engine but aren't exactly viewed as the same)... For taffy and tofee, one is colorful and normally fruit flavored and the other brown and tastes like caramel or molasses.


In other words, what I meant, is that no one would confuse the two (you wouldn't confuse starbursts with Mackintosh's tofee)

I've got some news not rumors:

The new Pentax will be introduced at the 26th of January and it's a complete new design that differs from the K-3.
