The D850 is likely to be priced wayyyy higher than the D810 ever was. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for D810 prices to plummet.
But it is interesting someone should suggest Pentax is doomed if they do. Pentax didn't die when there was a D810 and no K-1, but they will when the D810 becomes cheap, if in fact it ever does.

I know there must be something logical there, but it escapes me.

People need to understand, saying Pentax is doomed is meaningless if you don't say when.

We been hearing "Pentax is doomed" for so long, it really isn't a statement with much credibility. Reports of the demise of Pentax to date have all been greatly exagerated. Why would we assume the new guy who hasn't been around for it all, knows anything more than the last guy (who was clearly wrong.) ?

OR, this morning!
Some manufacturer came to them with a silver skin that can just be applied to existing K-1s. It took them 10 minutes to write the press release. That's my guess.

I also fail to see the reasoning behind statements like that. I mean based on that thinking imagine what the price of a K-1 will be when the next FF body is released? People will practically be giving them away! Some folks just gotta stir the pot I suppose.

Maybe they just thought of it last week.
It happened by accident. Their compressed air paint gun ran out of black paint down the K1 production line.

Alternatively, there may have been a large number of black K-1 bodies that had some paint defect on them which the factory couldn't easily correct. So rather than trash those bodies as QC fails, they figured that a coat of metallic silver paint would totally disguise the original paint defect, and freshen the rejected items up nicely.

This is a rumors thread. Conventions of logic and organized thought are checked at the door.

Get a new wife, one who shoots Pentax.
Even male Pentaxians are rare on this earth, Outis, we all know that!

She actually likes cricket, kayaking and mountain biking, so to insist on photography as well would be kinda nuts, like kicking Heidi Klum out of your bed for passing wind.

Think about it this way. You will be broke after the buy that you wont have to pay for alimony.
You're right, Culture, any remaining cash assets would be split by the Family Court, so I might as well order twenty of them from Ricoh!
