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.
My wife shoots Pentax.


Optio A40 and original Q.*




* I think a silver K-1 to match my black K-1 would be received about as well as the MIJ low serial silver FA77 I bought to match replace my AIV 30xxx black FA77.

as you come back up for air and another round (you know you need it), ponder this. If all it takes is buying one camera body to cause divorce, you really didn't have that much, right? So might as well buy it and find out if it's worth keeping or not anyway...

Does anyone know how reliable this source is? Twitter? Really?
I've had this info 4 month ago from a highly reliable RI inside source.
So i can confirm, even the release timing that was supposed to be "autumn 2017"

Excellent! Now, slip us a couple shots of this mythical thing of beauty, and no blurry ones like the sasquatch photos, and I'll have Clackers buy you a beer. 😃

Only 2000 units... that's not much. If so, it will be a rarity.

if they had done a K-1 back in 2000
LOL, if they had turned out the K-5 in 2000 you wouldn't be talking about Canikon any more.

Am I the only one who thinks this silver paint looks kinda cheap? I'm happy with my black one. I find silver cameras only look good if it's not silver paint but the actual metal you're seeing like i.e. on the Leica cameras. I did like the gunmetal K-3 though.

I agree.. they should have done gunmetal.. maybe if we're lucky they'll do a gunmetal version next year.


Imagining this as a K-1..

Surfar, I overheard my wife on the phone saying "Once you go black, you'll never go back."

Does that mean she's secretly into cameras too?

There's hope for this marriage yet!
