It feels like I just bought my K-1 yesterday, and my K-3 is getting old. Oh well, no use crying, but it does feel a little like spilled milk.

Not only, they'll also release a K3 II replacement. 2 brand new camera models at CP+. I hope that Pentax Forum will remain open after CP+ to allow discussions and the brand new camera models.

I hope we don't use all Adam's band width. It could cause an extra appeal for donations, just cause everyone has too much to say.

A new K-3 version 3, just in time for my Tax return... how special would that be? Well, at least if it has more FPS, a bigger buffer, and an incremental improvement in AF. If not.... yawn

Electronic Manufacturing Industry sure knows how to Manufacture Money. Hardware & Software very similar in theory to the disposable Diaper Industry. Each new model absorbs a little more dodo Don't drink the Cool Aid if they offer it !

What I never understand is why so many of these announcements seem to come first on small minority language pages

Until new camera's are actually announced Pentax is doomed. We can expect the rumour sites to predict the imminent death of the Pentax brand pretty soon. That's what you get when you discontinue camera's before announcing replacements.

Itís not the quantity, but the quality that matters

I still need to learn how to use my K-1...

We will probably go through 2 or 3 'upgrades' before (if ever) I start to outrun this camera...LOL!

On a side note my buying cycle started out kind of at the end of the life cycle. I bought a fantastic K-5 which was my first ever DSLR about 3 months before it was discontinued. Then I waited several years and bought a new 'old' K3.... then I waited several years and finally got the K-1. I've never been an early adopter.

The K-1 has by far been my favorite of all of them though. I love it. I wish they would release more lenses before they start worrying about camera bodies though.
