...I wonder when will Pentax announce the K?? with LV IN the viewfinder, with real time SR. I am tired, and my eyes too, of trying to get the image steady enough to frame before shoot when using my smc-a 400-600 Reflex handheld.

SLR Roadshow - PENTAX Europe GmbH

SLR Roadshow in Germany from September,12 (!!!) till December, 13.
I am sorry to disappoint. Pentax Germany runs roadshows all year long and this list contains all events from the next one after today (whatever today is) to the last one which has already been scheduled.

No. The same SLR roadshow before Photokina was in 2006. K10D was announced on September, 13.
I used translator - Pentax.De say about promotion of new DSLR like it was in 2006.
The new schedule begins on September, 12, finished before Photokina and continue after.

ogl, why not just trust me?

I know those roadshows first hand and they are completely unrelated to photokina or announcements. BTW, it has been a constant disappointment that recent gear wasn't shown at roadshows. I have seen that customers attending a roadshow had more recent gear than the Pentax crew. Seen for the DA*300

Pentax runs roadshows all time since 2 years or so.

These have been the most recent roadshows:
Fr., 05.09.2008 11:00 - 19:00 Foto Mikus Rechtstr. 7-11 45355 Essen
Fr., 05.09.2008 10:00 - 19:00 Foto Lambertin Auf der Domplatte 50667 Köln
Fr., 05.09.2008 09:30 - 18:00 BW- Foto Hüblerstr. 3 01309 Dresden
Sa., 06.09.2008 11:00 - 19:00 Foto Mikus Rechtstr. 7-11 45355 Essen
Sa., 06.09.2008 10:00 - 19:00 Foto Lambertin Auf der Domplatte 50667 Köln
Sa., 06.09.2008 09:30 - 18:00 BW- Foto Hüblerstr. 3 01309 Dresden

Nothing will happen tomorrow. Please refrain from correcting my statements if you don't know better. Thank you.

Not that it is worth much, we all know cabbies but...

As point of reference I took the mode dial and the lens

What is shown on the cab is much smaller than the K20D
If the taxi door camera measured 149x110x77 900gr what possibly could be inside that body?

If I look at I get "under construction" and
"Try these searches related to"
Only two of those are photography related, 32 others are about bras....
Not sure what to think of that

Could easily be a Pentaxian hedging his bets by buying the domain hoping Pentax will pay him for it when the K30D does come out.

Why do you say that? I am sure no matter what is revealed, it will be interpreted and discussed and new rumours will start immediately :-)

From a topic on, where someone stated that Ritz said that Pentax would go out of business:

"Being a Ritz Camera employee, I can assure you that the salespeople have no "inside" information about Canon, Nikon, Pentax, etc. To the contrary, about 5 or 6 new items have showed up in our digital stockbook for Pentax in the last week, which would be absurd if they were going out of business.

He didn't tell more about those new items though
