why not make up stuff that's fun?!
But I don't find this fun though. Seriously, this is a rumors forum, and I am really looking forward to some solid rumors. But if everyone is making stuff up (with an eye catching title), and create new models using Photoshop, then this would render this sub-forum worthless.

I appreciate threads like this. They have become part of the culture here. New camera coming? Let's see who can make the most outrageous photochop of it! (Anybody remember the Nat Geo button?) They help me sit back and remember, 'It's just a camera.' Besides, if you want serious news, check out the latest from Lehman Brothers and Merril Lynch

Title Got Me!

You dirty dog! My first thought was who does he know to get this kind of information, then I opened the thread and alas......I was humored, but disappointed that it was not true. I will repay you some day! hehehehe

I so fell for this post.

Good one!

Wish it was true. Sigh. Back to my regular program.

Couple months ago I created a thread in which the title suggested preview/images from the new DA* 55, but it was my new-to-me K 55 1.8 instead. I thought it was kinda funny, but it made some people crabby, and then I think a German site linked to it as the 'real' DA 55 for a while even though I identified the lens in the initial post.

When there's no real intention to mislead, and it's obviously a joke, it's all in good fun.

I think K50-RS is actually a Renault engine code.

"solid rumors""serious rumors" are contradictions in terms.
At least Pentax may eget ideas from posts like this

Sometimes Rumors can have a bit of truth if we can read between the lines. From the various threads I have read I see some pieces of info that when put together would unveil almost all the truth. But rumors are like that. Mystery!
