Where the bejeesus do you people see these things? I want to see them too!
Is this what these guys are talking about?

http://www.pentax.jp/english/imaging/digital/lens/roadmap.pdf

(edit: this is dated March 18, 2008. There must be something more recent.)

So - how fast is the DA 30mm likely to be? I hope Pentax does not abandon fast lenses. I'd like to see this at least f/2, preferably f/1.4.

Hm, calling the camera "K-m" doesn't mean it is the birth of a new serie.
or is it? Will the replacement of the K200D be called K-l? And then we have K-s?
Oh no, not changing names - again!
I kind of liked this K1.. K2... K3... idea.

But I guess K2000D was too long for it to fit on the body.

Change of Family Name

Changng name is not a good thing. But if the name has not gained good perception but the reverse from the public, then it has to be changed. The dumbest *ist is the best example. EOS, in contrast, is a name that should never be changed.

Well, how about the EOS1000D then? Which is longer? :-)

Huh? I has a K in front of it. I dont think the name change is going to affect anything at all... That's laughable.

There is no way anyone is not going to know it's a Pentax and Not know its the lowest end (cheapest by a lot) or Not buy it because it has a M on it. I don't ever hear anyone call the Canons the EOS's

I like name - K-M -
M is 1000 in latin digits or it can mean MINI...
Good move in low-end sector.

Pentax had long tradition of using roman numbers for their SLR - like LX is sixty and MX is 1010. So M stands for 1000. That's logical. And who needs the D in 2008? Everything is digital already.

It is the "DA Super Tele". No more details are given.

I guess they will be switching to L or M soon when they come with a new generation :-) I still believe the pro camera if it ever arrived will be L1 or LD, or even possibly LXD
