And I've read that exact post 3 times, by the same person, in this one section, which is against forum rules and just plain bloody annoying.
if it's true, it's no good at all...

Did you notice that everywhere it written only SAFOX without a number. I think that's because it's "...... and a half".
Didn't you see RaduA's hints in the other longer news thread that there is something unique and new with the K-m autofocus...

Unique is no manual AF points selection.

Now that is one hell of an idea.

Maybe they'll make one with a split-prism screen, no auto-focus whatsoever, and without a built-in flash. Ahhhhhhh......Heaven.

Stop trolling Ogl, no reason to replace RH except maybe if you're in fact the same person.

*ist DL/DS/K100D had manual selection of AF points.

I think that NEW 2004-2005 year began for Pentax.

Ben kanarek promised FF this September, but I don't even see something higher K20D.

Do you like K-m? Is it faster than K200D in AF speed?

Do you have any evidence for that? I've got lots of off-centre shots with minimum DOF that say you're wrong.

Trying to calculate when the DA*30 will be out...

How long ago did the DA*55 first appear on the roadmap, then finally with some specs. Now with a revised aprox. date of January. The poor DA*30 doesn't even have an aperture listed yet... Maybe first quarter 2010? Now all those missing lenses like the 135, those aren't even a blip on the map yet.

I'm really excited about the ringlight glad i didnt get a 3rd party.
I'm with you. My old ring flash is pretty old in the tooth and non-dedicated. I can't wait to see the new one!

Because I don't need the others.

There's a slight difference between an assumption and a promise. You should learn it.

But AFAIK the DA18-250 appeared almost before it was on any roadmap....
