Official Pentax Announcement

Dear Pentaxian friends,

Get on this site or on http://pentaxdslrs.blogspot.com/ tonight at 11:59 Pacific Time (California Time) because as the clock turns to midnight, the new Pentax equipment being introduced in Cologne Germany will be announced on this site as well. There are some new exciting stuff being introduced by Pentax.

Some of the equipment being sold in the USA will be slightly different than what's being introduced in Germany.

We will have pictures and specifications of everything being introduced.

Stay tuned.

Crud--that's 2:59am in my neck of the woods. I guess I'll have to wait until I get up about 3 hours later to rush over to my computer and take a peek before I head off to work (sigh).

Well, at least it's just hours away.

If I didn't have class in the morning I'd stay up and check it, but I guess I'll have to check it when I get up at 7

It was kind of odd that the K-m name was shown and then it evolved into the K2000 (As it should be in my opinion).

I like the ring flash...

I think that the K2000 is for US market and the K-m is for the other markets.
Like in the old times.
