Ahem!
The 'never used to' refers to the 'stick with' - that was my intention, anyway

That's a pretty bold call as we know three fifths of five eighths of b.... all (as they say).

When the K-*isn't is finally released, this thread should be compiled into a book.
So instead of the yearbook it goes into the threadbook, got it.

K-100 YEARS would be literally meaningful.
How about K-C, then?

More precisely, in French K-C is homophonous to cassé, which means broken.

I'm having dejà vu here. Haven't we had this *exact same* thing a million pages ago with the K-C name?

Yes! That would be perfect.
Nice, but too big. And companies don't like to tie their products to dates (Windows...)

Since it is a big (in importance) APS camera, it could be called KAPS.

There was also a KX. And a KM. In fact, from the original KSeries film SLRs, the K2 is the only one whose name hasn't been reused. Hmmm... both the K-m and K-x were entry level cameras, mimicking their film counterparts. The K2 was top-of the line so they might bring back the name.

I wouldn't be surprised if the flagship lines got consolidated K-1 mk X and K-2 mk Y, à la Canon/Sony/Olympus.
I think the "excessive" use of K3 mk3 in this forum would be given (in Pentax board meetings) as a reason against that.
