Prediction

The next camera model will not be named the "K30D". Instead, following the scheme introduced with the K-m/K2000, it will be called the K30 in the U.S., and the K-XXX in other markets.

Presumably it will feature special processing modes which render skin tones very nicely.

I think there are quite a few folks around here who would be quite happy if it were the Pentax PDQ.

Pentax is getting more clever....future camera body will only have K printed, then along with the box is a set of numbers, or letters, which user can paste on next to the K......

I would rather assume that the different number in the US is to flag the gray market equipment in the US and protect Pentax-USA from warranty claims on grey market bodies.
