You're pretty pathetic with this thread but I guess you know that already. It's bad if they don't do something and worse if they do. You go the whole mile to be "ironic" towards Pentax when in fact all you have to do is to get 10 more yards and switch to another brand that will cure your inferiority complexes.

Get a life!
Radu

P.S. In case you didn't noticed it's January 5th in your part of the world. Maybe you expected all those DSLRs on 2nd and you feel disappointed?

Am I missing something here? I took this post to be a little tongue in cheek, but hardly deserving of vitriol...

Lighten up Radu. The header caught my attention and the announcements made me smile. With all the BS being spread on all the speculation threads it is nice to have a little smile.

Yep we all know Pentax is bad if they don't do something but it's worse if they do because it gives "us" less reasons to piss and moan.

P.S. P70 looks like a nice mid range compact with some nice innovations inside.

lighten up everyone.

IMHO, this is just the appetizer. the main course is yet to come.

who's going to look at the P&S's if they introduce the DSLR's first?

RaduA, let's not make these posts personal. bobrapp's comments were clearly a bit sarcastic and nothing wrong with that. Maybe you missed that in the translation. Lets keep it more balanced and avoid taking 'shots' at each other.

I'm actually in the market for a P&S and wonder why real IS is not offered on the P70. Am I missing something?

Will probably get the Canon PowerShot SD 880 IS.

That P70 looks pretty sweet, looks dang tiny. I hope Pentax makes their own LX3-kind of camera!

We are all going to be so mad when Pentax comes out with the next big one and we buy it . . . only to find the real next big one comes out the following year.
