Actually, I think that it's one of the best threads i've ever seen on here. One of the more intelligent ones, too!

and have armadillos in its trousers - it's really quite frightening!

I've also heard the color of black Pentax is going to use is going to make people ask - "How much blacker can it get?" and the answer is none... none more black.
Right now, both K-Mart and Sears are not going to carry the K30d. Something about a picture of a girl on all fours. Maybe Ben has been working overtime...

For the K30D, Pentax will replace the RAW button on the camera with a beer dispenser. Beer is stored in the separately available beer grip.

Well, offering money for urban legends on a photography forum is a sarcasm magnet, everyone should know this.

Btw Hoya marketing really wanted a revolutionary in-body EMP pulse that fryies every non-Pentax DSLR in a 15 meters range...just to improve marketshare

Why do you need a grip for big bottoms? Why don't you use a tripod like the rest of us?

I've also heard that the autofocus system will leap frog the competition by leaps and bounds. It's been noted that when taking pictures of Stonehenge, Intraveous de Milo, and dwarfs that the camera doesn't autofocus at all, the scene automatically focuses for the camera!

Pentax show it on PMA, and K30D has 4 colours, black, white, camouflage and invisible.
Lets hope they can finish other versions than that invisible one too, in time

I heard it will rid the world of "Adobe" and come with something completely proprietary called "darkroom" with sodium vapor lights and black bags of sexy paper not in A4 but in size ANSEL.

1 cent to whoever figures out what this is derived from:

Some say the K30D never blinks and that the K30D roams around the woods at night foraging for wolves.

Some say the K30D wanted by the CIA and that the K30D sleeps upside down, like a bat.

Some say that the K30D's breath smells of magnesium.

Some say that the K30D voice can only be heard by cats and that the K30D has two sets of knees.

Some say that the K30D terrified of ducks and that there’s an airport in Russia named after it.

Some say that the K30D brain is a Satellite navigation system.

Some say that the K30D skin has the texture of a dolphin’s, and where ever you are in the world if you tune your radios to 88.4, you can actually hear the K30D thoughts.

Some say that the K30D politics are terrifying, and that the K30D once punched a horse to the ground.

Some say that the K30D tears are adhesive - and that if the K30D caught fire, he'd burn for a thousand days.

Some say that the K30D can swim seven lengths under water - and the K30D has webbed buttocks.

Some say that the K30D's heart is in upside down - and that the K30D teeth glow in the dark.

Some say that the K30D's ears aren’t exactly where you'd expect them to be - and that once, preposterously, the K30D had an affair with John Prescott.

Some say the K30D has a digital face - and if the K30D felt like it, the K30D could fire Alan Sugar.

Some say that the K30D genitals are on upside down. And that if the K30D could be bothered, the K30D could crack the Da Vinci Code in 43 seconds.

Some say that on really warm days the K30D sheds the K30D skin, like a snake, and for some reason the K30D allergic to the Dutch.

Some say that the K30D first name really is 'The'; and that if the K30D went on Celebrity Love Island, they'd all be pregnant including the cameramen.

Some say the K30D once threw a microwave oven at a tramp, and that long before anyone else the K30D realized that Jade Goody was a racist pig-faced waste of blood and organs.

Some say that the K30D once had a vicious knife fight with Anthea Turner, and that the K30D is in no way implicated in the cash for honours scandal.

Some say that the K30D a C.I.A. experiment that went wrong, and that the K30D only eats cheese.

Some say that if you lick the K30D's chest it tastes exactly the same as piccalilli. And that at this week's Brit awards the K30D was arrested for goosing Russell Brand.

Some say that the K30D sucks the moisture from ducks. And that the K30D crash helmet is modeled on Britney Spear's head.

Some say that the K30D isn't machine-washable and all the K30D potted plants are called Steve
