New Pentax Stuff

I don't see any new stuff in the first quarter. But looking in to my magic crystal ball I see something in the 2nd quarter...But then again that is only my crystal ball speaking.

Yep, you did saw FF last year and after that you got into service your crystal ball. I am happy to see that it now works properly. And for the record the new high end camera will NOT have the same 14.6 Mp sensor that some hope/fear/think will.

Ben, I hope that you get something like my crystal ball it has Aero Bright Coating and thus I see a little further in time.

Regards,
Radu

I can already think about the pinnacle of entertainment on this forum: a contest about who's got the BIGGEST CRYSTAL BALL!

Way cool, Ben!

He basically told us that he has inside information that there will be a new body (at least) released in the second quarter. This is the 'Rumors' section, right?

Exactly, a rumor section .. not a I have info but im not allowed to say section.
Where in his post does it even hint at a new body, that is just you second guessing.

No kiddin'?

You mean that Pentax will announce something (s) at PMA and take it to market in the following months?!

Who would have thought?!

But seriously (and I ask all the other guys on the forum not to read Ben's reply... it's off the record) what "stuff" are you talking about... c'mon, no need to tell everyone, I'll keep it between you and me...


(phone rings...)

Oh hi Ben! How did you get my phone number?


Eh? What did you say? ... ... ... Oh yes, I forgot about the crystal bowl!! Works remarkably it seems...

So what about this second quarter...? No!!!! This not possible!!! ... ... ... they're never gonna believe it!!

Wow! Thanks for sharing this amazing news with me, and don't worry, my lips are sealed!

(Hangs up the phone and goes to bed with a big smile on his face...)

Unless it's leaked, we won't know till they tell us.

It could be that Pentax accidentally divided by zero and/or determined how to contain nuclear fusion on a sustainable level...


....or it could just be a release date for the 60-250.
