the epson rf looks like just a rehash of the old RD-1 ... 1.5 crop factor on RF is quite annoying

60-250 will not be under glass. It will be copys that you can try out.

Actually, the 60-250 has been "out of the glass" since last september: I tried one out last october in Paris.

Predictions (0,15€ the bunch...):

Showcasing DA 55f1.4 (it was under glass at the last photoshow I went), DA 15f4 and (hopefully) DA 60-250, maybe even the SDM converter...

Sneak peak at K20D successor.

That's all folks! (I know it's a bit short but you had it for really cheap!!)

My prediction,

Pentax will show, under glass only, 2 new DSLR models to be released at a future date. One of which will of course be a flagship and the other a mid-level body.

There will be lots of ooh's and ah's, but we will have to wait until 3rd quarter to see them on the shelves, possibly even 4th quarter.

i want my 20 seconds back.

Well all previous pages were *.jp, like this one: K20DƒXƒyƒVƒƒƒ‹ƒTƒCƒgbPENTAX
So most likely both of them (*.org, *.com) are not real.

Im expecting few (lens, some .. Super cameras, accesories, P&S) minor updates or just a couple more serious things (like k20d successor, release of 60-250 or 15mm) but nothing extraordinary, like completely new type camera or something.

I predict that they will announce the "K-M Liberace" - it will be white and pink with lots of diamonds. Instead of the normal strap, the strap will be of mink fur

I expect Pentax will release a DA* Macro 10-750 f/1.2 that weighs only 2 pounds and only sticks out 5 inches from the body as well as having a 4 inch barral diameter. The lens will have corner to corner razor sharpness at all focal lengths and f-stops. The lens will contain firmware that will also contain an extra processing chip that will boost the shooting speed of all Pentax DSLRS to 15fps and the image processing will make it possible to take noise free pictures at 1600ISO.

The lens will also only be usable on Pentax bodies so any other camera that tries to use the lens via an adaptall mount will have the words "AUTO SELF-DESTRUCT IN 10...9...8..." and then shut the camera down with a little explosion graphic when the countdown reaches 0. The camera will be fine of course.

The lens will MSRP at $400 but one will be able to pick one up on Amazon for around $85.

They will release a digital rangefinder.

No wait, Epson beat them to it:
Ooh, there's a happy to file under 'Beautiful Things I can't afford'

I expect we'll see *something,* even if it is under glass, some things have to have been in the pipeline, whatever the economic situation is now.
