I assure you, that's one thng you can file under 'not gonna happen.' Micro Four Thirds is basically just trying to salvage a notion that seemed sensible enough at the time, but just isn't panning out.

I predict that pentax will have some cameras and lenses on display. As to which ones?, you'll find out on tuesday am 10am PST.
Great, So I will find out on Wednesday morning.

Not to be immature Mark, but, COME ONNN MAAAAAAN.

Just a quick question. Does Hoya run a tighter ship than Pentax.
BTW, when are you going to post more images from that DA*55 ??

I also predict that there will be no Pentax camera known as a K7 .... Perhaps a K007 licensed to kill canikon but not a K7.

Here's my prediction (and I've NEVER been wrong!)


No matter what is offered, some of us won't be happy.

@ Tom S

That's for sure!

German Rumours (Insiders'/Sellers' Predictions) tell there will be a K20D replacement,
announced for July. But only announced, not shown!

Aside from that Pentax is developing something new and interesting,
but no FF and digital medium Format!

DA Limited 15 and DA* 60-250 shown and announced with concrete release dates!

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.

Jason
I put my money on the O.P. but I think the mid-level body will be out of the case. I think we will also see a few lenses.

It's about time you guys wake up and face reality. This is not the time to bring anything new to the market.

The fact that it has a macro symbol on a dedicated button makes me think this is a bridge camera rather than an EVIL.
