PMA Prediction...

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.

My fearless speculation: They will release a reworked version of the 645D, and show (maybe under glass) a new model, significantly more advanced than the K20D, scheduled for release in a few months. Later this year, they will announce a K20D+K200D replacement, which will have at least the specs of the K20D, but in a more compact body and with some stuff to attract newbies (better LV, video mode and scene modes).

I was of the opinion that Pentax will release the 14mp K300. But now I think they won't release anything in the first half of the year.

Except the showing of the 60-250mm under glass, of course.

I predict that there will be a new model replacing the K20D...Perhaps some other news.

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

´Maybe any new lens under glass. We all hope DA30*

>Or maybe a Bigtax (like bigma)

A replacement to the k20d....maybe maybe. Not sure.

In case of yes...please pentax, no more pixels :ugh:

medium format...I would like that, but with the body of Pentax 67

Yeah, I'm with you in still being a little optimistic.

I think we'll see that, and either a K200D super or a K300 — something to kick it up out of competition with the K2000.

And I can still hope for something about the DA★ 30mm.

K30D (?) will be in shops in Q2 (May, maybe close to June).
We will see new lens roadmap, I hope.

I do not like the Idea of the BigTAX, sounds expensive. Although it will have SDM and weather sealing.

I think no dSLR/dSLR lens will be announced I hope I'm mistaken. Anyway, I don't havo any intent to buy anything else this year (maybe only a very cheap silicon cell light meter and some more B&W films and developers ).
