Nope, just 4 ... 2 now. It's a party thread - I'll explain in a minute.

OK, you're it! Every tenth poster from here to 2,000 has to invent a new feature for the alleged camera...

Oh and buy a round for the house. This should hasten things along

OK: The rumor I heard is that the viewfinder has IR amplification to allow the photographer to manually focus in the dark. This was done as as an alternative to making the AF work better in low-light.

A little bird told me that in order to win over Nikon users the grip for the K-7 has been redesigned to quadruple to the size of the camera. Because we all know that if the camera isn't bigger than your head, it must be a dumb camera.

He also hinted that the new AF system will blow Canikon away in speed, but only by taking every shot at F/32 so it only has to approximate the focus.


Cheers

That is not entirely true. From what I heard, the K-7 will be a fixed-focus, hyperfocal lens camera, thus making it the fastest focussing DSLR on the planet!

nothing but tumbleweeds here. and this is Pentax Forums, everyone else has long moved on already.

meanwhile Olympus' micro 4/3rds entry is going to make a very big splash. adding to the already heavy G1/GH1 hysteria as everyone's really waiting for Oly's m4/3 lenses. their announcement is also right on the horizon, and i worry that it will drown-out Pentax's nostalgia-heavy message whenever they get there. "see the industry evolve while Pentax keeps looking backward" kinda thing.

Pentax had all this time to themselves and the leaks had everyone looking their way. not anymore. they just left time for expectations to ferment and crescendo higher so that the inevitable disappointment will fall that much harder.
