Can't we at least wait until it gets half a million views?

OK lets speculate on the K30D. The K-7 is old news

Humm I want:
- ISO 25,600, K20D body, New grip like the K-7 but with a working card slot.
-New KAF3b mount that supports M42 and M series lenses.
-Programmable lens adjustment for any mounted lens. -
Lets revolutionize the chip.
-Make it capable of tilt and shift so all your wide/macro lenses can be T/S.
-Split screens for MF.
-Flash system supports TTL and P-TTL. 1/500th Sync.
-No pop up flash and an LX Style VF that can take various VF units.
-Detachable WiFi LCD.
-AE-L that holds the settings after the camera goes to sleep.

That's enough for now.

I don't think I have been this excited about a camera before. (On paper at least) it has everything I have been looking for, and addressed the weaknesses in the k20d. I also look forward to video, to reduce my bag even further since there are times that I like a little video (kids events etc.)

I have seen the thread was CLOSED after this very post and "Sorry Smiley".

What has happened to the closure? Was it a joke?



Do we want a poll whether to close the thread now, in 30 days, or keep it open forever?

Don't bother. It'll just die out when people run out of stupid things to say.

In answer to your first question, I believe Marc locked it and Adam unlocked it.

Adam posted into it after I closed it - he requested it remain open...

I re-opened the thread since there seemed to be enough ongoing interest in addition to Adam's request.

So IS it a pic of the K30?

Did anybody ever answer the original question? Just curious.

And rampant specualtion about an f1.0 lens....nice! These bad time are good times for Pentax, it seems.

And I'd HATE to be the last post in this thread...that'd be like the guy who cancelled Star Trek...or the original Iron Chef!

Cheers,
Cameron

This confirms a PS3 slim is coming and shows a big difference in style between Sony and Pentax in dealing with leaked corporate information
I have updated my prior post. FWIW.
