News from France

Here a french "photo" mag (Réponses Photo) publish an article in which a new DSLR is announced for may.The tone of article is quite certain.
A friend of mine (warning this is a "man who saw the man who saw the bear news" as we said here ) spoke with a pentax guy that said there is a new DSLR this summer. The pentaxman said to him (my friend is a semi-pro canon photographer) that's pentax is late comapring to canikon so this new item would be a DSLR that will "jump" a generation and will bring something new.
Wait and see. let me torture my friend to have something more substantial..

That's bound to be the K7D again...

I wonder how many primary sources we are talking about here? It seems there are many sources for similar info, thus making the upcoming announcement of a new advanced DSLR camera very probable. However, it may just as well be that all these sources go back onto one single speculating source that is nowhere near anything real?

May I add that it will be a major breakthrough?!

Don't underestimate Hoya Corp.

That one comes in support of my prediction. We only need a few more details. Nevertheless it's all written on the Stars already. Inside LV, way better AF, new shutter technology with auto multiple exposure on the same shot for extended DR, new H****** sensor, improved Mount, all your prayers come true. WOW.

There's no doubt theres a new camera to be anounced in May with a summer release. All we know about it is how the front of the prism looks....

Hmm, good point. Well, it's not too far off, anyway. We'll probably get more details in a few weeks time.

well if Nikon is making a camera with a "revolving" back D5000 in 2009

chances are Pentax will surpise us since they did something like this in the early 2000s

That is one of the ugliest cameras I have ever seen in my life.
All I want is a Dslr that will let me take video with my Pentax lenses. High ISO and fast autofocus for indoor sport would be nice too.

There is a new Pentax camera coming this summer, yes. But it will not skip a generation, no.
