Please Pentax, be the first to.....

Drop the darn D.
Nikon D something,
the Canon something D
Sony....... well Sony never started with a D. (I know monolta did.)
And Olympus.....E...... Darn it........ Olympus is always first....AAAAAAArrrrrgghhhhhh


Anyway. Even though you are not the first.... do not be the last. Like the K-m/K2000/ continue Dless. We all know they are digital.
The K7 sounds nice on its own. And K1 K2. But make sure you keep the D in the K3D. 3D is just plain coolio with me.
And do not go M8.2 Lietz ish.... K2.4 sounds crap.

Shades of when Rolls Royce wanted a new model named the Silver Mist. That lasted until someone realized what mist is in German.

When people ask me to "teach them a German word," they don't like drinking that certain clear soda made by Pepsi either

Whoever thought "mist" in english should mean "light rain" should be given an award or something

Ah ah ah, and I think we're still forgetting our quebecer friends.

Silver Mist? Do you remember the Toyota MR2? That was indeed a sh*tty name!

Ralph is a good name.

"Hey Norton, take a look at my new camera. It's a Pentax Ralph."

See, it works.

Honestly, if we take slang and jargon into account, we'll probably just have to stick to naming the new camera "PENTAX". Then again, that might be slang for "who?" in the Canon forums.
