Commendable. But it doesn't help with sales.
Hope this new flagship will.

On another forum, someone claiming having them from Pentax posted the following specs:

Name: K7
Same sensor as the K20D
Up to 6400 ISO with better noise treatment
5 images/sec
100 % viewfinder
Better weatherproofing
Mirror lockup
Liveview and HD Video
Better stabilizer .
Better DRE mode
77 zones light metering
Much better AF system even with non-SDM lenses
3 inches/ 920 000 pixels screen with in-body editing (crop...)
1/8000 shutter with 1/250 sync
Very agressive pricing, less than 1500€ with the kit lens

Please do not shoot the messenger. We'll see if it's true shortly I guess.

If the specs are true, I'll get the body asap, whether it be named K7, K30 or something like *kist+- (you never know with Pentax, may have some meaning in Japanese...)

Why not? 1/8000 and 1/250 sync are rather standard on top-level bodies (40D, 50D, A700, E-3, D300). Nothing out of the ordinary.

77 zones metering: Why not? I believe the 16-segments is as old as the first *ist D. It's about time for an upgrade.

December 20, 2012 -. Pentax ships the first 645D AND the first MZ-D, a FF, narrow-profile, digital body.

December 21, 2012 - You know what happens
December 22, 2012 - The real intended ship date of the DA* 60-250 f/4.

Ah yes, the Mayan Calender. Where can I get one and does it have a countdown verion with chocolates for each day left?

Pentax has hidden the message in plain sight for all of us...

M42 = We are all screwed.
K = Kill.
M = Massacre.
A = Annihilation.
FA = sweet FA left.
DFA = Death For All.
DA = daeD llA - look in the mirror.
DA* = see DA.

...ok, so what's next and will Pentax make a new line of lenses even though there are only 3 years left?

Sounds great - and a lot more sober than the weird and wild speculations about hexagonal sensors and what not..

If true or nearly, I buy it ASAP to replace my K10D.

Ditto. Sounds like an extremely good companion for birding with my Sigma 500/4.5 APO EX.

Definitely sounds good.
I love the in-body cropping idea! if it's true - it's a great feature.

If these specs are true then it'll give Canikon a run for their money. Especially if the 3200 ISO is mostly (if not completely) noise free.

I too would be one of those people in line for this camera if these would be the specs.

I continue to forward infos I got from another forum (www.photim.com, in French).

At least one german online shops announces something:

TeKaDe - Deutschlands und Österreichs Pentax Shop Nr. 1

"Pentax neue DSLR KxxD ab sofort per Mail bestellbar. Preis um EUR 1500,00. Auslieferung Ende Juni/Anfang Juli 2009!"

Basically, "new Pentax KxxD DSLR, Price around 1500€, available around end of June/July 2009"

pm42, there are several topics here discussing the new camera and that store has been mentioned.

"HD video". Any idea what kind of?
