The name of the new Pentax body is...

K7D.

Embargo on the news has been started, but the specs will be available soon :-)

K-m / K2000 already droped the "D" part in the name, are you sure about the new camera still having a "D" in its name?

So I guess the answer to the "is this pic of K30D" question, is.. "no" :P
Too bad though, if this is a successor to the K20D, then the K30D name is much more logical..

Is it truth? or guess?

I heard - K7 without any D.

The last camera was MZ-7 with 7

It's a rumour like everything in this place :-)
But the fact is that many distributors have been notified that the premier has been coming... And they don't say anything about "7" not "30";-)

Hoya/Pentax are on record saying they do not consider this camera to be the K20D's successor.

New line. Not K20D's successor.

semantics...
This will (most probably) be the "better" camera for people who wants to upgrade their K20D, or maybe upgrade something else (K10/K200 etc) but want to go one step higher than the current (pretty old) K20D.

So, will there eventually be a successor to the 20D, or is that line ending?

There is nothing announced. OTOH there is a successor to the K200D due early next year.

Here is my take

2009 Summer: K-Z/K35 (oversea/US)
2009 Fall: K-S/K300
2009 Holiday: K-M Super/ K2000 Super (more color )
2010 Fotokina K-L/K3 (full frame announcement )
2010 Holiday: K-V /K3000 (cheapest video DSLR)

Yes - and End 2010: complete rework of planned 645D

Mid 2011 - Pentax launches new 645D Prototype, now with 45 MP (competitors reach 90 MP)

End 2011 - Pentax announces two new lenses for proposed 645D

Mid 2012 - first 645D prototypes announced for Photokina 2012

Photokina 2012 - Pentax 645D finally spotted by insiders under a desk at the Pentax Photokina booth

This is the real Never-ending-story...
