MOM, Look what they've done to my LX!




And I'm unable to attend the announcement live

Sounds like it'll be a nuKlear week. End of next month? The anticipation is nibbling at my shins!

The grip is so comfortably cold that I can feel the heat of my blood pulsating while I enter another world via that wonderful viewfinder, ouch.

And the gorgeous bird jumped swiftly from the branch and flew away through the morning mist. I hope that the 8 frames I shot are OK.

Now do I sell my LX to get this new... LX? Or wait until fall and try and scoop one up, plus the requisite DA wide angle.

Looking good, Pentax.

You wait. I can just imagine how nice it will be to put those two together side-by-side.

Not to mention you can still keep shooting film alongside digital if you feel the bug again.

Must.
Not.
Speculate.

Ah, what the heck. 8fps?

Keeping that in mind, this is a remarkably quick turnaround from teasers to announcement. C'mon, Pentax, you've got to give us at least 6 months to brew over the obscure symbols on the new buttons before you actually announce anything? Next month? I'm feeling rushed. Disoriented, more like. I think I need to sit down.

And lets not forget the Pentax 645D either. Now when was that first announced, and when will it ever be available...

Oh...I just got it...

I could not figure out what was meant by "LX" until I turned K7 upside down. Now if that is not tricky, I don't know what is...

@Steve (and others): I am new to Pentax and have never used any film SLR's let alone the LX. I was just curious what attributes of the LX make it so endearing to so many long-time Pentaxians. I have seen several different threads where posters say they wish this next camera is a modern digital LX. Others (MX, KX) are mentioned but it seems that the LX is more revered? Anyone care to give some insight/history? Thanks...
