Salty, what a silly question! When the specs are released we'll start talking about how ISO6400 is better than K20D's ISO1600, or the VF isn't as bright as they promised, or 5fps is actaully 4.672592fps in real life, or why there's a dash in the name, or why there's a minor mistake in some unidentified EXIF label... All this without ever having held, let alone shot with the camera.

I can't wait to start beeyotchin' about it wit mah P peeps!
+1. The forum will be flooded with threads full of complaints (most likely slow AF and FPS count compared to other cameras) and threads patting Pentax's back for a job well done. Tempers will flare, and some people will shoehorn FF discussions in the mix.

sheesh, just checked and 21st is ascension/day, which basicaly is a holiday therefore no business therefore no Pentax business therefore no news....
I just checked and May 21st is 小満 on the Japanese calendar and looks as though it might have been picked for superstitious/astrological reasons. However, on the Buddhist daily rotation it is 赤口, which is the absolute worst luck, except for the period between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Does anyone know the time of the announcement?

Told my wife new camera coming out and I am hoping to get it she said sure then I am getting a new car. Seems fair to me I may throw in the da 300 and 10-17 for sure that seems fair on the 21st I hope all will be well in the world and Pentax will tell some of us what we want to hear. For the other 85% of the people that complain no matter what get over it

For the most part, I expect lots of bitching and moaning.

Maybe it's a K11 if it's not going to be a K20 replacement ;-)

Didn't you hear about K-L in September and K-X in 2010, the latter being FF?
I think that the name of new camera lower than K-7 (easy downgrade of K-7) will be K-L or K-6. My confidence is 70%.

K-7 is so cool that it's very easy to make K-6 without front dial and cut some features. But what? And what sensor could be put to K-6?

So 3 p.m. Japan time.

I must say I am truly amazed they picked an inauspicious day to make the announcement, as this is something that lots of folks here take seriously.

I think not necessarily, the timer is related to the system time on your computer.
It shows 13d 6h 16m for me GMT+1

Necessarily.

The system time on my computer is Japan time.

Ah, ok, thank's. Must confess having been too lazy to make the calculation...
But there is still the question how literally this timer in spain correlates to a japanese time. I would assume the end of NDA to be the same for the whole world, but the timer just seems to count the hours until the beginning of the day of the announcement 00:00 in Europe.

Speculation never rests

In my case, I'll continue to obsess about Aperture 3 and Snow Leopard.

I'll check the specs when they become available from a source I know I can trust. Depending on these, I'll either pre-order immediately or wait until the next day. I know myself, and as such I know I won't be able to wait long. The little we already know is enough for me...

Next speculation for me will be when I will have it in my hands.
