K-7 announces the end of the K line of cameras

The end is near....
Either they count down form K-7 to K-1 which leave only six more top line K-models of court upward , which gives us only two more top line K-models before the confusion with the K10D starts. Ofcourse there is some difference between K10D and K-10 but it is not enough to really distinguish them.

And who said that Pentax is going to use K with only numbers?
We have the K-m, remember? We can have K-a, K-b, K-c, K-d and everything down to K-z. Then we of course can have KZ-1, KA-20, KD-5 or whatever.

But then we come into the territory of different model lines....
Like the KX/K100, then MX, LX, then we had MZ50 and MZ-S, PZ series, the SF series..

I am talking about the existing K series

If Pentax start calling new cameras K-X, K-E, K-S, would you consider it a separated line? What about K-M?

I think using other brands single number=top tier, double or triple number = lower end is the best system, for now.

Time for an L- or M- series.

They'll save that for later. They're not there yet. Not yet as unique as the LX, not yet as compact as the original M-series.

Is it just me or how can a camera starting with the letter K can announce the end of the K line of cameras?
