What is strange is that they managed to put the teaser up *before* may 20...

Usually new models appear on Pentax Canada's website about 6 months after they've been available.

As with all Pentax subs, I think Pentax Canada is looking to make changes to improve its customer service. My experience has been great with customer support staff...better than US support. It has been slow in the past but improving monthly. Information provided has been clear and reliable.

And welcome changes too. Seems that Pentax rugged+weatherproof positioning is a perfect match for Canada.

My earlier ironic comment was prompted mostly by the fact that their website pales in comparison to the US (isn't that the story of our life in Canuckistan, though?).

I haven't had much to do with Pentax Canada customer support as they never replied to my emails...

Aren't you kind of optimistic with that statement?

I love the french version: "Le NEW K arrive le 20 mai". I guess "NOUVEAU" takes too much place?

No no no, it means the upcoming camera's name is literally "New K"

As japan is in Asia, the time zone is different, so the different date. Asia is one day ahead of the US/Canada continent

Wait, why is the Pentax South Africa web site (Pentax - Homepage) under a Fujifilm domain? If Fujifilm is distributing Pentax in SA, their motivation appears to be lacking.

It must be the first time ever that Pentax Canada is ahead of Pentax U.S.A. Worth noting on the calendar.
