If it's 7 a.m. Eastern, it's 6 a.m. Central. Not even a new camera can get me out of bed that early

Judging from pass history, the press release will leaked at least two days before hand.

Well, if it's anything like the Pentax we know and love, they will scrap the thing about 2 days before release.

I'm willing to bet it'll continue the count: -1...-2...

which makes it 5 AM here in the mountain west, at which point it'd be easier for me to stay up waiting than wake up early

of course. I just hope the USD exchange rate will keep dropping until then, so I can actually think about buying one

I think

I think I might make it an event. Invite my Nikon friend, My wife and friends. They can all watch me crap myself in anticipation and drown in tears and sweat.
Boy is it going to be cool.
Or I could just not watch.
