Pentax great at keeping the lid on new K7

Interesting to read all the stuff about what the new K7.... may feature and may not. So far ...here we are...just a few short days from the K7 introduction and so far nothing definite.

Pentax has done a great job of enforcing the 'Cone of Silence" and so far things seem to be pretty well leak free of actual details.....

Oh there's been some educated guesswork...but no real picture with actual details, besides that vague out of focus ' possible' pictures of the new machine.

I'm looking forth to when is it...May the 20th or the 21rst...to actually see the new body and it's features.

I think Pentax has done a great job of building up the tension among the Pentaxians out there.

Really? I'm of the impression that we know everything now. The only uncertainty is what material it built of. Some say magnesium alloy. Some says plastic. Some say both to be at the safe side.

I think we can assume theres nothing special about the viewfinder....Except that it is probably quiet good...

Body material ?? I don't know
WB?? I don't know
New AF? I don't know
VF? I don't know
fps? I don't know
Buffer? I don't know
Video performance? I don't know

Only thing I reall know is that is somewhat resembles a camera and you can stick lenses on it. I guess in all posts in "the other thread" (at leats the ones I managed to read) I have not even read in hint that it will ave the Pentax K-Mount so I believe that to be an assumption of sorts, so again "I don't know"

New AF? I don't know everyone everywhere says yes
VF? I don't know there will be a viewfinder. The kind you can see through
fps? I don't know If you're into sports shooting, go for the machine guns
Buffer? I don't know ditto
Video performance? I don't know it's said to be quite good

There you go. Sleep well.

Wait for another two years, if Pentax survives!

In the meantime, they have the K-7. If the K-7 will be successful, they survive. Otherwise, they will die! (I firmly believe!)

The press release was sent out at least a few days ago. Some people probably knew the details even before that.
